Mark 13:21-37 New American Standard Bible

21  "And then if anyone says to you, 'Behold , here is the Christ '; or, 'Behold , He is there '; do not believe him; 22  for false Christs and false prophets will arise , and will show signs and wonders , in order to lead astray , if possible , the elect . 23  "But take heed ; behold , I have told you everything in advance .

The Coming of the Son of Man

24  "But in those days , after that tribulation , THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT , 25   AND THE STARS WILL BE FALLING from heaven , and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken . 26  "Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory . 27  "And then He will send forth the angels , and will gather together His elect from the four winds , from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven .

28  "Now learn the parable from the fig tree : when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves , you know that summer is near . 29  "Even so , you too , when you see these things happening , recognize that He is near , right at the door . 30  "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place . 31  "Heaven and earth will pass away , but My words will not pass away . 32  " But of that day or hour no one knows , not even the angels in heaven , nor the Son , but the Father alone. 33  "Take heed , keep on the alert ; for you do not know when the appointed time will come . 34  " It is like a man away on a journey , who upon leaving his house and putting his slaves in charge , assigning to each one his task , also commanded the doorkeeper to stay on the alert . 35  "Therefore , be on the alert -for you do not know when the master of the house is coming , whether in the evening , at midnight , or when the rooster crows , or in the morning - 36  in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep . 37  "What I say to you I say to all , ' Be on the alert !'
