King James VersionMatthew24


1 And Je­sus went out, and de­part­ed from the tem­ple: and his dis­ci­ples came to him for to shew him the build­ings of the tem­ple. 2 And Je­sus said unto them, See ye not all these things? ver­i­ly I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon an­oth­er, that shall not be 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 shall be the sign of thy com­ing, and of the end of the world? 4 And Je­sus an­swered and said unto them, Take heed that no man de­ceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, say­ing, I am Christ; and shall de­ceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and ru­mours of wars: see that ye be not trou­bled: for all these things 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 pesti­lences, and earth­quakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the be­gin­ning of sor­rows. 9 Then shall they de­liv­er you up to be af­flict­ed, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hat­ed of all na­tions for my name's 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 shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall en­dure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the king­dom shall be preached in 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 un­der­stand:) 16 Then let them which be in Ju­daea flee into the moun­tains: 17 Let him which is on the house­top not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Nei­ther let him which is in the field re­turn back to take his clothes. 19 And woe 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, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And ex­cept those days should be short­ened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be short­ened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; be­lieve it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and won­ders; in­so­much that, if it were pos­si­ble, they shall de­ceive the very elect. 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 even unto the west; so shall also the com­ing of the Son of man be. 28 For where­so­ev­er the car­case is, there will the ea­gles be gath­ered to­geth­er. 29 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 the pow­ers of the heav­ens shall be shak­en: 30 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 heav­en with pow­er and great glo­ry. 31 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. 32 Now learn a para­ble of the fig tree; When his 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, even at the doors. 34 Ver­i­ly I say unto you, 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 man, no, not the an­gels of heav­en, but my Fa­ther on­ly. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the com­ing of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were be­fore the flood they were eat­ing and drink­ing, mar­ry­ing and giv­ing in mar­riage, un­til the day that Noe en­tered into the ark, 39 And knew not un­til the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the com­ing of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be tak­en, and the oth­er left. 41 Two ­wom­en shall be grind­ing at the mill; the one shall be tak­en, and the oth­er left. 42 Watch there­fore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the good­man 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 ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faith­ful and wise ser­vant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his house­hold, to give them meat in due 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 make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil ser­vant shall say in his heart, My lord de­layeth his com­ing; 49 And shall be­gin to smite his fel­lowser­vants, and to 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 is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asun­der, and ap­point him his por­tion with the hyp­ocrites: there shall be weep­ing and gnash­ing of teeth.
