3 Later, Jesus sat on the slopes of the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and asked, "When will all this take place? And will there be any sign ahead of time to signal your return and the end of the world?" 3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
4 Jesus told them, "Don't let anyone mislead you. 4 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you.
5 For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Messiah.' They will lead many astray. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ, ' and will deceive many.
6 And wars will break out near and far, but don't panic. Yes, these things must come, but the end won't follow immediately. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
7 The nations and kingdoms will proclaim war against each other, and there will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
8 But all this will be only the beginning of the horrors to come." 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9 "Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because of your allegiance to me. 9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,
11 And many false prophets will appear and will lead many people astray. 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
13 But those who endure to the end will be saved. 13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
14 And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then, finally, the end will come." 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
