New Testament

 The Destruction of the Temple Foretold 

Matthew 24

And coming out Iēsous departed from the temple and his disciples came to him to point out to him the buildings of the temple. 2 And answering he said to them: Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you there will not be left here a stone upon a stone that will not be thrown down.

 The Beginning of Woes 

3 And when he sat upon the Mount of Olives the disciples came to him privately saying: Tell us when will these things be? And what are the signs of your coming and the completiona of the ageb? 4 And answering Iēsous said to them: Be seeing that no one deceive you. 5 For many will come on my name saying: I am the Christ, and many will be deceived. 6 But you will hear of wars and the rumor of wars. See that you are not being troubledc, for these things must come to pass, but not yet is the endd. 7 For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in diverse places. 8 All these things are the beginning of birth-pangs.

9 Then they will give you over to affliction and they will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations because of my name. 10 And then many will be stumblede and they will betray each other and will hate each other. 11 And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness shall abound, the agapē-love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one having endured to the endd, this one will be savedf. 14 And this good-newsg of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a witnessh to all the nations, and then will the endd come.

 The Great Tribulation 

15 When therefore you see the abominationi of desolationj, the thing said through Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, the one who reads, letk him understand, 16 then those in Ioudaia, letk them flee to the mountains. 17 The one on the roof, letk him not come down to take anything out of his house, 18 and the one in the field, letk him not turn back to take his clothes, 19 but woe to those having [a child] in the belly and those nursing in those days. 20 But be praying in order that your flight not come to pass in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then will there be great afflictionsl such as have not come to pass from the beginning of the world until now nor everm will. 22 And if those days were not shortened, no fleshn would be savedf, but because of the choseno those days will be shortened. 23 Then if any say to you: Behold here is the Christ, or: There, do not believe him. 24 For false christs and false prophets shall rise and shall give great signsp and wondersq, so as to deceive, if possible, even the choseno. 25 Behold I have forewarned you. 26 If therefore they say to you: Behold he is in the desertr, do not go. Behold he is in the inner room, do not believe. 27 For as the lightning comes out from the east and shines to the west, thus is the coming of the son of humanitys. 28 Where the carcass is, there will be gathered the vultures.

 The Coming of the Son of Humanity 

29 But immediately after the affliction of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its radiancet, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 And then will appearu the signp of the son of humanitys in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will hide and will see the son of humanitys coming on the clouds of heaven with powerv and great gloryw. 31 And he will send his angels with great trumpet-calls, and they will gather his choseno from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

 The Lesson of the Fig Tree 

32 Learn from the fig tree the parable: When its branches already become tender and the leaves put forth, you know that summer is near. 33 Thus you also when you see all these things, you will know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Truly I say to you that this generation shall notm pass away until all these things come to pass. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my wordsx will notm pass away.

 The Unknown Day and Hour 

36 Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, not even the angels of the heavens, nor the sonA, except the father only. 37 For as the days of Noah, thus will be the coming of the son of humanitys. 38 For as they were in those days before the deluge eatingy and drinking, marryingz and being given in marriageaa until which day Noah entered into the ark, 39 and they did not know until the deluge came and took them all, thus also will be the coming of the son of humanitys. 40 Then will two be in the field, one is taken and one is left. 41 Two are grinding in the mill, one is taken and one left.

42 Be watching therefore, for you know not what day your lord comes. 43 But this you know that if the master-of-the-houseab knew in which watch the thief comes, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 For this reason you also become ready, for in which hour you do not suppose, the son of humanitys comes.

 The Faithful or Unfaithful Servant 

45 Who therefore is the trustworthyac and shrewdad slave whom the lord appointed over his household to give them foodae at the proper-timeaf? 46 Blessed is that slave who when his lord comes he will find thus doing. 47 Truly I say to you that he will appoint him over all his possessionsag. 48 But if that evilah slave should say in his heart: My lord delays, 49 and begins to be beating his fellow-slaves, eating and drinking with the drunks, 50 the lord of that slave will come in an hour which he knows not, 51 and he will cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There will there be sobbingai and grindingaj of teeth.
