Luke 21:1-19 American Standard Version

The Widow's Offering

21 1  And he looked up, and saw the rich men that were casting their gifts into the treasury. 2  And he saw a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. 3  And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, This poor widow cast in more than they all: 4  for all these did of their superfluity cast in unto the gifts; but she of her want did cast in all the living that she had.

The Destruction of the Temple and Signs before the End

5  And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and offerings, he said, 6  As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in which there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 7  And they asked him, saying, Teacher, when therefore shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign when these things are about to come to pass? 8  And he said, Take heed that ye be not led astray: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am [he]; and, The time is at hand: go ye not after them. 9  And when ye shall hear of wars and tumults, be not terrified: for these things must needs come to pass first; but the end is not immediately. 10  Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11  and there shall be great earthquakes, and in divers places famines and pestilences; and there shall be terrors and great signs from heaven. 12  But before all these things, they shall lay their hands on you, and shall persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for my name's sake. 13  It shall turn out unto you for a testimony. 14  Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate beforehand how to answer: 15  for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to withstand or to gainsay. 16  But ye shall be delivered up even by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolk, and friends; and [some] of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. 18  And not a hair of your head shall perish. 19  In your patience ye shall win your souls.
