". 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 co, ming, and of the end of the world : nd Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my 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 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 an

other. , 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 3. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall

signs of Christ’s coming. CHAP. XXV.

Knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father

§ But as the days of Noe were,
so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be. .
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;
# one shall be taken, and the other
41 Two women shall be grind-
ing at the mill; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.

know not what hour your Lord
doth come.
43 But know this, that if the good
man 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 not,
the Son.9fmon 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 :
; 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 de-
layeth his coming; . -- - -
#5"And shall begin to smite his
fellow-servants, and to eat and

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

and appoint him his portion with

While the bridegroom tarried,
they all slumbered and slept.

7Then all those virgins arose, and
trimmed their lamps.
