Luke 21:20-38 American Standard Version

20  But when ye see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that her desolation is at hand. 21  Then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the mountains; and let them that are in the midst of her depart out; and let not them that are in the country enter therein. 22  For these are days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23  Woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! for there shall be great distress upon the land, and wrath unto this people. 24  And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive into all the nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

The Coming of the Son of Man

25  And there shall be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the billows; 26  men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 27  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28  But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draweth nigh.

29  And he spake to them a parable: Behold the fig tree, and all the trees: 30  when they now shoot forth, ye see it and know of your own selves that the summer is now nigh. 31  Even so ye also, when ye see these things coming to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh. 32  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all things be accomplished. 33  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 34  But take heed to yourselves, lest haply your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come on you suddenly as a snare: 35  for [so] shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of all the earth. 36  But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 37  And every day he was teaching in the temple; and every night he went out, and lodged in the mount that is called Olivet. 38  And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.
