No One Knows That Day and Hour
36 “But concerning that day and hour (A)no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, (B)nor the Son,[a] (C)but the Father only. 37 (D)For as were the days of Noah, (E)so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 (F)For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, (G)marrying and giving in marriage, until (H)the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, (I)so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 (J)Two women will be grinding (K)at the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, (L)stay awake, for you do not know on what day (M)your Lord is coming. 43 (N)But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night (O)the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be (P)ready, for (Q)the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
45 “Who then is (R)the faithful and (S)wise servant,[b] whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 (T)Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, (U)he will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master (V)is delayed,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants[c] and eats and drinks with (W)drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come (X)on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place (Y)there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.Read full chapter

God Who Judges the Earth
3 The wicked are (D)estranged from the womb;
they go astray from birth, speaking lies.
4 (E)They have venom like the venom of a serpent,
like the deaf adder that stops its ear,
5 so that it (F)does not hear the voice of charmers
or of the cunning enchanter.
6 O God, (G)break the teeth in their mouths;
tear out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord!
7 Let them (H)vanish like water that runs away;
when he (I)aims his arrows, let them be blunted.
8 Let them be like the snail (J)that dissolves into slime,
like (K)the stillborn child who never sees the sun.
9 Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of (L)thorns,
whether green or ablaze, may he (M)sweep them away![c]
10 (N)The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
he will (O)bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 Mankind will say, “Surely there is (P)a reward for the righteous;
surely there is a God who (Q)judges on earth.”
