And having been questioned by the Pharisees, when the reign of God doth come, he answered them, and said, `The reign of God doth not come with observation;
nor shall they say, Lo, here; or lo, there; for lo, the reign of God is within you.'
And he said unto his disciples, `Days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and ye shall not behold [it];
and they shall say to you, Lo, here; or lo, there; ye may not go away, nor follow;
for as the lightning that is lightening out of the one [part] under heaven, to the other part under heaven doth shine, so shall be also the Son of Man in his day;
and first it behoveth him to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation.
`And, as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man;
they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, till the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the deluge came, and destroyed all;
in like manner also, as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;
and on the day Lot went forth from Sodom, He rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed all.
`According to these things it shall be, in the day the Son of Man is revealed;
in that day, he who shall be on the house top, and his vessels in the house, let him not come down to take them away; and he in the field, in like manner, let him not turn backward;
remember the wife of Lot.
Whoever may seek to save his life, shall lose it; and whoever may lose it, shall preserve it.
`I say to you, In that night, there shall be two men on one couch, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left;
two women shall be grinding at the same place together, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left;
two men shall be in the field, the one shall be taken, and the other left.'
And they answering say to him, `Where, sir?' and he said to them, `Where the body [is], there will the eagles be gathered together.'
