Matthew Chapters 16 & 24
16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired
him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will
be fair weather: for the sky is red.
16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is
red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky;
but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there
shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And
he left them, and departed.
16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had
forgotten to take bread.
16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have
taken no bread.
16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little
faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?
16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the
five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many
baskets ye took up?
16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you
concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees?
16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the
leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the
16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his
disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some,
Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of
the living God.
16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon
Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my
Father which is in heaven.
16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock
I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and
whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and
whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he
was Jesus the Christ.
16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how
that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and
chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third
16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far
from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan:
thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be
of God, but those that be of men.
16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will
lose his life for my sake shall find it.
16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and
lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his
angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall
not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from
the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings
of the temple.
24:2 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.
24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him
privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall
be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man
24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not
troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers
24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and
shall hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax
24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
24:14 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.
24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let
24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing
out of his house:
24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his
24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck
in those days!
24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the
24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there;
believe it not.
24:24 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.
24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert;
go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto
the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered
24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall
fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and
then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son
of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and
they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end
of heaven to the other.
24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it
is near, even at the doors.
24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all
these things be fulfilled.
24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass
24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only.
24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe
entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken,
and the other left.
24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
24:43 But know this, that if the goodman 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.
24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his
24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord
delayeth his coming;
24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink
with the drunken;
24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
