1And as Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was going out from the Beis HaMikdash, one of his talmidim says to him, Hinei! Rebbe, what large stones and impressive binyanim (buildings)! 2And Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach said to him, Do you see these great binyanim? Not one even (stone) will be left resting on another even (stone). All will be thrown down! 3And Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the Beis HaMikdash having a yechidus (private meeting) with Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan and Andrew. 4Tell us when these things will be and what [will be] the ot (sign) when all these things are about to be consummated? 5And Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach began to say to them, Beware lest anyone deceive you. 6For many will come in my name [i.e., arrogating my title and authority as Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach] saying I am [here]. And they will deceive many. [YIRMEYAH 29:8] 7But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled. It is necessary for these things to occur, but it is not yet HaKetz (the End [of the OlamHazeh]). 8For there will be an intifada of ethnic group against ethnic group and malchut against malchut, there will be earthquakes in place after place, [and] there will be famines. These things are but the beginning of the Chevlei [Moshiach]. 9But as for yourselves, take heed and be careful. For they will hand you over to the sanhedrin and in the shuls you will be beaten and before moshlim (governors) and melachim (kings) you will take your stand for the sake of me [Moshiach] as a solemn edut (testimony) to them. 10And it is necessary that the Besuras HaGeulah first be proclaimed to all nations. 11And when they arraign you and hand you over for trial, do not be worried beforehand about what you might say; but whatever is given to you in that hour, this you shall say, for it is not you yourselves who are the ones speaking, but the Ruach Hakodesh. 12And ach will hand over ach to mavet, and Av [his] own yeled, and yeladim will rise up against horim (parents) and cause them to be condemned with onesh mavet (the death penalty). [MICHOH 7:6] 13And everyone will hate you with sinas chinom (baseless hatred) because of my Name [Yehoshua, Yeshua]. But the one having endured to HaKetz, this one will receive Yeshuat Eloheinu. 14And when you see the SHIKUTS MESHOMEM (the abomination of desolation, the abomination that causes desolation, DANIEL 9:27; 11:31; 12:11) standing where it ought not-- let the one reading this, take heed-- then let the ones in Yehudah flee to the mountains. 15And the one on the roof, let him not come down back inside, and let him not enter his bais to take anything away. 16And the one in the sadeh (field) let him not turn back to get his kaftan. 17And oy to the ones with child and the ones with nursing infants in those days. 18But daven tefillos that it may not occur in khoref (winter). 19For in those days will be Tzarah Gedolah (Great Tribulation) of such a kind as has not happened from [the] Reshit Yedei HaBriah (Beginning of the Days of Creation) which Hashem created until now, and never again will be. [DANIEL 9:26; 12:1; YOEL 2:2] 20And unless Hashem makes those yamim shortened, no one would be delivered in the Yeshuat Eloheinu. But for the sake of the Bechirim, whom Hashem chose, he shortened the yamim. 21And, then, if someone says to you, Hinei! Here [is] the Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach! Hinei! There! do not have emunah in what they say. 22For meshichei sheker (false moshiachs) will arise, and neviei sheker (false prophets), and they will perform otot and moftim so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, the Bechirim. [DEVARIM 13:6,7,11,14] 23But you beware. I have forewarned you concerning all things. 24But after the Tzarah [13:19] of yamim hahem, the shemesh will be darkened, and the levanah will not give its ohr, 25And the kokhavim (stars) will be falling out of Shomayim, and the kochot (powers), the ones in Shomayim, will be shaken. [YESHAYAH 13:10; 34:4; YECHEZKEL 32:7-8; AMOS 8:9; YOEL 3:3f (2:30f)] 26And then you will see the BEN HAADAM BA BAANANIM (the Son of Man [Moshiach] coming in clouds DANIEL 7:13-14) with gevurah rabbah (great power) and kavod (glory). 27And then he will send the malachim and he will gather together his Bechirim [13:20] from the four winds, from the ends (extremities) of haaretz to the ends (extremities) of Shomayim. [ZECHARYAH 2:6] 28And from the etz teenah (fig tree) learn the mashal: when by that time its branch has become tender and it puts forth the leaves, you have daas that Kayitz is near; 29So also you, when you see these things happening, have daas that it is near, at the doors. 30Omein, I say to you that by no means HaDor HaZeh passes away until all these things take place. [Mk 13:24; Mt 27:45] 31Shomayim and haaretz will pass away, but the dvarim of me [Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach] will by no means pass away. [YESHAYAH 40:8] 32But concerning HaYom HaHu or the shaah, no one has daas, neither the malachim in Shomayim nor HaBen, but only HaAv. 33Beware, stay shomer (on guard), for you do not have daas when the time is. 34It is like a man, when departing on a journey and leaving his bais (house) and, having put his avadim (servants) in charge, each with his assigned avodah (work), gives orders to the gatekeeper to be shomer. 35Therefore you be shomer, for you do not have daas when the Baal Bayit comes, either late in the yom or at chatzot halailah or at cockcrow or baboker, 36Lest having come PITOM (suddenly MALACHI 3:1) he finds you sleeping. 37And what I say to you, I say to all, be shomer.
