Luke, Chapter 21

21:1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men who were casting their gifts into the treasury.
21:2 And he saw a certain poor widow casting in there two lepta.
21:3 And he said, Of a truth I say to you+, This poor widow cast in more than all of them:
21:4 for all these of their superfluity cast in to the gifts; but she of her want cast in all the living that she had.
21:5 And as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and offerings, he said,
21:6 As for these things which you+ are looking at, the days will come, in which there will not be left one stone on another, that will not be thrown down.
21:7 And they asked him, saying, Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what [will be] the sign when these things are about to come to pass?
21:8 And he said, Take heed that you+ are not led astray: for many will come in my name, saying, I am [he]; and, The time is at hand: don't go+ after them.
21:9 And when you+ will hear of wars and tumults, don't be terrified: for these things must surely come to pass first; but the end is not immediately.
21:10 Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom;
21:11 and there will be great earthquakes, and in diverse places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
21:12 But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you+, and will persecute you+, delivering you+ up to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you+ before kings and governors for my name's sake.
21:13 It will turn out to you+ for a testimony.
21:14 Settle it therefore in your+ hearts, not to meditate beforehand how to answer:
21:15 for I will give you+ a mouth and wisdom, which all your+ adversaries will not be able to withstand or to gainsay.
21:16 But you+ will be delivered up even by parents, and brothers, and kinsfolk, and friends; and [some] of you+ they will cause to be put to death.
21:17 And you+ will be hated of all men for my name's sake.
21:18 And not a hair of your+ head will perish.
21:19 In your+ patience you+ win your+ souls.
21:20 But when you+ see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that her desolation is at hand.
21:21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let those who are inside her depart out; and don't let those who are in the country enter into her.
21:22 For these are days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
21:23 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who nurse in those days! For there will be great distress on the land, and wrath to this people.
21:24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations: and Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
21:25 And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars; and on the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the billows;
21:26 men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming upon the world: for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
21:27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
21:28 But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your+ heads; because your+ redemption draws near.
21:29 And he spoke to them a parable: Look at the fig tree, and all the trees:
21:30 when they now shoot forth, you+ see it and know of your+ own selves that the summer is now near.
21:31 Even so you+ also, when you+ see these things coming to pass, know+ that the kingdom of God is near.
21:32 Truly I say to you+, This generation will not pass away, until all things be accomplished.
21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away: but my words will not pass away.
21:34 But take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your+ hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come upon you+ suddenly as a snare:
21:35 for [so] it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth.
21:36 But watch+ at every season, making supplication, that you+ may prevail to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
21:37 And every day he was teaching in the temple; and every night he went out, and lodged in the mount that is called of Olives.
21:38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.
