Luke 21


The Widow's Offering

1And looking up he beheld [2throwing 3their gifts 4into 5the 6treasury 1the rich]. 2And he beheld a certain [2widow 1destitute] throwing there two leptas. 3And he said, Truly I say to you that [3widow 2poor 1this 5more than 6all 4threw in]. 4For all these from out of their abundance threw in the gifts for God; but she from out of her deficiency [2all 3the 4livelihood 5which 6she had 1threw].

Jesus Foretells Concerning the End

5And as some were speaking concerning the temple, that with [2stones 1goodly] and consecrated offerings it was adorned, he said, 6As to these things which you view, there shall come days in which [2shall not be left 1a stone] upon a stone, which shall not be broken up. 7And they asked him, saying, Teacher, when then will these things be, and what is the sign whenever these things are about to take place? 8And he said, Take heed that you should not be misled! For many shall come in my name, saying that, I am he, and saying, The time approaches. [2not 3then 1You should] go after them. 9And whenever you should hear of wars and commotions, you should not be terrified. For it is necessary these things take place first; but not immediately is the end. 10Then he said to them, [2shall rise 1Nation] against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11[3earthquakes 1also 2great] in places; and [2famines 3and 4pestilences 1shall be there]; [2fearful things 1also], and [3signs 4from 5heaven 2great 1there will be]. 12But before these things all together, they shall put [2upon 3you 1their hands], and shall persecute you, and deliver you up unto synagogues, and prisons, leading you unto kings and governors because of my name. 13But it shall result to you for a testimony. 14Then you put it into your hearts not to meditate beforehand to make a defense! 15For I shall give to you a mouth and wisdom, in which [5will not be able 6to contradict 7nor 8oppose 1all 2the ones 3being adverse 4to you]. 16But you will be delivered up even by parents, and brethren, and relatives, and friends; and they shall put to death some of you. 17And you will be detested by all on account of my name. 18But a hair from your head in no way shall perish. 19By your endurance acquire your life! 20And whenever you should behold [2being encircled 3by 4encamped armies 1Jerusalem], then know that [2approaches 1her desolation]. 21Then let the ones in Judea flee into the mountains! And let the ones in the midst of her withdraw! And let the ones in the regions not enter into her! 22For [3days 4of avenging 1these 2are] to fulfill all the things having been written. 23But woe to the ones [2in 3the womb 1having one], and to the ones nursing in those days. For there will be [2distress 1great] upon the land, and wrath among this people. 24And they shall fall by the mouth of the sword, and shall be taken captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be for treading by nations until [3shall be fulfilled 1the times 2of the nations]. 25And there shall be signs among the sun, and moon, and stars; and upon the earth conflict of nations, in perplexity of resounding sea and tossing about; 26[2fainting 1men] from fear and expectation of the things coming to the inhabitable world; for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 27And then they shall see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and [2glory 1much]. 28But at the beginning of these things to come to pass, let [2be raised 3and 4lifted up 1your heads], because [2approaches 1your release by ransom]!

The Parable of the Fig-tree

29And he spoke a parable to them, Look at the fig-tree, and all the trees! 30Whenever they should burgeon already, seeing it yourselves, you know that already [4near 1the 2summer 3is]! 31Thus also you, whenever you should see these things taking place, know that [4is near 1the 2kingdom 3of God]! 32Amen I say to you, that in no way shall [3pass away 2generation 1this], until whenever all shall take place. 33The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words in no way shall pass away. 34But take heed to yourselves! lest at any time [3should be weighed down 1your 2hearts] in dizziness, and intoxication, and anxieties of life; and in a sudden [3upon 4you 2should stand 1that day]. 35[2as 3a snare 1For] it shall come upon all the ones being settled upon the face of all the earth. 36Be awake then at every season! beseeching, that you should be deemed worthy to flee from all the things being about to take place, and to stand before the son of man. 37And he was by days in the temple teaching, and by nights coming forth to lodge in the mountain being called, Olives. 38And all the people rose early to him in the temple, to hear him.
