unto him, Seest thou these great buildings! there shall not be left

one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, over against the temple, Peter, and James and John, and Andrew, aske him privately, 4 Tell us, when shall these things be 1 and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled ! 5 And Jesus .# them, began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you : 6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled : for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 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. 9 || 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. 10 And the gospel must be first published among all nations. 11. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what yeshall 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. 12 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 And yeshall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 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 : 15 And let him that is on the house-top not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house : 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But wo to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And prayye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neithergoal be.

20 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. 21 And then, if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ ; or lo, he is there; believe him not. 22 For false Christs, and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 Ti But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together . elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28 Now learn a parable of the fig-tree: When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near : 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Verily, I, say unto you, That this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

€r. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to eve man his work; and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And Wojsay unto you, I say unto all, Watch.

AFTER two days was the jeast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests, and the scribes, sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. 2. But they said, Not on the feast-day, lest there be an uproar of the people. 3 T And being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster-box of ointment of spikenard, very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. 4 And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made 1

Likewise also said

they all. 32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane:

wist they what to answer 41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand. 43 And immediately while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests, and the scribes, and the el

33 And he taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;

34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death : tarry ye here, and watch.

35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.

36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless, not what I will, but what thou wilt.

37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou ? couldest not thou watch one hour !

had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he ; take him, and lead him away safely. 45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, Master; and kissed him. 46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him. 47 And one of them that stood by, drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Areye come out as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me ! 49 I was daily with you in the temple, teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must

50 And they all forsook him and fled.

51 And there followed him al

certain young man, having a lin-
en cloth cast about his naked
body ; and the young men laid
hold on him.
52 And he left the linen cloth,
and fled from them naked.
53 T And they led Jesus away
to the high priest: and with him
were assembled all the chief
priests, and the elders and the
54 And Peter followed him
afar off, even into the palace of
the high priest: and he sat with
the servants, and warmed him-
self at the fire.
55 And the chief priests,
and all the council, sought for
witness against Jesus to put him
to death; and found none:
56 For many bare false wit-
ness against him, but their wit-
ness agreed not together.
57 And there arose certain,
and bare false witness against
him, saying,
58 We heard him say, I will
destroy this temple that is made
with hands, and within three
days I will build another made
without hands. -
59 But neither so did their
witness agree together.
60 And the high priest stood
up in the midst, and asked Jesus,
.* Answerest thou nothing!
what is it which these witness
against thee '
61 But he held his peace, and
answered nothing. . Again the
high priest asked him, and said
unto #. Art thou the Christ,
the Son of the Blessed ?

his clothes, and saith, What

66 TI And as Peter was be-
neath in the palace, there com-
eth one of the maids of the
high priest :
67 And when she saw Peter
warming himself, she looked up-
on him, and said, And thou also
wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
68 But he denied, saying, I
know not, neither understand I
what thou sayest. And he went
out into the porch ; and the
cock crew.
69 And a maid saw him again,
and began to say to them that
stood by, This is one of them.
70 And he denied it again.
And a little after, they that stood
by said again to Peter, Surely
thou art one of them: for thou
art a Galilean, and thy speech
agreeth thereto.
71 But he began to curse and
to swear, saying, I know not
this man of whom ye speak.
72 And the second time the
cock crew. And Peter called to
mind, the word that Jesus said

twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
And when he thought thereon,
he wept,
