13:1 And when he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith to him, Master, see, what manner stones, and what manner buildings. And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples said unto him: Master, see what stones, and what buildings are here. And as he went out of the Temple, one of his disciples said unto him, Master, see what stones, and what buildings are here. And as he went out of the Temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones, and what buildings are here.
13:2 And Jesus answering said to him, Seest thou all these great buildings? there shall not be left a stone upon a stone, that shall not be destroyed. And Jesus answered, and said unto him: Seest thou these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Then Jesus answered and said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon a stone, that shall not be thrown down. And Jesus answering, said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

13:4 Say thou to us, when these things shall be done, and what sign shall be, when all these things shall begin to be ended. tell us when these things shall be? And what is the sign, when all these things shall be fulfilled? Tell us, when shall these things be? & what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
13:5 And Jesus answering began to say to them, See ye, that no man deceive you; And Jesus answered them, and began to say: Take heed lest any man deceive you. And Jesus answered them, and began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you. And Jesus answering them, began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you.
13:6 for many shall come in my name, saying, That I am; and they shall deceive many. For many shall come in my name saying: I am Christ, and shall deceive many. For many shall come in my Name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. For many shall come in my Name, saying, I am Christ: and shall deceive many.
13:7 And when ye shall hear battles and opinions of battles, dread ye not; for it behooveth that these things be done, but the end is not yet. When ye shall hear of war, and tidings of war, be ye not troubled. For they must needs be. But the end is not yet. Furthermore when ye shall hear, of wars and rumors of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be: but the end shall not be yet. And when ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars, be ye not troubled: For such things must needs be, but the end shall not be yet.
13:8 For folk shall rise upon folk, and realm upon realm, and earth-moving shall be by places and hunger; these things shall be beginnings of sorrows. For there shall nation arise against nation, and realm against realm. And there shall be earthquakes, in all quarters, and famishment, and troubles. These are the beginning of sorrows. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be earthquakes in divers quarters, and there shall be famine and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines, and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
13:9 But see ye yourselves, for they shall take you in councils, and ye shall be beaten in synagogues; and ye shall stand before kings and doomsmen for me, in witnessing to them. But take ye heed to yourselves. For they shall bring you up to the councils and into the synagogues, and ye shall be beaten, and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings, for my sake, for a testimonial unto them. But take ye heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to the Councils, and to the Synagogues: ye shall be beaten, and brought before rulers and Kings for my sake for a testimonial unto them. But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils, and in the Synagogues ye shall be beaten, and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

13:11 And when they shall take you, and lead you forth, do not ye before think what ye shall speak, but speak ye that thing that shall be given to you in that hour; soothly ye be not speaking, but the Holy Ghost. But when they lead you and present you take no thought, aforehand what ye shall say, neither imagine: but whatsoever is given you at the same time, that speak. For it shall not be ye that shall speak, but the holy ghost. But when they lead you, and deliver you up, take ye no thought afore, neither premeditate what ye shall say: but whatsoever is given you at the same time, that speak: for it is not ye that speak, but the holy Ghost. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the holy Ghost.

Yea, and the brother shall deliver the brother to death, and the father the son, and the children shall rise against their parents, and shall cause them to die. Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son: and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
13:13 And ye shall be in hatred to all men for my name; but he that shall sustain into the end, this shall be safe. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But whosoever shall endure unto the end shall be safe. And ye shall be hated of all men for my Name’s sake: but whosoever shall endure unto the end, he shall be saved. And ye shall be hated of all men for my Name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of discomfort, standing where it oweth not; he that readeth, understand; then they that be in Judaea, flee to the mountains.

Moreover, when ye shall see the abomination of desolation (spoken of by Daniel the Prophet) standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth, consider it) then let them that be in Judea, flee into the mountains, But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, standing where it ought not (let him that readeth understand) then let them that be in Judea, flee to the mountains:

13:17 But woe to them that be with child, and nursing in those days. But woe is then to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days.

And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, which he hath chosen, he hath shortened those days. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall give signs and wonders, to deceive, if it may be done, yea, the chosen. For false christs shall arise, and false prophets, And shall shew miracles and wonders, to deceive if it were possible, even the elect.

13:34 For as a man that is gone far in pilgrimage, left his house, and gave to his servants power of every work, and commanded to the porter, that he should wake.
