Matthew 24:1-51 (KJV)
[1] And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple:
and his disciples came to him for to shew him
the buildings of the temple.

[2] And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all
these things? verily I say unto you, There
shall not be left here one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.

[3] And as he sat upon the mount of Olives,
the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and
what shall be the sign of thy coming,
and of the end of the world?

[4] And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.

[5] For many shall come in my name, saying,
I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

[6] And ye shall hear of wars and rumours
of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.

[7] For nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom: and there
shall be famines, and pestilences,
and earthquakes, in divers places.

[8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

[9] Then shall they deliver you up to
be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye
shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

[10] And then shall many be offended, and shall
betray one another, and shall hate one another.

[11] And many false prophets shall rise,
and shall deceive many.

[12] And because iniquity shall abound,
the love of many shall wax cold.

[13] But he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.

[14] And this gospel of the kingdom shall
be preached in all the world for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

[15] When ye therefore shall see the abomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth,
let him understand:)

[16] Then let them which be in Judaea
flee into the mountains:

[17] Let him which is on the housetop not
come down to take any thing out of his house:

[18] Neither let him which is in the field
return back to take his clothes.

[19] And woe unto them that are with child,
and to them that give suck in those days!

[20] But pray ye that your flight be not in
the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

[21] For then shall be great tribulation,
such as was not since the beginning of the
world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

[22] And except those days should be shortened,
there should no flesh be saved: but for the
elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

[23] Then if any man shall say unto you,
Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

[24] For there shall arise false Christs, and
false prophets, and shall shew great signs
and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect.

[25] Behold, I have told you before.

[26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

[27] For as the lightning cometh out of the
east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall
also the coming of the Son of man be.

[28] For wheresoever the carcase is, there
will the eagles be gathered together.

[29] Immediately after the tribulation of those
days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon
shall not give her light, and the stars shall
fall from heaven, and the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken:

[30] And then shall appear the sign of the
Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the
tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see
the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.

[31] And he shall send his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather
together his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.

[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When his branch is yet tender, and putteth
forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

[33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all
these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation
shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but
my words shall not pass away.

[36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

[37] But as the days of Noah were, so shall
also the coming of the Son of man be.

[38] For as in the days that were before the
flood they were eating and drinking, marrying
and giving in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the ark,

[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took
them all away; so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.

[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one
shall be taken, and the other left.

[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill;
the one shall be taken, and the other left.

[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what
hour your Lord doth come.

[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the
house had known in what watch the thief
would come, he would have watched, and would
not have suffered his house to be broken up.

[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such
an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant,
whom his lord hath made ruler over his household,
to give them meat in due season?

[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord
when he cometh shall find so doing.

[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall
make him ruler over all his goods.

[48] But and if that evil servant shall say
in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

[49] And shall begin to smite his fellowservants,
and to eat and drink with the drunken;

day when he looketh not for him, and in an
[50] The lord of that servant shall come in a
hour that he is not aware of,

[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint
him his portion with the hypocrites: there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


May your day be filled with God's eternal love and blessings!
