preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
When ye, therefore, shall see the abomi- . nation of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand,)
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compagsed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
But'woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days !
But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath-day :
For then should be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created, unto this time, neither shall bę.
For there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon the people.
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down
of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

But take ye heed : behold, I have foretold you all things.
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.
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth : for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of hea. ven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet; and they shall gather together his elect from the four, winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift
; for your redemption draweth nigh.
And he spake to them a parable ; Behold, the fig-tree, and all the trees;
When they now shoot forth, see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away till all be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away ; but my words shall not pass away.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Take ye heed, watch and pray:
ye know not when the time is.
For the son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore; for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning;
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would comé, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be bro
Therefore be ye also ready : for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season ?
Blessed is that servant whom his lord, when he cometh, shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you,
That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites : there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
