Luke 21
1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in there two mites.
3And he said, Of a tI say unto you, that this poor widow has cast in more than they all:
4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God-Theos: but she of her poverty has cast in all the living that she had.
5And as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
6 [As for] these things which you2f 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?
8And he said, Take heed that you2f be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am [Moshiach [Messiah]]; and the time draws near: go you2f not therefore after them.
9But when you2f shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end [is] not by and by.
10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
11And great earthquakes shall be in different 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.
13And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what you2f shall answer:
15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to contradict (oppose) nor resist.
16And you2f shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and relatives, and friends; and [some] of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17And you2f 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 you2f your souls.
20And when you2f shall see Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is near.
21Then let them which are in Y’hudah [praised] 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 enter thereinto.
22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23But 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 Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] shall be trampled down of the Goyim [Gentiles], until the times of the Goyim [Gentiles] be fulfilled.
25And 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;
26Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.
29And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30When they now shoot forth, you2f see and know of your own selves that summer is now near at hand.
31So likewise you2f, when you2f see these things come to pass, know you2f that the kingdom of God-Theos is near at hand.
32Truly 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 burdened (weighed down) with overindulgence (excess food or drink), 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 earth.
36Watch you2f therefore, and pray always, that you2f 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.
38And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.
