Christ foretelleth the destruction of the Temple:
Mark 13:1 And as he went of the temple, one of his discyples sayde vnto hym: Master, se what stones, and what byldynges are here. Mark 13:2 And Iesus answered and sayde vnto hym: Seest þu these greate buyldynges? There shall not be lefte one stone vpon another, that shall not be throwen downe. Mark 13:3 And as he sate on mounte Olyuete, ouer agaynst the temple, Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and Andrew, asked hym secretly: Mark 13:4 tell vs, when shal these thynges be? And what is the sygne when all these thynges shalbe fulfylled? Mark 13:5 And Iesus answered them, and began to saye: take hede, lest any man deceaue you. Mark 13:6 For many shall come in my name sayinge: I am Chryst, and shall deceaue many. Mark 13:7 When ye shall heare of warres, and tydinges of warres, be ye not troubled. For soch thynges must nedes be? But the ende is not yet. Mark 13:8 For ther shall nacyon aryse agaynste nacyon, and kyngdome agaynste kyngdome. And ther shalbe erth quakes in all quarters, and famyshment shall ther be, and troubles. These are þe begynnynge of sorowes.
the persecutions for the Gospel:
Mark 13:9 But take ye hede to youre selues. For they shall brynge you vp to the counsels, and into the synagoges, and ye shalbe beaten: yee, and shalbe brought before rulers and kinges for my sake, for a testimoniall vnto them.
that the Gospel must be preached to all nations:
Mark 13:10 And the Gospell must fyrste be publyshed amonge all nacyons. Mark 13:11 But when they leade you and present you, take ye no thought, nether ymagin aforehande what ye shall saye: but what soeuer is geuen you in the same houre, that speake. For it is not ye þt speake, but the holy ghost. Mark 13:12 The brother shall delyuer vp the brother to deeth, and the father the sonne: and the chyldren shall ryse agaynste theyr fathers & mothers, and shall put them to deeth. Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake. But whoso endureth vnto the ende, the same shalbe safe.
that great calamities shall happen to the Jews:
Mark 13:14 Moreouer, when ye se þe abhominacion of desolacion (wherof is spoken by Daniel þe prophet) stand where it ought not: let hym þt readeth vnderstand. Then lett them that be in Iurye, flye to the mountaynes. Mark 13:15 And let hym that is on the house toppe, not go downe into the house, nether entre therin, to fetch eny thing out of his house. Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the felde, not tourne backe agayne vnto the thinges which he left behynde him, for to take his clothes with him. Mark 13:17 Wo shall be then to them that are with chylde, and to them that geue sucke in those dayes. Mark 13:18 But praye ye that youre flyght be not in the winter. Mark 13:19 For ther shalbe in those dayes suche tribulacion, as was not from the begynnyng of creatures (which God created) vnto this tyme, nether shalbe. Mark 13:20 And excepte that þe Lord shuld shorten those dayes no flesshe shulde be saued. But for the electes sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened those dayes. Mark 13:21 And then, yf eny man saye to you, lo here is Christ: lo, he is there, beleue not. Mark 13:22 For false Christes & false prophetes shall ryse, & shall shewe myracles & wondres, to deceaue yf it were possible, euen the electe. Mark 13:23 But take ye hede: behold, I haue shewed you all thinges before.
and the manner of his coming to judgment:
Mark 13:24 Moreouer, in those dayes, after that tribulacion, the sonne shall wexe darke, and the mone shal not geue her light, Mark 13:25 & the starres of heauen shall fall: & the powers whych are in heauen, shall moue: Mark 13:26 And then shall they se the sonne of man commynge in the cloudes, wt greate power & glory. Mark 13:27 And then shall he sende hys angels, & shall gather together his electe from the fowre wyndes, from the ende of the erthe, to the vttemost parte of heauen. Mark 13:28 Learne a symilitude of the fygge tree. When his braunche is yet tender, and hath brought forth leaues, ye knowe, þt sommer is neare. Mark 13:29 So ye in lyke maner: when ye se these thynges come to passe: vnderstand, that he is nye euen at þe dores. Mark 13:30 Uerely I saye vnto you, that thys generacion shall not passe, tyll these thinges de done. Mark 13:31 Heauen and erth shall passe, but my wordes shall not passe;
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 daye & tyme knoweth no man: no not þe Angels which are in heauen: nether the sonne him selfe: saue the father only. Mark 13:33 Take hede, watche & praye, for ye knowe not when the tyme is Mark 13:34 As a man which is gone into a straunge contrey, and hath lefte his house, and geuen his substaunce 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 when the master of the house will come, at euen, or at mydnyght, whether at the cocke crowyng, or in þe dawnynge: Mark 13:36 lest yf he come sodenly, he finde you slepynge. Mark 13:37 And that I saye vnto you, I saye vnto all watche.
