11And He looked up and saw the richputting their gifts into the treasury.
And He saw a poorwidowputtingain 2twobsmallcoppercoins.
And He said, "Truly I say to you, thispoorwidowput in more than all of them;4for they all out of their csurplusput into the doffering; but she out of her povertyput in allethat she had3to live on."54And while some were talkingabout the temple, that it was adorned with beautifulstones and votivegifts, He said,
6"As for thesethingswhich you are looking at, the days will come in which5there will not be left one stone upon anotherwhich will not be torndown."7
They questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, whentherefore will thesethingshappen? And what will be the fsignwhenthesethings are about to takeplace?"
And He said, "See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, '6I am He,' and, 'The time is near.' 7Do not goafter them.9"When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for thesethingsmusttakeplacefirst, but the end does not follow immediately."
10Then He continued by saying to them, "Nation will riseagainstnation and kingdomagainstkingdom,11and there will be greatearthquakes, and in variousplacesplagues and famines; and there will be terrors and greatgsigns from heaven.12"But beforeallthesethings, 8they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, hbringing you beforekings and governors for My name'ssake.13"9It will lead to ian opportunity for your testimony.14"10Somake up your minds not to preparebeforehand to defend yourselves;15for 11I will give you jutterance and wisdomwhichnone of your opponents will be able to resistorrefute.16"But you will be betrayedeven by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death,17and you will be hated by allbecause of My name.18"Yet12not a hair of your head will perish.19"13By your endurance you will gain your klives.20"But when you seeJerusalem14surrounded by armies, thenlrecognize that her desolation is near.21"Thenthosewho are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and thosewho are in the midst of mthe city must leave, and 15thosewho are in the country must not enternthe city;22becausethese are 16days of vengeance, so that allthings which are written will be fulfilled.23"Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursingbabies in thosedays; for 17there will be greatdistress upon the oland and wrath to thispeople;24and they will fall by 18the edge of the sword, and will be ledcaptive into all the nations; and 19Jerusalem will be 20trampledunder foot by the Gentilesuntil21the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
25"There will be psigns in sun and moon and stars, and on the earthdismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves,26menfainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the qworld; for the powers of rthe heavens will be shaken.27"22Then they will see23THE SON OF MANCOMING IN A CLOUD with power and greatglory.28"But when thesethingsbegin to takeplace, straighten up and lift up your heads, because24your redemption is drawingnear."29Then He told them a parable: "Behold the figtree and all the trees;30as soon as they putforth leaves, you see it and 25know for yourselves that summer is nownear.31"So you also, when you seethesethingshappening, srecognize that 26the kingdom of God is near.32"Truly I say to you, thistgeneration will not passawayuntilallthingstakeplace.33"27Heaven and earth will passaway, but My words will not passaway.34"28Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighteddown with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenlylike a trap;35for it will come upon allthose who dwell on the face of all the earth.36"But 29keep on the alert at alltimes, praying that you may havestrength to escapeallthesethings that are about to takeplace, and to 30standbefore the Son of Man."37Nowuduring the day He was 31teaching in the temple, but v32at evening He would go out and spend the night on w33the mount that is calledxOlivet.
And all the people would get up 34early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him.
