The Coming of the Son of Man

25 “And (A)there will be signs in sun and moon (B)and stars, and on the earth (C)distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For (D)the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see (E)the Son of Man coming in a cloud (F)with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and (G)raise your heads, because (H)your redemption is drawing near.”

The Lesson of the Fig Tree

29 And he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. 30 As soon as they come out in leaf, you see (I)for yourselves and know that the summer is already near. 31 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 (J)Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place. 33 (K)Heaven and earth will pass away, but (L)my words will not pass away.
