Signs of Christ's Return

1 Jesus R865 came R866 out from the temple and was going away when F512 His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him. 2 And He said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not R867 one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down."

3 As He was sitting on the R868 Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your R869 coming, and of the end F513 of the age?"

4 And Jesus answered and said to them, "See R870 to it that no one misleads you. 5 "For many R871 will come in My name, saying, `I am the Christ,' F514 and will mislead many. 6 "You will be hearing of wars R872 and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7 "For nation R873 will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines R874 and earthquakes. 8 "But R875 all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

9 "Then R876 they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you R877 will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 "At that time many will fall R878 F515 away and will betray F516 one another and hate one another. 11 "Many false R879 prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 "Because lawlessness is increased, most F517 people's love will grow cold. 13 "But R880 the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 "This gospel R881 of the kingdom shall R882 be preached in the whole world R883 F518 as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Perilous Times

15 "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION R884 OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the R885 holy place (let R886 the reader understand), 16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 17 "Whoever F519 is on the R887 housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. 18 "Whoever F520 is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. 19 "But woe R888 to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 "But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. 21 "For then there will be a great R889 tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. 22 "Unless those days had been cut short, no life F521 would have been saved; but for the R890 sake of the elect F522 those days will be cut short. 23 "Then R891 if anyone says to you, `Behold, here is the Christ,' F523 or `There F524 He is,' do not believe him. 24 "For false Christs and false R892 prophets will arise and will show F525 great signs R893 F526 and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the R894 elect. F527 25 "Behold, I have told you in advance. 26 "So if they say to you, `Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, `Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them. 27 "For R895 just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming R896 of the Son R897 of Man be. 28 "Wherever R898 the corpse is, there the vultures F528 will gather.

The Glorious Return

29 "But immediately after the tribulation R899 of those days THE R900 SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE R901 STARS WILL FALL from the F529 sky, and the powers of the F529 heavens will be shaken. 30 "And then the R902 sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the R903 SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31 "And He R904 will send forth His angels with A R905 GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect R906 F530 from the R907 four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Parable of the Fig Tree

32 "Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; 33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize F531 that He F532 is near, right at R908 the door. F533 34 "Truly I say to you, this R909 generation F534 will not pass away until all these things take place. 35 "Heaven R910 and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

36 "But of R911 that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. 37 "For the F535 coming R912 of the Son of Man will be just R913 like the days of Noah. 38 "For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying R914 and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah R915 entered the ark, 39 and they did not understand F536 until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming R916 of the Son of Man be. 40 "Then there will be two men in the field; one will F537 be taken and one will F537 be left. 41 "Two R917 women will be grinding at the mill; R918 F538 one will F539 be taken and one will F539 be left.

Be Ready for His Coming

42 "Therefore be R919 on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 "But be F540 sure of this, that if R920 the head of the house had known at R921 what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken F541 into. 44 "For this reason you R922 also must be ready; for the R923 Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

45 "Who R924 then is the faithful R925 and sensible R926 slave whom his master F542 put R927 in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 "Blessed is that slave whom his master F543 finds so doing when he comes. 47 "Truly I say to you that he R928 will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 "But if that evil slave says in his heart, `My master F544 is F545 not coming for a long time,' 49 and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; 50 the master F546 of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, 51 and will cut F547 him in pieces and assign F548 him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping R929 and gnashing of teeth.
