24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his
disciples came to [him] to show him the buildings of the
24:2 And Jesus said to them, See ye not all these things? verily
I say to you, There shall not be left here one stone upon
another, that shall not be thrown down.
24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came
to him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be?
and what [will be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of
24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, Take heed that no man
24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and
will deceive many.
24:6 And ye will hear of wars, and rumors of wars: see that ye
be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but
the end is not yet.
24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom: and there will be famines, and pestilences, and
earthquakes in divers places.
24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.
24:9 Then will they deliver you up to be afflicted, and will
kill you: and ye will be hated by all nations for my name's
24:10 And then will many be offended, and will betray one
another, and will hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets will rise, and will deceive many.
24:12 And because iniquity will abound, the love of many will
24:13 But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be
24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all
the world, for a testimony to all nations; and then shall the
24:15 When therefore ye shall see the abomination of desolation
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
(whoever readeth, let him understand,)
24:16 Then let them who are in Judea flee to the mountains:
24:17 Let him who is on the house-top not come down to take any
thing out of his house:
24:18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take
24:19 And woe to them that are with child, and to them that
nurse infants in those days!
24:20 But pray ye that your flight may not be in the winter,
neither on the sabbath:
24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been
since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever
24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there would no
flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be
24:23 Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here [is] Christ, or
there; believe [it] not.
24:24 For false Christs will arise, and false prophets, and will
show great signs and wonders; so that, if [it were] possible,
they would deceive the very elect.
24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
24:26 Wherefore, if they shall say to you, Behold, he is in the
desert; go not forth: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers;
believe [it] not.
24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth
even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man
24:28 For wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles be
24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall the
sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the
stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens
shall be shaken:
24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in
heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and
they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.
24:31 And he will send his angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they will gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.
24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig-tree; When its branch is
yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is]
24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know
that it is near, [even at] the doors.
24:34 Verily I say to you, This generation shall not pass, till
all these things shall be fulfilled.
24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not
24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the
angels of heaven, but my Father only.
24:37 But as the days of Noah [were], so will also the coming of
the Son of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood, they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the
day that Noah entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away:
so also will be the coming of the Son of man.
24:40 Then will two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
24:41 Two [women will be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.
24:42 Watch therefore; for ye know not what hour your Lord
24:43 But know this, that if the master of the house knew in
what watch the thief would come, he would watch, and would not
suffer his house to be broken up.
24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye
think not, the Son of man cometh.
24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord
hath made ruler over his household, to give them food in due
24:46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his lord, when he cometh,
shall find so doing.
24:47 Verily I say to you, that he will make him ruler over all
24:48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord
delayeth his coming;
24:49 And shall begin to beat [his] fellow-servants, and to eat
and drink with the drunken;
24:50 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he
looketh not for [him], and in an hour that he is not aware of,
24:51 And will cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion
with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
