    [1] 2881

    2881 Luke xxi. 20.

    But when ye see Jerusalem with the army compassing it about, then know that [2] its desolation is come near.  2882

    2882 Luke xxi. 21.

    Those then that are in Judæa at that time shall flee to the mountain; and those that are within her shall flee; and those that are in the [3] villages shall not enter her.  2883

    2883 Luke xxi. 22.

    For these days are the days of vengeance, that all that [4] is written may be fulfilled.  2884

    2884 Matt. xxiv. 15.

    And when ye see the unclean sign of desolation,2885

    2885 So Vat. ms., following the Peshitta.  Ciasca follows Borg. ms., which by a change of diacritical points has the hardly grammatical reading, see that it is the desolation, the unclean thing spoken of.  Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary supports Vat. ms.

    spoken of in Daniel the prophet, standing in the pure place, he that readeth shall understand, [5, 6] 2886

    2886 Matt. xxiv. 16.

    and then he that is in Judæa shall flee in to the mountain2887

    Woe to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! there shall be great [9] distress in the land, and wrath against this nation2890

    2890 Luke xxi. 24.

    And they shall fall on the edge of the sword,2891

    2891 This word has a Syriac meaning given to it.  In Arabic it means war.

    and shall be taken captive to every land:  and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the nations, until the times of the nations be ended.

    [10] 2892

    2892 Mark xiii. 21.

    Then if any man say unto you, The Messiah is here; or, Lo, he is there; believe [11] him not:  2893

    2893 Matt. xxiv. 24.

    there shall rise then false Messiahs and prophets of lying, and shall do signs and wonders, in order that they may lead astray even the elect also, if they [12] be able.  2894

    2894 Mark xiii. 23.

    But as for you, beware:  for I have acquainted you with everything [13] beforehand.  2895

    2895 Matt. xxiv. 26.

    If then they say unto you, Lo, he is in the desert; go not out, lest ye [14] be taken:  and if they say unto you, Lo, he is in the chamber; believe not.  2896

    Pray therefore that your flight be not in winter, nor on a sabbath:  [17] 2900

    2900 Matt. xxiv. 21.

    there shall be then great tribulation,2901

    2901 Same Arabic (and Syriac) word as in § 41, 50.

    the like of which there hath not been from the [18] beginning of the world till now, nor shall be.  2902

    2902 Mark xiii. 20.

    And except the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would have lived:  but because of the elect, whom he elected, [19] he shortened those days.  2903

    2903 Luke xxi. 25.

    And there shall be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and upon the earth affliction2904

    2904 Same Arabic (and Syriac) word as in § 41, 50.

    2907 Mark xiii. 24a; Matt. xxiv. 29.

    And in those days, straightway after the distress of those days, the sun shall become dark, and the moon shall not shew its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers [22] of heaven shall be convulsed:  2908

    2908 Matt. xxiv. 30.

    and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:  and at that time all the tribes of the earth shall wail, and look unto the Son [23] of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and much glory2909

    2909 Matt. xxiv. 31.

    And he shall send his angels with the great trumpet, and they shall gather his elect from the four [24] winds, from one end of heaven to the other.2910

    2910 Lit. the end of heaven unto its end.


    2911 Luke xxi. 28.

    But when these things begin to be, be of good cheer, and lift up your heads; for your salvation2912

    2912 Or, deliverance.

    is come near.

    [25] 2913

    2913 Matt. xxiv. 32.

    Learn the example of the fig tree:  when it letteth down its branches,2914

    and putteth [26] forth its leaves, ye know that the summer is come; 2915

    Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, until all these [28] things shall be.  2917

    for it is as a shock that shocks all the inhabitants that are on the [31] face of the whole earth2921

    2921 Luke xxi. 36.

    Watch at all times, and pray, that ye may be worthy to escape [Arabic, p. 161] from all the things that are to be, and that ye may stand before the Son of [32] man.  2922

    2922 Mark xiii. 32.

    Of that day and of that hour hath no man learned, not even the angels [33] of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father2923

    2923 Mark xiii. 33.

    See ye, and watch and pray:  for ye know [34] not when that time will be2924

    2924 Mark xiii. 34.

    Be wakeful then:2926

    2926 cf. § 9, 21.

    lest he come unexpectedly, and find you sleeping.  [37] 2928

    2932 Luke xvii. 28.

    And as it was in the days of Lot; they were eating and drinking, and selling [42] and buying, and planting and building, 2933

    2938 Luke xvii. 32.

    Remember Lot’s [46] wife2939

    2939 Luke xvii. 33.

    Be attentive now:  for ye know not at what hour your Lord cometh.  2945

    2945 Matt. xxiv. 43.
