And I will overthrow the throne of
The earth is utterly broken down,

and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven, Luke xxi. 11. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity'; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken, 25, 26. And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come, Acts ii. 19, 20. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Cæsar,
Πάντα δὲ ταῦτα ἀρχὴ ὠδίνων.
And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain : for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate. And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me; Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant; and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. And 2F2
when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied. And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury: and I, even I, will chas. tise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat, Lev. xxvi. 18-29. Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance, Deut. xxviii. 59. The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still, Isa. ix. 12. Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evil doer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still, 17. 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, 21. Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this bis anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still, x. 4. when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape, 1 Thess. v. 3. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Pet. iv. 17, 18.
A. D. 33.
Καὶ τότε σκανδαλισθήσονται πολλοὶ, καὶ ἀλλήλους παραδώσουσι, καὶ μισήσουσιν ἀλλήλους.
And then shall many be offended, and shall b betray one another, and shall hate one another.
a This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes, 2 Tim. i. 15. For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia, iv. 10. At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge, 16. See also on chap. xi. ver.

And a many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Καὶ διὰ τὸ πληθυνθῆναι τὴν ἀνομίαν, ψυγήσεται ἡ ἀγάπη τῶν πολλῶν.
And because iniquity shall abound, b the love of many shall wax cold.
a From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God, Jam. iv. 1-4. Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your
gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you, v. 1--6.

unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned, Mark xvi. 15, 16. And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem, Luke xxiv. 47. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth, Acts i. 8. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world, Rom. x. 18. For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient by word and deed, Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the Gospel of Christ. Yea, so have 1 strived to preach the Gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation: But as it is written, To whom he was not ̔Ο δὲ ὑπομείνας εἰς τέλος, οὗτος σωθή- spoken of, they shall see: and they
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent, Rev. ii. 4, 5. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth, iii. 15, 16.
But he that shall endure unto the end the same shall be saved.

And this Gospel of the kingdom b shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
a See on chap. iv. ver. 23. clause 3. b And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matt. xxviii. 18-20. And he said
Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith, xvi. 25, 26. Which is come unto you as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth, Col. i. 6. If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the Gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister, 23.

σεως, τὸ ῥηθὲν διὰ Δανιὴλ τοῦ προφήτου, | thyself before thy God, thy words ἐστὼς ἐν τόπῳ ἁγίῳ· (ὁ ἀναγινώσκων were heard, and I am come for thy νοείτω·)
When a ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, b spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
a But when ye shall see the abomi nation 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 mountains, Mark xiii. 14. 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, Luke xix. 43. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh, xxi. 20.
b 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. 27. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days, xii. 11.
And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel, Ezek. xl. 4. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding, Dan. ix. 22. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times, 25. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten
words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and the chief princes, came to help me; twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befal thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days, x. 12-14. Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip, Heb. ii. 1. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand, Rev. i. 3. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches, iii. 22.
Τότε οἱ ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ φευγέτωσαν ἐπὶ τὰ ёрно
Then a let them which be in Judæu flee into the mountains :
a He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field, Exod. ix. 20,21. A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished, Prov. xxii. 3. Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out: and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled, Luke xxi. 21, 22. By faith Noe, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith, Heb. xi. 7.
Ὁ ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος, μὴ καταβαινέτω gai ri ix Tñç oixías aŭriữ•
Let him that is on the house-top not come down to take any thing out of his house:
a What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the house-top, Matt. x. 27. When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence, Deut. xxii. 8. 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, Mark xiii. 15.

den their own children: they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people, 10. Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up, Hos. xiii. 16. But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! and pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, Mark xiii. 17, 18. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people, Luke xxi. 23. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never suck. Then shall they begin to say bare, and the paps which never gave to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us, xxiii. 29, 30.
Προσεύχεσθε δὲ ἵνα μὴ γένηται ἡ φυγὴ ὑμῶν χειμῶνος, μηδὲ ἐν σαββάτῳ.
But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, aneither on the sabbath day:
a See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day, Exod. xvi. 29. Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's jour
a And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lonp | thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the strait-ney, Acts i. 12. ness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. The tender and delicate woman among | you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, Deut. xxviii. 53-56. Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness. The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them, Lam. iv. 3, 4. The hands of the pitiful women have sod

For athen shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
a Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake. Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them. Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents: For they persecute him whom thou hast smit
