No One Knows the Day or Hour

36 “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows—neither the angels of heaven nor the Son[a] —except the Father alone.(A) 37 As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 38 For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the ark.(B) 39 They didn’t know until the flood came and swept them all away. This is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding grain with a hand mill; one will be taken and one left.(C) 42 Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day[b] your Lord is coming.(D) 43 But know this: If the homeowner had known what time[c] the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert and not let his house be broken into.(E) 44 This is why you are also to be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.(F)
