he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more
than they all:
4For all these have of their
abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
5And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts,
6As for these things which ye behold,
the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
7And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign
will there be when these things shall come to pass?
he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near:
go ye not therefore after them.
ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and
10Then said he unto them, Nation shall
rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there
be from heaven.
12But before all these, they
shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before
kings and rulers for my name's sake.
it shall turn to you for a testimony.
it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor
16And ye shall be betrayed both by
parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
18But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
19In your patience possess ye your souls.
20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation
thereof is nigh.
21Then let them which are
in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries
22For these be the days of
vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land,
and wrath upon this people.
24And they shall
fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the
Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;
the sea and the waves roaring;
failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be
27And then shall they see the Son
of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
29And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is
now nigh at hand.
31So likewise ye, when ye
see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
32Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with
surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole
36Watch ye therefore, and pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
37And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out,
and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.
