20 The P'rushim asked Yeshua when the Kingdom of God would come. "The Kingdom of God," he answered, "does not come with visible signs;
21 nor will people be able to say, `Look! Here it is!' or, `Over there!' Because, you see, the Kingdom of God is among you."
22 Then he said to his talmidim, "The time is coming when you will long to see even one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
23 People will say to you, `Look! Right here!' or, `See! Over there!' Don't run off, don't follow them,
24 because the Son of Man in his day will be like lightning that flashes and lights up the sky from one horizon to the other.
25 But first he must endure horrible suffering and be rejected by this generation.
26 "Also, at the time of the Son of Man, it will be just as it was at the time of Noach.
27 People ate and drank, and men and women married, right up until the day Noach entered the ark; then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise, as it was in the time of Lot -- people ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and built;
29 but the day Lot left S'dom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 That is how it will be on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
31 On that day, if someone is on the roof with his belongings in his house, he must not go down to take them away. Similarly, if someone is in the field, he must not turn back --
32 remember Lot's wife!
33 Whoever aims at preserving his own life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will stay alive.
34 I tell you, on that night there will be two people in one bed -- one will be taken and the other left behind.
35 There will be two women grinding grain together -- one will be taken and the other left behind."
36 Some manuscripts have verse 36: Two men will be in a field -- one will be taken and the other left behind."
37 They asked him, "Where, Lord?" He answered, "Wherever there's a dead body, that's where the vultures gather."
