Chapter 21Luke

21

1 And he looked up, and saw the rich casting their :gifts into the treasury. 2 And he saw a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. 3 And he said, I tell you truly that this :poor :widow cast in more than they all: 4 for all these did of their :superfluity cast in unto the gifts; but SHE of her :want cast in all the living that she had.
 
5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and offerings, he said, 6 As for these which ye behold, days will come, in which there shall not be left here stone upon stone that shall not be thrown down. 7 And they asked him, saying, Teacher, when therefore shall these be? and what shall be the sign when these are about to come to pass? 8 And he said, See ye be not led astray: for many shall come in my :name, saying, I am he; and, The season is near; go ye not after them. 9 And when ye shall hear of wars and tumults, be not terrified: for these must needs come to pass first; but the end is not immediately.
 
10 Then said he to them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11 and great earthquakes shall be, and in diverse places famines and pestilences; and terrors shall be and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all these, they shall lay their :hands on you, and persecute, delivering you up into the synagogues and prisons, you being brought before kings and governors for my :name’s sake. 13 It shall turn out to you for a testimony. 14 Settle it therefore in your :hearts, not to meditate beforehand how to answer: 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your :adversaries shall not be able to withstand or gainsay. 16 But ye shall be delivered up even by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolk, and friends; and some of you shall they put to death. 17 And ye shall be hated of all because of my name. 18 And not a hair of your :head shall perish. 19 In your :patience ye shall win your :souls. 20 But when ye should see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that her :desolation is nigh. 21 Then let them in :Judæa flee unto the mountains; and let them in the midst of her depart; and let not them that are in the countries enter therein. 22 For these are days of vengeance, for the fulfilling of all the things written. 23 Woe to the pregnant and the suck-giving in those :days! for great distress shall be upon the land, and wrath to this :people. 24 And they shall fall by the sword’s edge, and shall be led captive into all the nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the nations until the seasons of the nations (and they shall be) are fulfilled. 25 And signs shall be in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of sea and billow; 26 men †fainting for fear, and expectation of the things coming on the inhabited earth; for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of :man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your :heads; because your :redemption draweth nigh. 29 And he spake to them a parable: see the fig tree, and all the trees: 30 when they now shoot forth, ye see it and know of yourselves that :summer is now nigh. 31 Thus ye also, when ye should see these things coming to pass, know that the kingdom of :God is nigh. 32 Amen I say unto you that this :race shall not pass away, till all be accomplished. 33 The heaven and the earth shall pass away: but my :words shall not pass away. 34 But take heed to yourselves, lest haply your :hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and life’s cares, and that :day come upon you suddenly as a snare: 35 for so shall it come upon all that dwell on the face of all the earth. 36 But watch at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of :man.
 
37 And every :day he was teaching in the temple; and every :night he went out, and lodged in the mount that is called Olivet. 38 And the whole people came early in the morning unto him in the temple, to hear him.
