Mark 13

And as Jesus retired from the temple, one of his disciples said to him: Teacher; behold; see these stones, and these structures! And Jesus said to him: Admirest thou these great structures? There will not be left here one stone upon another, not demolished. And as Jesus was sitting on the mount of Olives, over against the temple, Cephas and James and John and Andrew asked him, privately: Tell us, when will these things be? and what will be the sign that these things approach their consummation? And Jesus began to say to them Beware, that no one mislead you: for many will come in my name, and will say: I am he. And they will mislead many. But when ye shall hear of battles, and the rumor of battles, be not afraid; for this must be; but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in several places, and there will be famines and insurrections. These are the beginning of sorrows. And take heed to yourselves; for they will deliver you up to the tribunals; and ye will be beaten in the synagogues, and ye will stand before kings and governors, on my account, for a testimony to them. 10 And my tidings must first be proclaimed among all the nations. 11 And when they shall lead you to deliver you up, be not solicitous beforehand what ye shall say, neither premeditate; but, that which shall be given you in that hour, speak ye; for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 And brother will deliver up his brother to death, and the father his son; and children will rise up against their parents, and will kill them. 13 And ye will be hated of every man, on account of my name. But whoever shall persevere to the end, shall live. 14 And when ye see the profane sign of desolation, which was mentioned by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not; (let him that readeth, understand;) then let those that are in Judaea, flee to the mountain: 15 and let him that is on the roof, not come down and enter it, to take any thing from his house: 16 and let him that is in the field, not return back to take his clothing. 17 But, woe to those with child, and to those who nurse children, in those days! 18 And pray ye, that your flight be not in winter. 19 For in those days will be affliction, such as hath not been from the beginning of the creation that God made until now, and shall not be. 20 And, unless God should shorten those days, no flesh would live. But, on account of the elect whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened those days. 21 Then, if any one shall say to you: Lo, here is Messiah, or lo, there; give not credence. 22 For false Messiahs will arise, and lying prophets; and they will give signs and wonders; and will deceive, if possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed. Lo, I have told you the whole beforehand. 24 And in those days, after that affliction, the sun will be darkened; and the moon will not give her light; 25 and the stars will fall from heaven; and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 26 And then will they see the Son of man coming in the clouds, with great power and glory. 27 And then will he send forth his angels, and will assemble his elect from the four winds, from the extremity of earth to the extremity of heaven. 28 And, from the fig-tree learn ye a simile. When its twigs are tender, and its leaves bud forth, ye know that summer approacheth. 29 So also, when ye shall see these occurrences, know ye, that it is near, at the door. 30 Verily I say to you, That this generation shall not pass away, until all these things occur. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour, knoweth no man; nor the angels of heaven; neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take heed, watch, and pray; for ye know not when the time is. 34 For it is as a man, who took a journey, and left his home; and he gave authority to his servants, and to each his service; and he commanded the porter to be watchful. 35 Watch ye, therefore; for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh; at evening, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning: 36 lest he come suddenly, and find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to you all: Be ye watchful.
