Berean Bible



1 And of Him going forth out of the temple, one of His disciples says to Him, “Teacher, behold what stones and what buildings!” 2 And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left here upon a stone, which shall not be thrown down.” 3 And of Him sitting upon the Mount of Olives, opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him in private, 4 “Tell us when these things will be, and what will be the sign when all these things are going to be accomplished?” 5 And Jesus began to say to them, “Take heed, lest anyone mislead you. 6 Many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and they will mislead many. 7 And when you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be disturbed. It must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 8 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. 9 But you take heed to yourselves. They will betray you to courts, and you will be beaten in synagogues; and you will stand before governors and kings because of Me, for a testimony to them. 10 And the gospel it behooves first to proclaim to all the nations. 11 But when they might lead you away, delivering you up, do not be anxious beforehand what you should say; but whatever might be given to you in that hour, speak that. For you are not those speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 12 And brother will deliver up brother to death, and father, child; and children will rise up against parents, and will put them to death. 13 And you will be hated by all on account of My name; but the one having endured to the end, he will be saved. 14 And when you see the abomination of the desolation, standing where it should not (the one reading, let him understand), then those in Judea, let them flee to the mountains; 15 and the one upon the housetop, let him not come down nor go in to take anything out of his house; 16 and the one in the field, let him not return to the things behind to take his clothing. 17 And woe to those having in womb and to the ones nursing infants in those days! 18 And pray that it might not be in winter, 19 for in those days will be tribulation, the like such as never has been from the beginning of creation which God created until now—and never shall be. 20 And if the Lord had not shortened the days, not any flesh would have been saved; but on account of the elect whom He chose, He has shortened the days. 21 And then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ! Behold, there!’ you shall not believe it. 22 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, the elect. 23 But you take heed; I have foretold to you all things. 24 But in those days, those after the tribulation, ‘The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25 and the stars will be falling out of the heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.’ 26 And then will they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then He will send the angels and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the end of earth to the end of heaven. 28 And learn the parable of the fig tree: When its branch already has become tender, and it puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 29 So also you, when you see these things coming to pass, know that He is near, at the doors. 30 Truly I say to you that this generation will not have passed away until all these things shall have taken place. 31 The heaven and the earth will pass away, but My words will certainly not pass away. 32 And concerning that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Take heed; watch; for you do not know when the time is. 34 It is like a man going on a journey, having left his house, and having given his servants authority, to each one his work. And he commanded the doorkeeper that he should keep watch. 35 Therefore watch—for you do not know when the master of the house comes: either at evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or morning— 36 lest having come suddenly, he should find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”
