Mark 13
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And as He is going forth out of the temple, one of His disciples says to Him, “Teacher, see! What stones! And what buildings!” 2And Jesus answering said to him, “See these great buildings? There may not be left a stone on a stone that may not be thrown down.”

3And as He is sitting at the Mount of Olives, opposite the temple, Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, were questioning Him by Himself, 4“Tell us when these things will be? And what [is] the sign when all these may be about to be fulfilled?” 5And Jesus answering them, began to say, “Take heed lest anyone may lead you astray, 6for many will come in My Name, saying, I am [He], and many they will lead astray; 7and when you may hear of wars and reports of wars, do not be troubled, for these ought to be, but the end [is] not yet; 8for nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles; these [are the] beginning of travails.

9And take heed to yourselves, for they will deliver you up to Sanhedrins, and to synagogues, you will be beaten, and before governors and kings you will be set for My sake, for a testimony to them;

10and to all the nations it is first necessary that the good news be proclaimed. 11And when they may lead you, delivering up, do not be anxious beforehand what you may speak, nor premeditate, but whatever may be given to you in that hour, that speak, for it is not you who are speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 12And brother will deliver up brother to death, and father child, and children will rise up against parents, and will put them to death, 13and you will be hated by all because of My Name, but he who has endured to the end—he will be saved.

14And when you may see the abomination of the desolation, that was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it should not (whoever is reading let him understand), then those in Judea, let them flee to the mountains; 15and he on the housetop, do not let him come down into the house, nor come in to take anything out of his house; 16and he who is in the field, do not let him turn to the things behind, to take up his garment. 17And woe to those with child, and to those giving suck, in those days; 18and pray that your flight may not be in winter, 19for those days will be tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created, until now, and may not be [again]; 20and if the LORD did not shorten the days, no flesh had been saved; but because of the chosen, whom He chose to Himself, He shortened the days. 21And then, if any may say to you, Behold, here [is] the Christ, or, Behold, there, you may not believe; 22for there will rise false Christs and false prophets, and they will give signs and wonders, to seduce, if possible, also the chosen; 23and you, take heed; behold, I have foretold you all things.

24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light, 25and the stars of the sky will be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. 26And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with much power and glory, 27and then He will send His messengers, and gather together His chosen from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of heaven.

28And from the fig tree learn the allegory: when the branch may already become tender, and may put forth the leaves, you know that the summer is near; 29so you, also, when you may see these coming to pass, you know that it is near, at the doors. 30Truly I say to you that this generation may not pass away until all these things may come to pass; 31the heaven and the earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

32And concerning that day and the hour no one has known—not even the messengers who are in Heaven, not even the Son—except the Father.

33Take heed, watch and pray, for you have not known when the time is; 34as a man who is gone abroad, having left his house, and given to his servants the authority, and to each one his work, also commanded the doorkeeper that he may watch; 35watch, therefore, for you have not known when the lord of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at rooster-crowing, or at the morning; 36lest, having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping; 37and what I say to you, I say to all, Watch!”
