3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.5 Formany will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’and will deceive many.6 And you will hear ofwars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for[a]all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.7 Fornation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will befamines,[b]pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.11 Thenmany false prophets will rise up anddeceive many.12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will growcold.13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.14 And thisgospel of the kingdomwill be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Him privately, 4 “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?”
5 And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you.6 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.8 For nation will rise against nation, andkingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines[a]and troubles.These are the beginnings of[b]sorrows.
9 “Butwatch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will[c]be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them.10 Andthe gospel must first be preached to all the nations.11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand,[d]or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak,but the Holy Spirit.12 Nowbrother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. Buthe who[e]endures to the end shall be saved.
