25 But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly[a] and be rejected by this generation.
26 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.27 In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 “And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building—29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.30 Yes, it will be ‘business as usual’ right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.31 On that day a person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return home.32 Remember what happened to Lot’s wife!33 If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.34 That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken, the other left.35 Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.[b]”
37 “Where will this happen, Lord?”[c] the disciples asked.
Jesus replied, “Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.”[d]
