Mark, Chapter 13

13:1 And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, look, what manner of stones and what manner of buildings!
13:2 And Jesus said to him, Do you see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone on another, which will not be thrown down.
13:3 And as he sat on the mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
13:4 Tell us, when will these things be? And what [will be] the sign when these things are all about to be accomplished?
13:5 And Jesus began to say to them, Take heed that no man leads you+ astray.
13:6 Many will come in my name, saying, I am [he]; and will lead many astray.
13:7 And when you+ will hear of wars and rumors of wars, don't be troubled: [these things] must surely come to pass; but the end is not yet.
13:8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in diverse places; there will be famines: these things are the beginning of travail.
13:9 But you+ take heed to yourselves. They will deliver you+ up to Sanhedrins; and in synagogues you+ will be beaten; and before governors and kings you+ will stand for my sake, for a testimony to them.
13:10 And the good news must first be preached to all the nations.
13:11 And when they lead you+ [to judgment], and deliver you+ up, don't be anxious beforehand what you+ will speak: but whatever will be given you+ in that hour, that speak+; for it is not you+ who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
13:12 And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death.
13:13 And you+ will be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.
13:14 But when you+ see the detestable thing of desolation standing where it ought not (let him who reads understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains:
13:15 and let him who is on the housetop not go down, nor enter in, to take anything out of his house:
13:16 and let him who is in the field not return back to take his cloak.
13:17 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who nurse in those days!
13:18 And pray+ that it is not in the winter.
13:19 For those days will be tribulation, such as there has not been the like from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will be.
13:20 And except Yahweh had shortened the days, no flesh would have been saved; but for the elect's sake, whom he chose, he shortened the days.
13:21 And then if any man will say to you+, Look, here is the Christ; or, Look, there; don't believe [it]:
13:22 for there will arise false Christs and false prophets, and will show signs and wonders, that they may lead astray, if possible, the elect.
13:23 But take+ heed: I have told you+ all things beforehand.
13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light,
13:25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
13:26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
13:27 And then he will send forth the angels, and will gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
13:28 Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch has now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you+ know that the summer is near;
13:29 even so you+ also, when you+ see these things coming to pass, know+ that it is near, [even] at the doors.
13:30 Truly I say to you+, This generation will not pass away, until all these things be accomplished.
13:31 Heaven and earth will pass away: but my words will definitely not pass away.
13:32 But of that day or that hour knows no one, not even the angels in heaven nor even the Son, but the Father.
13:33 Take+ heed, watch+: for you+ don't know when the time is.
13:34 [It is] as [when] a man, sojourning in another country, having left his house, and given authority to his slaves, to each one his work, commanded also the porter to watch.
13:35 Watch therefore: for you+ don't know when the lord of the house comes, whether at evening, or at midnight, or at rooster crowing, or in the morning;
13:36 lest coming suddenly he find you+ sleeping.
13:37 And what I say to you+ I say to all, Watch.
