Mark 13:3 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew were questioning Him privately,

Mark 13:8 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
Mark 13:9 "But be on your guard; for they will deliver you to the courts, and you will be flogged in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them.
Mark 13:10 The gospel must first be preached to all the nations.
Mark 13:11 When they arrest you and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour; for it is not you who speak, but it is the Holy Spirit.
Mark 13:12 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and have them put to death.

Mark 13:15 The one who is on the housetop must not go down, or go in to get anything out of his house;
Mark 13:16 and the one who is in the field must not turn back to get his coat.
Mark 13:17 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
Mark 13:18 But pray that it may not happen in the winter.
Mark 13:19 For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will.
Mark 13:20 Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
Mark 13:21 And then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ'; or, 'Behold, He is there'; do not believe him;
Mark 13:22 for false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
Mark 13:23 But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.
Mark 13:24 "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light,
Mark 13:25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
Mark 13:26 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
Mark 13:27 And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.

Mark 13:29 Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door.
Mark 13:30 Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.
Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
Mark 13:32 But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
Mark 13:33 "Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.
Mark 13:34 It is like a man away on a journey, who upon leaving his house and putting his slaves in charge, assigning to each one his task, also commanded the doorkeeper to stay on the alert.
Mark 13:35 Therefore, be on the alert"for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning"
Mark 13:36 in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep.
Mark 13:37 What I say to you I say to all, 'Be on the alert! '"

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. (kjv) Mark 13:32 But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.

Mark 13:34 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 every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Mark 13:34 ὡς ἄνθρωπος ἀπόδημος ἀφεὶς τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ δοὺς τοῖς δούλοις αὐτοῦ τὴν ἐξουσίαν, ἑκάστῳ τὸ ἔργον αὐτοῦ, καὶ τῶ θυρωρῶ ἐνετείλατο ἵνα γρηγορῇ.
Mark 13 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 (kjv) Mark 13:35 Therefore, be on the alert"for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning" Mark 13:35 γρηγορεῖτε οὗν, οὐκ οἴδατε γὰρ πότε ὁ κύριος τῆς οἰκίας ἔρχεται, ἢ ὀψὲ ἢ μεσονύκτιον ἢ ἀλεκτοροφωνίας ἢ πρωΐ,
Mark 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. (kjv) Mark 13:36 in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep. Mark 13:36 μὴ ἐλθὼν ἐξαίφνης εὕρῃ ὑμᾶς καθεύδοντας.
Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.(kjv) Mark 13:37 What I say to you I say to all, 'Be on the alert! '" Mark 13:37 ὃ δὲ ὑμῖν λέγω, πᾶσιν λέγω, γρηγορεῖτε.
