a For the children of Israel shall
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, | ed is he that cometh in the name of the and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city, xiv. 1, 2. 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 Judæa flee to the moun
tains, Mark xiii. 14. Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord, Luke xiii. 35. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation, xix. 43, 44. As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down, xxi. 6. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh, 20. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations, and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled, 24. And set up false witnesses which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law: For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us, Acts vi. 13, 14.
Λέγω γὰρ ὑμῖν· Οὐ μὴ μὲ ἴδητε ἀπ' ἄρτι, ἕως ἂν εἴπητε· Εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου.
For I say unto you, aYe shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, b Bless
abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days, Hos. iii. 4, 5. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Luke ii. 26— 30. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it, xvii. 22. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come, John viii. 21. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die
your sins for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins, 24. Your Father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad, 56. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? xiv. 9. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me because I live, ye shall live also, 19.

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for bio shew him the buildings of the temple.

MATT, XXIV. 1-3.
A. D. 33.
Blessed is he that cometh in the name a field, and Jerusalem shall become of the Lord, Matt. xxiii. 39. Be thou instructed O Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from thee; lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited, Jer. vi. 8. He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations, Ezek. viii. 6. Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them! Hos. ix. 12.
bAnd 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! 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, Mark xiii. 1, 2. And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down, Luke xxi. 5, 6.
Ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· Οὐ βλέπετε πάντα ταῦτα; ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, οὐ μὴ ἀφεθῇ ὧδε λίθος ἐπὶ λίθον, ὃς οὐ μὴ κατα· λυθήσεται.
And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
a Then will I cut off Israel out of
the land which I have given them ; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house, 1 Kings ix. 7, 8. Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be ploughed like
heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest, Jer. xxvi. 18. As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them. And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it. My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it, Ezek. vii. 20-22. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate, Dan. ix. 26, 27. Therefore shall Zion for your sake be ploughed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest, Mic. iii. 12. And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation, Luke xix. 44.
ἐλαιῶν, προσῆλθον αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ κατ ̓ Καθημένου δὲ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοῦ ὄρους τῶν ἰδίαν, λέγοντες· Εἶπε ἡμῖν, πότε ταῦτα έσται, καὶ τί τὸ σημεῖον τῆς σῆς παρουσίας, καὶ τῆς συντελείας τοῦ αἰῶνος ;
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, bTell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
a And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall
be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? Mark xiii. 3, 4.
bAnd one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river; when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my LORD, what shall be the end of these things? Dan. xii. 6-8. And they asked him saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? Luke xxi. 7. Peter seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me, John xxi. 21, 22. And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power, Acts i. 7. But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you, 1 Thess. v. 1.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors, ver. 32, 33. But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up, 43.

you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many, Mark xiii. 5, 6. For false Christ's and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect, 22. And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them, Luke xxi. 8. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light, 2 Cor. xi. 13, 14. That we henceforth be no more children tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, Eph. iv. 14. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience, v. 6. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 2 Thess. ii. 3. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not, 2 Pet. ii. 1-3.
Καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· loved, believe not every spirit, but Βλέπετε μήτις ὑμᾶς πλανήσῃ.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, a Take heed that no man deceive you.
a For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; 'Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of deceive you, you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye caused to be dreamed, Jer. xxix. 8. And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive
try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world, 1 John iv. 1.
Πολλοὶ γὰρ ἐλεύσονται ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου, λέγοντες· Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ Χριστός· καὶ πολλοὺς πλανίσουσι.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
a And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many, Matt. xi. 11. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect, 24. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran : I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied, Jer. xxiii. 21. I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed, 25. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive, John v. 43. For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. After this man rose up Judas of Galilee, in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him; he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed, Acts v. 36, 37. But there was a certain man, called Simon, which before-time in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God, viii. 9, 10.
Μελλήσετε δὲ ἀκούειν πολέμους, καὶ ἀκοὰς πολέμων· ὁρᾶτε μὴ προεῖσθε· δεῖ γὰρ πάντα γενέσθαι· ἀλλ ̓ οὔπω ἐστὶ τὸ τέλος.
And a ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubleď: ©for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
a Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled. Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients, Ezek. vii. 24-26. Or if I VOL. I.
A. D. 33.
bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that 1 cut off man and beast from it: Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves. Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast. Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righ teousness. For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? xiv. 17-21. 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. 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, Mark xiii. 7, 8. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by, Luke xxi. 9.
b The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident, Psal. xxvii. 1-3. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof, xlvi. 1-3. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD, cxii. 7. Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom the people shall 2 F
say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Isa. viii. 12-14. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation, xii. 2. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusted in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength, xxvi. 3, 4. Come, my people, enter thou into thychambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover
her slain, 20, 21. When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops. Although the fig-tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation, Hab. iii. 16-18. In your patience possess ye your souls, Luke xxi. 19. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me, John xiv. 1. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid, 27. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand, 2 Thess. ii. 2. But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the
A. D. 33.
Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear, 1 Pet. iii. 14, 15.
But how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Matt. xxvi. 54. For I say unto you, That this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors : for the things concerning me have an end, Luke xxii. 37. Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Cæsar: and, lo, God hath given thee all that sail with thee. Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island, Acts xxvii. 24-26.
d And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come, ver. 14.
Εγερθήσεται γὰς ἔθνος ἐπὶ ἔθνος, καὶ βασιλεία ἐπὶ βασιλείαν· καὶ ἔσονται λιμοί καὶ λοιμοὶ, καὶ σεισμοὶ κατὰ τόπους.
For a nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom : and there shall be b famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
a And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city; for God did vex them with all adversity, 2 Chron. xv. 6. Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still, Isa. ix. 19-21. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom, xix. 2. Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth:
