Olives, over against the temple, Peter, and James, 4 and John, and Andrew, asked him privately, Tell

us, when will this happen? And what will be the 5 sign when all this is to be accomplished ? Jesus

answering them, took occasion to say, Take heed 6 that no man seduce you ; for many will assume

my character, saying, 'I am the person, and 7 will seduce many. But when ye hear of wars,

and rumours of wars, be not alarmed ; for this

must happen, but the end is not yet. 8 For nation will rise against nation, and king- Mat. 24; 7. dom against kingdom; and there will be earth- Mat.
