Luke 21


21:1 And he looked up, and saw rich men casting their gifts into
 the treasury.
21:2 And he saw also a certain poor widow, casting in thither
 two mites.
21:3 And he said, Of a truth I say to you, that this poor widow
 hath cast in more than they all.
21:4 For all these have of their abundance cast in to the
 offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the
 living that she had.
21:5 And as some spoke of the temple, that it was adorned with
 goodly stones, and gifts, he said,
21:6 [As for] these things which ye behold, the days will come,
 in which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that
 will not be thrown down.
21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when will these
 things be? and what sign [will there be] when these things
 shall come to pass?
21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many
 will come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and the time
 draweth near: therefore go ye not after them.
21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars, and commotions, be not
 terrified: for these things must first come to pass: but the
 end [is] not immediately.
21:10 Then said he to them, Nation will rise against nation, and
 kingdom against kingdom:
21:11 And great earthquakes will be in divers places, and
 famines, and pestilences: and fearful sights, and great signs
 will there be from heaven.
21:12 But before all these they will lay their hands on you, and
 persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and
 into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my
 name's sake.
21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
21:14 Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate
 before what ye shall answer.
21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your
 adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
21:16 And ye will be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and
 kinsmen, and friends; and [some] of you will they cause to be
 put to death.
21:17 And ye will be hated by all [men] for my name's sake.
21:18 But there shall not a hair of your head perish.
21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies,
 then know that its desolation is nigh.
21:21 Then let them who are in Judea flee to the mountains; and
 let them who are in the midst of it depart [from it]; and let
 not them that are in the countries enter into it.
21:22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which
 are written may be fulfilled.
21:23 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that
 nurse infants in those days! for there shall be great distress
 in the land, and wrath upon this people.
21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be
 led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be
 trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles
 shall be fulfilled.
21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and
 in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with
 perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for apprehension
 of those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers
 of heaven shall be shaken.
21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud,
 with power and great glory.
21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up,
 and lift up your heads: for your redemption draweth nigh.
21:29 And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig-tree, and
 all the trees;
21:30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your
 ownselves that summer is now nigh at hand.
21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass,
 know that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
21:32 Verily I say to you, This generation shall not pass away,
 till all be fulfilled.
21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my word shall not
 pass away.
21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts
 be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness, and cares of
 this life, and [so] that day come upon you unawares.
21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the
 face of the whole earth.
21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be
 accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to
 pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
21:37 And in the day-time he was teaching in the temple; and at
 night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called [the
 mount] of Olives.
21:38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the
 temple, to hear him.
