Luke 21:20-38 Darby’s Translation

20  But when ye see Jerusalem encompassed with armies, then know that its desolation is drawn nigh. 21  Then let those who are in Judaea flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of it depart out, and those who are in the country not enter into it; 22  for these are days of avenging, that all the things that are written may be accomplished. 23  But woe to them that are with child and to them who give suck in those days, for there shall be great distress upon the land and wrath upon this people. 24  And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of [the] nations until [the] times of [the] nations 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 [at] the roar of the sea and rolling waves, 26  men ready to die through fear and expectation of what is coming on the habitable earth, 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 draws nigh.

29  And he spoke a parable to them: Behold the fig-tree and all the trees; 30  when they already sprout, ye know of your own selves, [on] looking [at them], that already the summer is near. 31  So also ye, when ye see these things take place, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32  Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall in no wise pass away until all come to pass. 33  The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall in no wise pass away. 34  But take heed to yourselves lest possibly your hearts be laden with surfeiting and drinking and cares of life, and that day come upon you suddenly unawares; 35  for as a snare shall it come upon all them that dwell upon the face of the whole earth. 36  Watch therefore, praying at every season, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things which are about to come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 37  And by day he was teaching in the temple, and by night, going out, he remained abroad on the mountain called [the mount] of Olives; 38  and all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple to hear him.
