Christ foretelleth the destruction of the Temple:
Mark 13:1 And as he went out of the Temple, one of his disciples saith vnto him, Master, see what maner of stones, and what buildings [are here]. Mark 13:2 And Iesus answering, said vnto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone vpon an other, that shal not be throwen downe. Mark 13:3 And as he sate vpon the mount of Oliues, ouer against the Temple, Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and Andrew asked him priuately, Mark 13:4 Tell vs, when shall these things be? And what shalbe the signe when all these things shalbe fulfilled? Mark 13:5 And Iesus answering them, began to say, Take heed lest any man deceiue you. Mark 13:6 For many shal come in my Name, saying, I am [Christ]: and shall deceiue many. Mark 13:7 And when yee shall heare of warres, and rumors of warres, be yee not troubled: For such [things] must needs be, but the end [shall] not [be] yet. Mark 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdome against kingdome: and there shalbe earthquakes in diuers places, and there shall be famines, and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrowes.
the persecutions for the Gospel:
Mark 13:9 But take heed to your selues: for they shall deliuer you vp to councels, and in the Synagogues ye shall be beaten, and ye shalbe brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
that the Gospel must be preached to all nations:
Mark 13:10 And the Gospel must first be published among all nations. Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliuer you vp, take no thought before hand what ye shall speake, neither doe yee premeditate: but whatsoeuer shall bee giuen you in that houre, that speake yee: for it is not yee that speake, but the holy Ghost. Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the sonne: and children shall rise vp against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. Mark 13:13 And ye shall bee hated of all men for my Names sake: but hee that shall endure vnto the ende, the same shall be saued.
that great calamities shall happen to the Jews:
Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, standing where it ought not (let him that readeth vnderstand) then let them that be in Iudea, flee to the mountaines: Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the house top, not goe downe into the house, neither enter therin, to take any thing out of his house. Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the field, not turne backe againe for to take vp his garment. Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that giue suck in those dayes. Mark 13:18 And pray ye that your flight bee not in the winter. Mark 13:19 For in those dayes shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created, vnto this time, neither shall be. Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those dayes, no flesh should be saued: but for the elects sake whome he hath chosen, he hath shortned the daies. Mark 13:21 And then, if any man shall say to you, Loe, here is Christ, or loe, hee is there: beleeue him not. Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shewe signes and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, euen the elect. Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I haue foretold you all things.
and the manner of his coming to judgment:
Mark 13:24 But in those dayes, after that tribulation, the Sunne shalbe darkned, and the Moone shall not giue her light. Mark 13:25 And the Starres of heauen shall fall, and the powers that [are] in heauen shall be shaken. Mark 13:26 And then shal they see the Sonne of man comming in the cloudes, with great power and glory. Mark 13:27 And then shal he send his Angels, and shall gather together his elect from the foure winds, from the vttermost part of the earth, to the vttermost part of heauen. Mark 13:28 Now learne a parable of the fig tree. When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaues, ye know that summer is neere: Mark 13:29 So ye in like maner, when ye shal see these things come to passe, knowe that it is nigh, euen at the doores. Mark 13:30 Uerely I say vnto you, that this generation shall not passe, till all these things be done. Mark 13:31 Heauen and earth shal passe away: but my words shall not passe away.
the hour whereof being known to none, every man is to watch and pray, that we be not found unprovided, when he cometh to each one particularly by death.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that houre knoweth no man, no not the Angels which are in heauen, neither the Son, but the Father. Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:34 [For the Sonne of man is] as a man taking a farre iourney, who left his house, and gaue authority to his seruants, and to euery man his worke, and commanded the porter to watch: Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore (for ye knowe not when the master of the house commeth, at Euen, or at midnight, or at the cocke crowing, or in the morning.) Mark 13:36 Lest comming suddenly, he finde you sleeping. Mark 13:37 And what I say vnto you, I say vnto all, Watch.
