[1] 28812881    Luke xxi. 20.But when ye see Jerusalem with the army compassing it about, then know that [2] its desolation is come near.  28822882    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.  28832883    Luke xxi. 22.For these days are the days of vengeance, that all that [4] is written may be fulfilled.  28842884    Matt. xxiv. 15.And when ye see the unclean sign of desolation,28852885    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] 28862886    Matt. xxiv. 16.and then he that is in Judæa shall flee in to the mountain:  28872887    Mark xiii. 15.and let him that is on the [7] roof not go down, nor enter in to take anything from his house:  28882888    Mark xiii. 16.and let him that is in [8] [Arabic, p. 159] the field not turn behind him to take his garment.  28892889    Luke xxi. 23.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 nation.  28902890    Luke xxi. 24.And they shall fall on the edge of the sword,28912891    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.

[20] [Arabic, p. 160] of the noise of the sea, and an earthquake:  29062906    Luke xxi. 26a.the souls of men shall [21] go forth from fear of that which is to come upon the earth.  29072907    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:  29082908    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 glory.  29092909    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.29102910    Lit. the end of heaven unto its end.  29112911    Luke xxi. 28.But when these things begin to be, be of good cheer, and lift up your heads; for your salvation29122912    Or, deliverance. is come near.

[25] 29132913    Matt. xxiv. 32.Learn the example of the fig tree:  when it letteth down its branches,29142914    cf. Peshitta, which text the translator seems to have misread. and putteth [26] forth its leaves, ye know that the summer is come; 29152915    Matt. xxiv. ye also, when ye see these things begun to be, know ye that the kingdom of God hath arrived at the [27] door.  29162916    Matt. xxiv. 34.Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, until all these [28] things shall be.  29172917    Matt. xxiv. 35.Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my sayings shall not pass away.

[29] 29182918    Luke xxi. 34.Take heed to yourselves, that your hearts become not heavy with inordinate desire,29192919    cf. Peshitta. and drunkenness, and the care of the world at any time, and that day come 109[30] upon you suddenly:  29202920    Luke xxi. 35.for it is as a shock that shocks all the inhabitants that are on the [31] face of the whole earth.  29212921    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.  29222922    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 Father.  29232923    Mark xiii. 33.See ye, and watch and pray:  for ye know [34] not when that time will be29242924    Mark xiii. 34.It is as a man, who journeyed, and left his house, and gave his authority to his servants, and appointed every man to his work, and [35] charged the porter to be wakeful.  29252925    Mark xiii. 35.Be wakeful then:29262926    cf. § 9, 21.  since ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, in the evening, or in the middle of the night, or when the [36] cock croweth, or in the morning; 29272927    Mark xiii. 36.lest he come unexpectedly, and find you sleeping.  [37] 29282928    Mark xiii. 37.The thing that I say unto you, unto all of you do I say it, Be ye watchful.

[38] 29292929    Matt. xxiv. 37.For as it was in the days of Noah, so shall the coming of the Son of man be.  [39] 29302930    Matt. xxiv. 38.As they were before the flood eating and drinking, and taking wives, and giving [40] wives to men, 29312931    Matt. xxiv. 39.until the day in which Noah entered into the ark, and they perceived not till the flood came, and took them all; so shall the coming of the Son of man [41] be.  29322932    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, 29332933    Luke xvii. 29.on the day in which Lot went out from Sodom, and the Lord rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them [43, 44] all:  29342934    Luke xvii. shall it be in the day in which the Son of man is revealed.29352935    Or, appeareth.  29362936    Luke xvii. 31.And in that day, whosoever is on the roof, and his garments29372937    cf. § 14, 24 note. in the house, let him not go down to [45] take them:  and he that is in the field shall not turn behind him.  29382938    Luke xvii. 32.Remember Lot’s [46] wife.  29392939    Luke xvii. 33.Whosoever shall desire to save his life shall destroy it:  but whosoever shall [47] destroy his life shall save it.  29402940    Luke xvii. 34.Verily I say unto you, In that night there shall be two on [48] [Arabic, p. 162] one bed; one shall be taken, and another left.  29412941    Luke xvii. 35.And two women shall be grinding [49] at one mill; one shall be taken, and another left.  29422942    Luke xvii. 36.And two shall be in the [50] field; one shall be taken, and another left.  29432943    Luke xvii. 37.They answered and said unto him, To what place, our Lord?  He said unto them, Where the body is, there will the eagles [51, 52] gather.  29442944    Matt. xxiv. 42.Be attentive now:  for ye know not at what hour your Lord cometh.  29452945    Matt. xxiv. 43.Know this:  if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have been attentive, and would not make it possible that his house should be [53] broken through.  29462946    Matt. xxiv. 44.Therefore be ye also ready:  for in the hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh.
