Matthew Chapter 24
1 And Jesus went outand departed from the templeand hisdisciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of thetemple.
2 And Jesus said unto themSee ye not all these thingsverilyI say unto youThere shall not be left here one stone uponanotherthat shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olivesthe disciples cameunto him privatelysayingTell uswhen shall these thingsbeand what shall be the sign of thy comingand of the endof the world
4 And Jesus answered and said unto themTake heed that no mandeceive you.
5 For many shall come in my namesayingI am Christand shalldeceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of warssee that ye benot troubledfor all these things must come to passbut theend is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nationand kingdom againstkingdomand there shall be faminesand pestilencesandearthquakesin divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflictedand shall killyouand ye shall be hated of all nations for my name s sake.
10 And then shall many be offendedand shall betray one anotherand shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall riseand shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall aboundthe love of many shall waxcold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the endthe same shall besaved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all theworld for a witness unto all nationsand then shall the endcome.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolationspoken of by Daniel the prophetstand in the holy place whoso readethlet him understand
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take hisclothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with childand to them that givesuck in those days
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winterneither onthe sabbath day
21 For then shall be great tribulationsuch as was not since thebeginning of the world to this timenonor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortenedthere should noflesh be savedbut for the elect s sake those days shall beshortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto youLohere is Christortherebelieve it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christsand false prophetsandshall shew great signs and wondersinsomuch thatif it werepossiblethey shall deceive the very elect.
25 BeholdI have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto youBeholdhe is in thedesertgo not forthbeholdhe is in the secret chambers believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the eastand shineth evenunto the westso shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase isthere will the eagles begathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sunbe darkenedand the moon shall not give her lightand thestars shall fall from heavenand the powers of the heavensshall be shaken
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heavenand then shall all the tribes of the earth mournand theyshall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven withpower and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig treeWhen his branch is yettenderand putteth forth leavesye know that summer is nigh
33 So likewise yewhen ye shall see all these thingsknow thatit is neareven at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto youThis generation shall not passtillall these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass awaybut my words shall not passaway.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no mannonot the angels ofheavenbut my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe wereso shall also the coming of theSon of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eatingand drinkingmarrying and giving in marriageuntil the daythat Noe entered into the ark
39 And knew not until the flood cameand took them all awaysoshall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the fieldthe one shall be takenandthe other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the millthe one shall betakenand the other left.
42 Watch thereforefor ye know not what hour your Lord dothcome.
43 But know thisthat if the goodman of the house had known inwhat watch the thief would comehe would have watchedandwould not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also readyfor in such an hour as ye thinknot the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servantwhom his lord hathmade ruler over his householdto give them meat in dueseason
46 Blessed is that servantwhom his lord when he cometh shallfind so doing.
47 Verily I say unto youThat he shall make him ruler over allhis goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heartMy lorddelayeth his coming
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservantsand to eat anddrink with the drunken
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he lookethnot for himand in an hour that he is not aware of
51 And shall cut him asunderand appoint him his portion withthe hypocritesthere shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
