23: 29.

For you build the tombs of the prophets,
And decorate the graves of good men,
And say: If we had been in the days of our

fathers

We should not have shared with them in the blood of the prophets.

So you are your own witnesses

That you are the sons of those who killed the

prophets.

Fill up then the measure of your fathers.
You serpents! You brood of vipers !

How can you escape the judgment of
gehenna?

So I send you prophets,

And wise men, and scribes.

Some of them you will kill and crucify,
Some of them you will beat in your syna-

gogues,

And persecute from city to city,

That on you may come

All the good blood shed on the earth,
From the blood of Abel the good

To the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah,
Whom they slew between the Holy Place
and the altar.

To tell you the truth :

All these things will come on this generation.

O Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

23:37.

The killer of the prophets,
And stoner of those sent to you.

How often did I desire to gather your chil

dren together,

As a hen gathers her chickens under her

wings,

And you were not willing.

Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you: You will never see me again

Till you will say

Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."

Jesus went out from the temple and was going his way, and his disciples came to him to show him the buildings of the temple. But he answered and said to them:

"Do you not see all these? To tell you the truth, There will not be left here one stone on another which will not be thrown down."

Now while he was sitting on the mount of Olives, his disciples came to him privately and said to him :

"Tell us when these things will be and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the world."

Jesus answered and said to them: "See that no one deceives you.

24: 4.

For many will come in my name,
And say, I am the Christ,

And will deceive many.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of

wars.

See that you are not troubled,
For it must happen,

But the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation

Kingdom against kingdom,

There will be famines and earthquakes

In different places.

But all these are the beginning of travail.

Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, And will kill you.

You will be hated by all the nations For my name's sake.

Then many will be offended.

They will deliver up each other,
And will hate each other.

Many false prophets will rise,
And will lead many astray,
And because lawlessness shall abound,
The love of the many will grow cold,

But he who endures to the end,
He will be saved.

The good news of the Kingdom
Will be preached in the whole world,

For a witness to all the nations,

And then will the end come.

24: 13.

So when you see the abomination of desolation
Spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
Standing in the Holy Place,

(Let him who reads, understand), Then let those in Judæa

Flee to the mountains.

Let him who is on the housetop

Not go down to take his things out of the

house.

And let him who is in the field

Not turn back to take his clothes.

But woe to those with child!

To those giving suck in those days! But pray

that your flight be not in the winter Nor on the Sabbath.

For then will be great tribulation

Such as was not from the beginning of the

world

Till this time,

Nor ever will be.

24: 22.

And if those days had not been shortened
No flesh would have been saved.

But for the sake of the chosen ones,
Those days will be shortened.

Then if any one shall say to you:

See! here is Christ, or, There, do not believe

it.

For there will rise false Christs

And false prophets.

And they will show great signs and wonders,
To deceive if possible the very elect.

See, I have told you beforehand.

So if they shall say to you:
See, he is in the desert!

Do not go out.

See, he is in the inner chambers
Do not believe it.

For just as the lightning comes out of the

east,

And is seen even to the west,

The same way will the coming

Of the Son of man be.

Wherever the carcass is

There will the vultures be gathered together.

But at once after the distress of those days, The sun will be darkened,
