Matthew 24

Whiston(i) 1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple, and his disciples came to [him], to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And he answered and said unto them, See ye all these things? verily I say unto you, that ther shall not be left here stone upon stone, that shall not be utterly thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the age? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man may deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ: and deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars, and rumours of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for it must come to pass, but the end [is] not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places. 8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will wax cold. 13 But he that shall have endured unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to all the world, for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come. 15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him mind it. 16 Then let those in Judea, flee unto the mountains. 17 But let him who is on the house-top, not come down to take any thing out of the house: 18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his garment. 19 And wo unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath-day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, nor may they ever be again. 22 And except those days should be shortned, there shall no flesh escape: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortned. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ, or there: ye shall not believe [it]. 24 For there will be raised false Christs, and false prophets, and will shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that if possible the very elect should be deceived. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore, if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert, go not forth: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers, believe [it] not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth unto the west: so shall the coming of the Son of man be. 28 Wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles also be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall the sunbe darkned, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man who is in the heavens, and then shall all the tribes of the land mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming upon the clouds of heaven, with great power and glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a trumpet, of a great sound and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. And when these things begin to come to pass, Look up, and lift up your heads for your redemption draweth nigh. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig-tree: When its branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no one, no, not the Angels of the heavens, neither the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, both marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noe entered into the ark. 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field, the one is taken, and the other left. 41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill, the one is taken, and the other left. Two shall be upon one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other left: 42 Watch therefore, for ye know not what day the Lord cometh. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of man cometh. 45 For who is a faithful and wise servant, whom the Lord hath made ruler over his houshold, to give them meat in season? 46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh, shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, that he shall set him over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth to come. 49 And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and shall eat and drink with the drunken. 50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he knoweth not. 51 And shall cut him in sunder, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
