And Jesus said unto them, aSee
ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one bstone

and rumours of wars: see that ye be not btroubled
: for all these things
must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be bfamines
, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are
the beginning of asorrows
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall akill
you: and ye shall be bhated
of all nations cfor
my name’s sake.
And then shall many be aoffended
, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many afalse

shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the cend
When ye therefore shall see the aabomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the bholy

into the mountains:
Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

For then shall be great atribulation
, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those adays
shall be shortened.
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is
Christ, or there; abelieve it
For there shall arise afalse bChrists
, and cfalse
prophets, and shall shew great dsigns
and wonders; insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall edeceive

Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is
in the asecret
chambers; believe it
For as the alightning
cometh out of the beast
, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be agathered
¶ Immediately after the tribulation of those adays
shall the bsun
, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the asign
of the Son of man in bheaven
: and then shall all the tribes of the earth cmourn
, and they shall see the dSon
of man coming in the clouds of heaven with epower
and great fglory
And he shall send his aangels
with a great sound of a btrumpet
, and they shall gather together his celect
from the four winds, from one end of dheaven
to the other.
Now learn a parable of the afig
tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that ait
is near, even
at the bdoors
Heaven and earth shall apass
away, but my bwords
shall not cpass
¶ But of that aday
knoweth no man,

But as the days of aNoe were,
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the aflood
they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord adelayeth

And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
