25And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth, tension among nations in perplexity at the sound the seas and waves; 26people fainting from fear and expectation of things which are coming upon the inhabited world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27And then they will see the son of man coming in clouds with power and great glory. 28And when these thing begin to happen, straighten yourself up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.”
29And he said a parable to them, “See the fig tree and all the trees. 30When already they put forth, because you see from yourselves, you know that already near is the summer. 31Thus also you, when you might see these things happen, you know that near is the Kingdom of God.
32“Amen, I say to you that this generation will absolutely not pass away until all these things happen. 33The heaven and the earth might pass away, but my word will absolutely not pass away.
34“And pay attention to yourselves lest your hearts might be weighed down in dissipation and drunkenness and cares of life, and that day might come upon you suddenly. 35For as a snare it will come upon everyone who dwells upon the face of the whole earth. 36And be awake at all times praying so that you might have strength to escape all these things must happen, and to stand before the son of man.”
