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

You serpents! You brood of vipers !
How can you escape the judgment of


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-


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 !

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


And you were not willing.
Behold, your house is left to you desolate.

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 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.”

24 : 4

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

will come in my name,
And say, I am the Christ,
And will deceive many.
And you will hear of wars and rumors of

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,

24 : 13

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.

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.


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


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,
