Mark 13:21-37 American Standard Version

21  And then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ; or, Lo, there; believe [it] not: 22  for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders, that they may lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23  But take ye heed: behold, I have told you all things beforehand.

The Coming of the Son of Man

24  But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25  and the stars shall be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be shaken. 26  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27  And then shall he send forth the angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

28  Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and putteth forth its leaves, ye know that the summer is nigh; 29  even so ye also, when ye see these things coming to pass, know ye that he is nigh, [even] at the doors. 30  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, until all these things be accomplished. 31  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32  But of that day or that hour knoweth no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33  Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34  [It is] as [when] a man, sojourning in another country, having left his house, and given authority to his servants, to each one his work, commanded also the porter to watch. 35  Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, whether at even, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning; 36  lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37  And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
