MARK 13:1–13:37 ©

The Gospel of Mark 13

13And as he is going out from the temple, one of his disciples says to him, “Teacher, look! What manner of stones and what manner of buildings!” 2And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? A stone upon a stone will certainly not be left here, which will certainly not be torn down.”

3And as he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew were asking him by themselves, 4“Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign when all these things are about to be completed?” 5Now Jesus began to say to them, “Be careful that no one leads you astray. 6Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. 7But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; it is necessary for this to happen, but the end is not yet. 8For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These things are the beginning of birth pains.

9But you, watch yourselves! They will hand you over to councils and to synagogues; you will be beaten, and you will be made to stand before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony to them. 10And first, it is necessary for the gospel to be proclaimed to all the nations. 11And when they lead you away, handing you over, do not worry about what you will say. But whatever is given to you in that hour, speak that; for you are not the ones speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 12And brother will hand over brother to death, and a father, his child, and children will rise up against parents and put them to death. 13And you will be hated by all because of my name. But the one having endured to the end, this one will be saved.

14But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he should not be” (let the one reading understand), “then let the ones in Judea flee to the mountains, 15but let the one on the housetop not go down nor go in to take anything from his house, 16and let the one in the field not turn back to the things behind to get his cloak. 17But woe to the ones having in the womb and to the ones nursing in those days! 18But pray that it might not happen in winter. 19For there will be in those days tribulation—such as this kind has not happened from the beginning of creation which God created until now and will certainly not happen. 20And if the Lord did not shorten the days, no flesh would be saved. But because of the elect whom he chose, he shortened the days. 21And then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ! Behold, there!’ do not believe it. 22For false Christs and false prophets will be raised up and will give signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23But you, watch out! Behold, I have told you everything beforehand.

24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 26And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with much power and glory. 27And then he will send the angels and he will gather together his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of heaven.

28Now learn the parable from the fig tree: When its branch already becomes tender and it puts out leaves, you know that the summer is near. 29Thus also you, when you see these things happening, know that it is near, at the doors. 30Truly I say to you that this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things happen. 31The heaven and the earth will pass away, but my words will certainly not pass away. 32But concerning that day or the hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, except the Father.

33Be alert! Stay awake and pray, because you do not know when the time is. 34As a man on a journey, having left his house, and having given to each of his servants authority over his work, and he commanded the doorkeeper that he should stay alert; 35therefore, stay alert, because you do not know when the lord of the house is coming—whether evening or midnight or at rooster crowing or at morning— 36lest, having come suddenly, he might find you sleeping. 37But what I say to you I say to everyone: Stay alert!”
