CHAPTER 21
1And he beheld, and saw the rich men, that cast their gifts into the treasury;
2but he saw also a little poor widow casting two farthings [or two little moneys].
3And he said, Truly I say to you, that this poor widow cast more than all men.
4For why all these of [the] thing that was plenteous [or abundant] to them cast in to the gifts of God; but this widow of that thing that failed to her, cast all her livelode [or all her lifelode], that she had.
5And when some men said of the temple, that it was appareled [or adorned] with good stones and gifts, he said,
6These things that ye see, days shall come, in which a stone shall not be left on a stone, which shall not be destroyed.
7And they asked him, and said, Commander, when shall these things be? and what token shall be, when they shall begin to be done?
8And he said, See ye, that ye be not deceived; for many shall come in my name, saying, For I am, and the time shall nigh; therefore do not ye go after them.
9And when ye shall hear battles and strives [or dissensions] within, do not ye be afeared; it behooveth first these things to be done, but not yet anon is an end [or the end].
10Then he said to them, Folk shall rise against folk, and realm against realm;
11and great movings of the earth shall be by places, and pestilences, and hungers, and dreads from heaven, and great tokens shall be.
12But before all these things they shall set their hands on you, and shall pursue you, betaking into synagogues and keepings, [either prisons], and drawing you to kings and to justices, for my name;
13but it shall fall to you into witnessing.
14Therefore put ye in your hearts, not to think before, how ye shall answer;
15for I shall give to you mouth and wisdom, to which all your adversaries shall not be able to against-stand, and gainsay.
16And ye shall be taken [or betrayed] of father, and mother, and brethren, and cousins, and friends, and by death they shall torment [some] of you;
17and ye shall be in hate to [or be hated of] all men for my name.
18And an hair of your head shall not perish;
19in your patience ye shall wield your souls.
20But when ye shall see Jerusalem be environed with an host [of battle], then know ye, that the desolation of it shall nigh.
21Then they that be in Judea, flee to the mountains; and they that be in the middle of it, go away; and they that be in the countries, enter not into it.
22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things that be written, be fulfilled.
23And woe to them, that be with child, and nourishing [or nursing] in those days; for a great dis-ease [or pressure] shall be on the earth, and wrath to this people.
24And they shall fall by the sharpness of sword, and they shall be led prisoners [or led captive] into all folks; and Jerusalem shall be defouled of heathen men, till the times of nations be fulfilled.
25And tokens shall be in the sun, and the moon, and in the stars; and in the earth overlaying of folks, for confusion of the sound of the sea and of floods [or of waves];
26for men shall wax dry for dread and abiding, that shall come into [or on] all the world; for virtues of heaven shall be moved.
27And then they shall see man’s Son coming in a cloud, with great power and majesty.
28And when these things begin to be made [or beginning to be done], behold ye, and raise ye your heads, for your redemption nigheth.
29And he said to them a likeness, See ye the fig tree, and all trees,
30when they bring forth now of themselves fruit, ye know that summer is nigh;
31so [also] ye, when ye see these things to be done, know ye, that the kingdom of God is nigh.
32Truly I say to you, that this generation shall not pass, till all things be done.
33Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words shall not pass.
34But take ye heed to yourselves, lest peradventure your hearts be grieved with gluttony, and drunken-ness, and busynesses of this life, and that day come suddenly on you;
35for as a snare it shall come on all men, that sit on the face of all the earth.
36Therefore wake ye, praying in each time, that ye be had worthy to flee all these things that be to come [or that shall come], and to stand before man’s Son.
37And in days he was teaching in the temple, but in nights he went out, and dwelled in the mount, that is called of Olivet.
38And all the people rose [or came] early, to come to him in the temple, for to hear him.
