3 And as he sat on a the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, b Peter and James and John and c Andrew asked him d privately, 4 "Tell us, e when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?" 5 And Jesus began to say to them, f "See that no one leads you astray. 6 g Many will come in my name, saying, h 'I am he!' and they will lead many astray. 7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, i do not be alarmed. This j must take place, but the end is not yet. 8 For k nation will rise against nation, and l kingdom against kingdom. There will be m earthquakes in various places; there will be n famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.
9 o "But p be on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten q in synagogues, and you will stand before r governors and s kings for my sake, t to bear witness before them. 10 And the gospel must first be proclaimed u to all nations. 11 And when they bring you to trial and deliver you over, v do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say, but say w whatever is given you in that hour, x for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 y And brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. 13 z And you will be hated by all for my name's sake. a But the one who endures to the end will be saved.English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
