Christ foretelleth the destruction of the Temple:
Mark 13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples sayde vnto hym: Maister, see what stones, & what buildynges [are here.] Mark 13:2 And Iesus aunswered, & sayde vnto hym: Seest thou these great buildynges? There shall not be left one stone vpon another, that shall not be throwen downe. Mark 13:3 And as he sate vpon the mount of Oliues, ouer agaynst the temple, Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and Andrewe, asked hym, secretely: Mark 13:4 Tell vs, when shall these thynges be? And what shalbe the signe when all these thynges shalbe fulfylled? Mark 13:5 And Iesus aunswered them, and began to say: take heede, lest any man deceaue you. Mark 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying I am [Christe:] and shall deceaue many. Mark 13:7 When ye shall heare of warres, and tidynges of warres, be ye not troubled: For such thynges must nedes be, but the ende is not yet. Mark 13:8 For there shall nation aryse agaynst nation, and kyngdome agaynst kyngdome: And there shalbe earthquakes in diuers places, and famine shall there be, and troubles. These are the begynnyng of sorowes.
the persecutions for the Gospel:
Mark 13:9 But take ye heede to your selues: For they shall deliuer you vp to councels, and to synagogues, and ye shalbe beaten, yea, and shalbe brought before rulers & kynges for my sake, for a testimoniall vnto 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 leade you, and present you, be not carefull aforehande, neither take thought what ye shall speake: but whatsoeuer is geuen you in the same houre, that speake ye. For it is not ye that speake, but the holy ghost. Mark 13:12 The brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the sonne: and the chyldren shall ryse agaynst their fathers and mothers, and shall put them to death. Mark 13:13 And ye shalbe hated of all men for my names sake: But who so endureth vnto the ende, the same shalbe safe.
that great calamities shall happen to the Jews:
Mark 13:14 Moreouer, when ye see the abhomination of desolation, wherof is spoken by Daniel the prophete, stande where it ought not (let hym that readeth vnderstande) then let them that be in Iurie, flee to the mountaynes: Mark 13:15 And let hym that is on ye house toppe, not go downe into the house, neither enter therin, to fetch any thyng out of his house. Mark 13:16 And let hym that is in the fielde, not turne backe agayne vnto the thynges which he left behynde hym, for to take his garmente with hym. Mark 13:17 Wo [shalbe] then to them that are with chylde, and to them that geue sucke in those dayes. Mark 13:18 But pray ye that your flyght be not in the Wynter: Mark 13:19 For there shalbe in those dayes such tribulation, as was not from the begynnyng of creatures, which God created, vnto this tyme, neither shalbe. Mark 13:20 And except that the Lorde shoulde shorten [those] dayes, no fleshe shoulde be saued: But for the electes sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened [those] dayes. Mark 13:21 And then, yf any man say to you, lo here is Christe, lo he is there, beleue not. Mark 13:22 For false Christes, and false prophetes shall ryse, and shall shewe signes and wonders, to deceaue, yf it were possible, euen the elect. Mark 13:23 But take ye heede: Beholde, I haue shewed you all thynges before.
and the manner of his coming to judgment:
Mark 13:24 Moreouer, in those dayes, after that tribulation, the sunne shall waxe darke, and the moone shall not geue her light. Mark 13:25 And the starres of heauen, shall fall: and the powers which are in heauen, shalbe shaken. Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the sonne of man commyng in the cloudes, with great power and glory. Mark 13:27 And then shall he sende his Angels, and shall gather together his elect, from the foure wyndes, from the ende of the earth, to the vtmost part of heauen. Mark 13:28 Learne a parable of the fygge tree. When his braunche is yet tender, and hath brought foorth leaues, ye knowe that sommer is neare: Mark 13:29 So ye in lyke maner, when ye see these thynges come to passe, vnderstand, that [he] is nye, euen at the doores. Mark 13:30 Ueryly I say vnto you, that this generation shall not passe, tyll all these thynges be done. Mark 13:31 Heauen and earth shall passe away, but my wordes 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 tyme knoweth no man: no not the Angels which are in heauen, neither the sonne him selfe, saue the father only. Mark 13:33 Take heede, watche and pray: for ye knowe not when the tyme is. Mark 13:34 As a man which is gone into a straunge countrey, and hath left his house, and geuen auctoritie to his seruauntes, and to euery man his worke, and commaunded the porter to watche: Mark 13:35 Watche ye therfore, (for ye knowe not whe the maister of the house wyl come, at euen, or at mydnyght, whether at the cocke crowyng, or in the dawnyng.) Mark 13:36 Lest yf he come sodenly, he fynde you slepyng. Mark 13:37 And that I say vnto you, I say vnto all, watche.
