Mark 13:21-37 Bible in Basic English

21  And then if any man says to you, See, here is Christ; or, See, there; have no faith in it: 22  Because there will be false Christs and false prophets, and they will give signs and wonders in the hope of turning even the saints from the true way. 23  But take care; see, I have made all things clear to you before the time.

The Coming of the Son of Man

24  But in those days, after that time of trouble, the sun will be made dark and the moon will not give her light, 25  And the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers which are in the heavens will be moved. 26  And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27  And then he will send out the angels, and will get together his saints from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the farthest part of heaven.

28  Take an example from the fig-tree: when its branches become soft and put out their leaves, you see that the summer is near; 29  Even so, when you see these things taking place, you may be certain that he is near, even at the doors. 30  Truly, I say to you, This generation will not come to an end till all these things are complete. 31  Heaven and earth will come to an end, but my words will not come to an end. 32  But of that day or that hour no one has knowledge, not even the angels in heaven, or the Son, but the Father. 33  Take care, keep watch with prayer: for you are not certain when the time will be. 34  It is as when a man who is in another country for a time, having gone away from his house, and given authority to his servants and to everyone his work, gives the porter an order to keep watch. 35  So you are to keep watch: because you are not certain when the master of the house is coming, in the evening, or in the middle of the night, or at the cock's cry, or in the morning; 36  For fear that, coming suddenly, he sees you sleeping. 37  And what I say to you, I say to all, Keep watch.
