Matthew 24:36-42New American Standard Bible (NASB)
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.37 For [a]the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,39 and they did not [b]understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.40 Then there will be two men in the field; one [c]will be taken and one [d]will be left.41 Two women will be grinding at the [e]mill; one [f]will be taken and one [g]will be left.
Be Ready for His Coming
42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
14 “Do not let your heart be troubled; [a]believe in God, believe also in Me.2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.
10 And as they were gazing intently into [a]the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them.11 They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into [b]the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”
39 We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the [a]land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a [b]cross.40 God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible,41 not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.42 And He ordered us to [c]preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.
