And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples sayde vnto hym: Maister, see what stones, & what buildynges [are here.]
And Iesus aunswered, & sayde vnto hym: Seest thou these great buildynges?
There shall not be left one stone vpon another, that shall not be throwen downe.
And as he sate vpon the mount of Oliues, ouer agaynst the temple, Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and Andrewe, asked hym, secretely:
Tell vs, when shall these thynges be?
And what shalbe the signe when all these thynges shalbe fulfylled?
And Iesus aunswered them, and began to say: take heede, lest any man deceaue you.
For many shall come in my name, saying I am [Christe:] and shall deceaue many.
When ye shall heare of warres, and tidynges of warres, be ye not troubled: For such thynges must nedes be, but the ende is not yet.

And the Gospel must first be published among all nations.
But when they leade you, and present you, be not carefull aforehande, neither take thought what ye shall speake: but whatsoeuer is geuen you in the same houre, that speake ye.
For it is not ye that speake, but the holy ghost.
The brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the sonne: and the chyldren shall ryse agaynst their fathers and mothers, and shall put them to death.
And ye shalbe hated of all men for my names sake: But who so endureth vnto the ende, the same shalbe safe.
Moreouer, when ye see the abhomination of desolation, wherof is spoken by Daniel the prophete, stande where it ought not (let hym that readeth vnderstande) then let them that be in Iurie, flee to the mountaynes:
And let hym that is on ye house toppe, not go downe into the house, neither enter therin, to fetch any thyng out of his house.
And let hym that is in the fielde, not turne backe agayne vnto the thynges which he left behynde hym, for to take his garmente with hym.
Wo [shalbe] then to them that are with chylde, and to them that geue sucke in those dayes.
But pray ye that your flyght be not in the Wynter:
For there shalbe in those dayes such tribulation, as was not from the begynnyng of creatures, which God created, vnto this tyme, neither shalbe.
And except that the Lorde shoulde shorten [those] dayes, no fleshe shoulde be saued: But for the electes sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened [those] dayes.
And then, yf any man say to you, lo here is Christe, lo he is there, beleue not.
For false Christes, and false prophetes shall ryse, and shall shewe signes and wonders, to deceaue, yf it were possible, euen the elect.
But take ye heede: Beholde, I haue shewed you all thynges before.
Moreouer, in those dayes, after that tribulation, the sunne shall waxe darke, and the moone shall not geue her light.
And the starres of heauen, shall fall: and the powers which are in heauen, shalbe shaken.
And then shall they see the sonne of man commyng in the cloudes, with great power and glory.
And then shall he sende his Angels, and shall gather together his elect, from the foure wyndes, from the ende of the earth, to the vtmost part of heauen.
Learne a parable of the fygge tree.
When his braunche is yet tender, and hath brought foorth leaues, ye knowe that sommer is neare:
So ye in lyke maner, when ye see these thynges come to passe, vnderstand, that [he] is nye, euen at the doores.
Ueryly I say vnto you, that this generation shall not passe, tyll all these thynges be done.
Heauen and earth shall passe away, but my wordes shall not passe away.
But of that day and tyme knoweth no man: no not the Angels which are in heauen, neither the sonne him selfe, saue the father only.
Take heede, watche and pray: for ye knowe not when the tyme is.
As a man which is gone into a straunge countrey, and hath left his house, and geuen auctoritie to his seruauntes, and to euery man his worke, and commaunded the porter to watche:
Watche ye therfore, (for ye knowe not whe the maister of the house wyl come, at euen, or at mydnyght, whether at the cocke crowyng, or in the dawnyng.)
Lest yf he come sodenly, he fynde you slepyng.
And that I say vnto you, I say vnto all, watche.
