The Beginning of Sorrows

Mat 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple:
and his disciples came to [him] for to shew him the
buildings of the temple.

Mat 24:2 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.

Mat 24:3 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?

Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.

Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying,
I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Mat 24:6 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.

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be famines,
and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mat 24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

Mat 24:9 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.

Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall
betray one another, and shall hate one another.

Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall
deceive many.

Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love
of many shall wax cold.

Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.

Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in all the world for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end

Mat 24:15 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:)

Mat 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into
the mountains:

Mat 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come
down to take any thing out of his house:

Mat 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return
back to take his clothes.

Mat 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and
to them that give suck in those days!

Mat 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter,
neither on the sabbath day:

Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was
not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.

Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened,
there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's
sake those days shall be shortened.

Mat 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here
[is] Christ, or there; believe [it] not.

Mat 24:24 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.

Mat 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.

Mat 24:26 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.

Mat 24:27 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.

Mat 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will
the eagles be gathered together.

Mat 24:29 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:

Mat 24:30 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.

Mat 24:31 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

Mat 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch
is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know
that summer [is] nigh:

Mat 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things,
know that it is near, [even] at the doors.

Mat 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not
pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my
words shall not pass away.

Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man],
no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be.

Mat 24:38 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,

Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took
them all away; so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.

Mat 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall
be taken, and the other left.

Mat 24:41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill;
the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what
hour your Lord doth come.

Mat 24:43 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.

Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour
as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Mat 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom
his lord hath made ruler over his household,
to give them meat in due season?

Mat 24:46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his lord when
he cometh shall find so doing.

Mat 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make
him ruler over all his goods.

Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his
heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite [his] fellowservants,
and to eat and drink with the drunken;

Mat 24:50 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,

Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint
[him] his portion with the hypocrites: there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
