13:1 And as he was going out of the temple, one of his disciples
saith to him, Master, see what manner of stones, and what
buildings [are here]!
13:2 And Jesus answering said to him, Seest thou these great
buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that
shall not be thrown down.
13:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, over against the
temple, Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, asked him
13:4 Tell us, when will these things be? and what [will be] the
sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
13:5 And Jesus answering them, began to say, Take heed lest any
[man] deceive you:
13:6 For many will come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and
will deceive many.
13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars, be ye
not troubled: for [such things] must needs be; but the end
[will] not [be] yet.
13:8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom: and there will be earthquakes in [divers] places, and
there will be famines, and troubles: these [are] the beginnings
13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they will deliver you up
to councils; and in the synagogues ye will be beaten: and ye
will be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a
testimony against them.
13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
13:11 But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up, be not
anxious beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye
premeditate: but whatever shall be given you in that hour, that
speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit.
13:12 Now the brother will betray the brother to death, and the
father the son: and children will rise up against [their]
parents, and will cause them to be put to death.
13:13 And ye will be hated by all [men] for my name's sake: but
he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.
13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not,
(let him that readeth understand) then let them that are in
Judea flee to the mountains:
13:15 And let him that is on the house-top not go down into the
house, neither enter [it], to take any thing out of his house:
13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again to
take up his garment.
13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that
nurse infants in those days.
13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
13:19 For [in] those days shall be affliction, such as hath not
been from the beginning of the creation which God created to
this time, neither shall be.
13:20 And except the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh
would be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen,
he hath shortened the days.
13:21 And then, if any man shall say to you, Lo, here [is]
Christ; or lo, [he is] there; believe [him] not.
13:22 For false Christs, and false prophets will rise, and will
show signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even
13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall
be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that
are in heaven shall be shaken.
13:26 And then they shall see the Son of man coming in the
clouds with great power and glory.
13:27 And then he will send his angels, and will assemble his
elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth
to the uttermost part of heaven.
13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig-tree: When its branch is
yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come
to pass, know that it is nigh, [even] at the doors.
13:30 Verily I say to you, that this generation shall not pass,
till all these things shall be done.
13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not
13:32 But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no not the
angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the
13:34 [For the son of man is] as a man taking a long journey,
who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to
every man his work; and commanded the porter to watch.
13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the
house cometh, at evening, or at midnight, or at the
cock-crowing, or in the morning:
13:36 Lest coming suddenly, he should find you sleeping.
13:37 And what I say to you, I say to all, Watch.
