Mark Chapter 13
1 And as he went out of the templeone of his disciples saithunto himMastersee what manner of stones and what buildingsare here
2 And Jesus answering said unto himSeest thou these greatbuildingsthere shall not be left one stone upon anotherthat shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against thetemplePeter and James and John and Andrew asked himprivately
4 Tell uswhen shall these things beand what shall be thesign when all these things shall be fulfilled
5 And Jesus answering them began to sayTake heed lest any mandeceive you
6 For many shall come in my namesayingI am Christand shalldeceive many.
7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of warsbe ye nottroubledfor such things must needs bebut the end shall notbe yet.
8 For nation shall rise against nationand kingdom againstkingdomand there shall be earthquakes in divers placesandthere shall be famines and troublesthese are the beginningsof sorrows.
9 But take heed to yourselvesfor they shall deliver you up tocouncilsand in the synagogues ye shall be beatenand yeshall be brought before rulers and kings for my sakefor atestimony against them.
10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
11 But when they shall lead youand deliver you uptake nothought beforehand what ye shall speakneither do yepremeditatebut whatsoever shall be given you in that hour that speak yefor it is not ye that speakbut the HolyGhost.
12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to deathand thefather the sonand children shall rise up against theirparentsand shall cause them to be put to death.
13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name s sakebut hethat shall endure unto the endthe same shall be saved.
14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolationspoken ofby Daniel the prophetstanding where it ought not let himthat readeth understand then let them that be in Judaea fleeto the mountains
15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into thehouseneither enter thereinto take any thing out of hishouse
16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for totake up his garment.
17 But woe to them that are with childand to them that givesuck in those days
18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
19 For in those days shall be afflictionsuch as was not fromthe beginning of the creation which God created unto thistimeneither shall be.
20 And except that the Lord had shortened those daysno fleshshould be savedbut for the elect s sakewhom he hathchosenhe hath shortened the days.
21 And then if any man shall say to youLohere is Christor lohe is therebelieve him not
22 For false Christs and false prophets shall riseand shallshew signs and wondersto seduceif it were possibleeventhe elect.
23 But take ye heedbeholdI have foretold you all things.
24 But in those daysafter that tribulationthe sun shall bedarkenedand the moon shall not give her light
25 And the stars of heaven shall falland the powers that are inheaven shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the cloudswith great power and glory.
27 And then shall he send his angelsand shall gather togetherhis elect from the four windsfrom the uttermost part of theearth to the uttermost part of heaven.
28 Now learn a parable of the fig treeWhen her branch is yettenderand putteth forth leavesye know that summer is near
29 So ye in like mannerwhen ye shall see these things come topassknow that it is nigheven at the doors.
30 Verily I say unto youthat this generation shall not passtill all these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass awaybut my words shall not passaway.
32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no mannonot theangels which are in heavenneither the Sonbut the Father.
33 Take ye heedwatch and prayfor ye know not when the timeis.
34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journeywho lefthis houseand gave authority to his servantsand to everyman his workand commanded the porter to watch.
35 Watch ye thereforefor ye know not when the master of thehouse comethat evenor at midnightor at the cockcrowingor in the morning
36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
37 And what I say unto you I say unto allWatch.
