Matthew 24:29-51 American Standard Version

The Coming of the Son of Man

29  But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall 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: 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 on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31  And he shall send forth 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 other.

32  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; 33  even so ye also, when ye see all these things, know ye that he is nigh, [even] at the doors. 34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished. 35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

No Man Knoweth the Day and Hour

36  But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only. 37  And as [were] the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. 38  For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, 39  and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. 40  Then shall two man be in the field; one is taken, and one is left: 41  two women [shall be] grinding at the mill; one is taken, and one is left. 42  Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh. 43  But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. 44  Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh.

The Unfaithful Servant

45  Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season? 46  Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47  Verily I say unto you, that he will set him over all that he hath. 48  But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord tarrieth; 49  and shall begin to beat his fellow-servants, and shall eat and drink with the drunken; 50  the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he expecteth not, and in an hour when he knoweth not, 51  and shall cut him asunder, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
