Luke 21 (WEBP)

[1] He looked up and saw the rich people who were putting their gifts into the treasury.
[2] He saw a certain poor widow casting in two small brass coins.°
[3] He said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow put in more than all of them,
[4] for all these put in gifts for God from their abundance, but she, out of her poverty, put in all that she had to live on.”
[5] As some were talking about the temple and how it was decorated with beautiful stones and gifts, he said,
[6] “As for these things which you see, the days will come in which there will not be left here one stone on another that will not be thrown down.”
[7] They asked him, “Teacher, so when will these things be? What is the sign that these things are about to happen?”
[8] He said, “Watch out that you don’t get led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he§,’ and, ‘The time is at hand.’ Therefore don’t follow them.
[9] When you hear of wars and disturbances, don’t be terrified, for these things must happen first, but the end won’t come immediately.”
[10] Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
[11] There will be great earthquakes, famines, and plagues in various places. There will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
[12] But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you up to synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for my name’s sake.
[13] It will turn out as a testimony for you.
[14] Settle it therefore in your hearts not to meditate beforehand how to answer,
[15] for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to withstand or to contradict.
[16] You will be handed over even by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends. They will cause some of you to be put to death.
[17] You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake.
[18] And not a hair of your head will perish.
[19] “By your endurance you will win your lives.
[20] “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is at hand.
[21] Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let those who are in the middle of her depart. Let those who are in the country not enter therein.
[22] For these are days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
[23] Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who nurse infants in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath to this people.
[24] They will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
[25] “There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and on the earth anxiety of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the waves;
[26] men fainting for fear and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
[27] Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
[28] But when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.”
[29] He told them a parable. “See the fig tree and all the trees.
[30] When they are already budding, you see it and know by your own selves that the summer is already near.
[31] Even so you also, when you see these things happening, know that God’s Kingdom is near.
[32] Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things are accomplished.
[33] Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.
[34] “So be careful, or your hearts will be loaded down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day will come on you suddenly.
[35] For it will come like a snare on all those who dwell on the surface of all the earth.
[36] Therefore be watchful all the time, praying that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
[37] Every day Jesus was teaching in the temple, and every night he would go out and spend the night on the mountain that is called Olivet.
[38] All the people came early in the morning to him in the temple to hear him.

Luke 21:2 literally, “two lepta.” 2 lepta was about 1% of a day’s wages for an agricultural laborer.
Luke 21:8 or, I AM

Luke 21 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 he looked up G308 (AorActPtc), and saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) the rich men G4145 casting G906 (PresActPtc) their G846 gifts G1435 into G1519 the treasury G1049.
[2] And G1161 he saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) also G2532 a certain G5100 poor G3998 widow G5503 casting G906 (PresActPtc) in thither G1563 two G1417 mites G3016.
[3] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Of a truth G230 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, that G3754 this G3778 poor G4434 widow G5503 hath cast G906 (Aor2ActInd) in more than G4119 they all G3956:
[4] For G1063 all G537 these G3778 have of G1537 their G846 abundance G4052 (PresActPtc) cast G906 (Aor2ActInd) in unto G1519 the offerings G1435 of God G2316: but G1161 she G3778 G846 of G1537 her G846 penury G5303 hath cast G906 (Aor2ActInd) in all G537 the living G979 that G3739 she had G2192 (ImpfActInd).
[5] And G2532 as some G5100 spake G3004 (PresActPtc) of G4012 the temple G2411, how G3754 it was adorned G2885 (PerfPasInd) with goodly G2570 stones G3037 and G2532 gifts G334, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd),
[6] [As for] these things G5023 which G3739 ye behold G2334 (PresActInd), the days G2250 will come G2064 (FutMidDepInd), in G1722 the which G3739 there shall G863 not G3756 be left G863 (FutPasInd) one stone G3037 upon G1909 another G3037, that G3739 shall G2647 not G3756 be thrown down G2647 (FutPasInd).
[7] And G1161 they asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G1320, but G3767 when G4219 shall G2071 these things G5023 be G2071 (FutInd)? and G2532 what G5101 sign G4592 [will there be] when G3752 these things G5023 shall G3195 (PresActSubj) come to pass G1096 (PresMidPasDepInf)?
[8] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Take heed G991 (PresActImpr) that ye be G4105 not G3361 deceived G4105 (AorPasSubj): for G1063 many G4183 shall come G2064 (FutMidDepInd) in G1909 my G3450 name G3686, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), G3754 I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) [Christ]; and G2532 the time G2540 draweth near G1448 (PerfActInd): go ye G4198 (AorPasDepSubj) not G3361 therefore G3767 after G3694 them G846.
[9] But G1161 when G3752 ye shall hear G191 (AorActSubj) of wars G4171 and G2532 commotions G181, be G4422 not G3361 terrified G4422 (AorPasSubj): for G1063 these things G5023 must G1163 (PresInd) first G4412 come to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf); but G235 the end G5056 [is] not G3756 by and by G2112.
[10] Then G5119 said he G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846, Nation G1484 shall rise G1453 (FutPasInd) against G1909 nation G1484, and G2532 kingdom G932 against G1909 kingdom G932:
[11] And G5037 great G3173 earthquakes G4578 shall be G2071 (FutInd) in G2596 divers places G5117, and G2532 famines G3042, and G2532 pestilences G3061; and G5037 fearful sights G5400 and G2532 great G3173 signs G4592 shall there be G2071 (FutInd) from G575 heaven G3772.
[12] But G1161 before G4253 all G537 these G5130, they shall lay G1911 (FutActInd) their G846 hands G5495 on G1909 you G5209, and G2532 persecute G1377 (FutActInd) [you], delivering G3860 (PresActPtc) [you] up G1519 to the synagogues G4864, and G2532 into prisons G5438, being brought G71 (PresPasPtc) before G1909 kings G935 and G2532 rulers G2232 for G1752 my G3450 name’s G3686 sake G1752.
[13] And G1161 it shall turn G576 (FutMidDepInd) to you G5213 for G1519 a testimony G3142.
[14] Settle G5087 (Aor2MidImpr) [it] therefore G3767 in G1519 your G5216 hearts G2588, not G3361 to meditate before G4304 (PresActInf) what ye shall answer G626 (AorPasDepInf):
[15] For G1063 I G1473 will give G1325 (FutActInd) you G5213 a mouth G4750 and G2532 wisdom G4678, which G3739 all G3956 your G5213 adversaries G480 (PresMidPasDepPtc) shall G1410 not G3756 be able G1410 (FutMidDepInd) to gainsay G471 (Aor2ActInf) nor G3761 resist G436 (Aor2ActInf).
[16] And G1161 ye shall be betrayed G3860 (FutPasInd) both G2532 by G5259 parents G1118, and G2532 brethren G80, and G2532 kinsfolks G4773, and G2532 friends G5384; and G2532 [some] of G1537 you G5216 shall they cause to be put to death G2289 (FutActInd).
[17] And G2532 ye shall be G2071 (FutInd) hated G3404 (PresPasPtc) of G5259 all G3956 [men] for G1223 my G3450 name’s sake G3686.
[18] But G2532 there shall not G3364 an hair G2359 of G1537 your G5216 head G2776 perish G622 (Aor2MidSubj).
[19] In G1722 your G5216 patience G5281 possess ye G2932 (AorMidDepImpr) your G5216 souls G5590.
[20] And G1161 when G3752 ye shall see G1492 (Aor2ActSubj) Jerusalem G2419 compassed G2944 (PresPasPtc) with G5259 armies G4760, then G5119 know G1097 (Aor2ActImpr) that G3754 the desolation G2050 thereof G846 is nigh G1448 (PerfActInd).
[21] Then G5119 let them G5343 which are in G1722 Judaea G2449 flee G5343 (PresActImpr) to G1519 the mountains G3735; and G2532 let them G1633 which are in G1722 the midst G3319 of it G846 depart out G1633 (PresActImpr); and G2532 let G1525 not G3361 them that are in G1722 the countries G5561 enter G1525 (PresMidPasDepImpr) thereinto G1519 G846.
[22] For G3754 these G3778 be G1526 (PresInd) the days G2250 of vengeance G1557, that all things G3956 which G3588 are written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) may be fulfilled G4137 (AorPasInf).
[23] But G1161 woe G3759 unto G1722 them that are with child G1064 G2192 (PresActPtc), and G2532 to them that give suck G2337 (PresActPtc), in G1722 those G1565 days G2250! for G1063 there shall be G2071 (FutInd) great G3173 distress G318 in G1909 the land G1093, and G2532 wrath G3709 upon G1722 this G5129 people G2992.
[24] And G2532 they shall fall G4098 (FutMidPasDepInd) by the edge G4750 of the sword G3162, and G2532 shall be led away captive G163 (FutPasInd) into G1519 all G3956 nations G1484: and G2532 Jerusalem G2419 shall be G2071 (FutInd) trodden down G3961 (PresPasPtc) of G5259 the Gentiles G1484, until G891 the times G2540 of the Gentiles G1484 be fulfilled G4137 (AorPasSubj).
[25] And G2532 there shall be G2071 (FutInd) signs G4592 in G1722 the sun G2246, and G2532 in the moon G4582, and G2532 in the stars G798; and G2532 upon G1909 the earth G1093 distress G4928 of nations G1484, with G1722 perplexity G640; the sea G2281 and G2532 the waves G4535 roaring G2278 (PresActPtc);
[26] Men’s G444 hearts failing them G674 (PresActPtc) for G575 fear G5401, and G2532 for looking after G4329 those things which are coming on G1904 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the earth G3625: for G1063 the powers G1411 of heaven G3772 shall be shaken G4531 (FutPasInd).
[27] And G2532 then G5119 shall they see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) the Son G5207 of man G444 coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1722 a cloud G3507 with G3326 power G1411 and G2532 great G4183 glory G1391.
[28] And G1161 when these things G5130 begin G756 (PresMidPtc) to come to pass G1096 (PresMidPasDepInf), then look up G352 (AorActImpr), and G2532 lift up G1869 (AorActImpr) your G5216 heads G2776; for G1360 your G5216 redemption G629 draweth nigh G1448 (PresActInd).
[29] And G2532 he spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to them G846 a parable G3850; Behold G1492 (Aor2ActImpr) the fig tree G4808, and G2532 all G3956 the trees G1186;
[30] When G3752 they now G2235 shoot forth G4261 (Aor2ActSubj), ye see G991 (PresActPtc) and know G1097 (PresActInd) of G575 your own selves G1438 that G3754 summer G2330 is G2076 (PresInd) now G2235 nigh at hand G1451.
[31] So G3779 likewise G2532 ye G5210, when G3752 ye see G1492 (Aor2ActSubj) these things G5023 come to pass G1096 (PresMidPasDepPtc), know ye G1097 (PresActImpr) that G3754 the kingdom G932 of God G2316 is G2076 (PresInd) nigh at hand G1451.
[32] Verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 This G3778 generation G1074 shall G3928 not G3364 pass away G3928 (Aor2ActSubj), G302 till G2193 all G3956 be fulfilled G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj).
[33] Heaven G3772 and G2532 earth G1093 shall pass away G3928 (FutMidDepInd): but G1161 my G3450 words G3056 shall G3928 not G3364 pass away G3928 (Aor2ActSubj).
[34] And G1161 take heed G4337 (PresActImpr) to yourselves G1438, lest at any time G3379 your G5216 hearts G2588 be overcharged G925 (AorPasSubj) with G1722 surfeiting G2897, and G2532 drunkenness G3178, and G2532 cares G3308 of this life G982, and G2532 [so] that G1565 day G2250 come G2186 (Aor2ActSubj) upon G1909 you G5209 unawares G160.
[35] For G1063 as G5613 a snare G3803 shall it come G1904 (FutMidDepInd) on G1909 all G3956 them that dwell G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc) on G1909 the face G4383 of the whole G3956 earth G1093.
[36] Watch ye G69 (PresActImpr) therefore G3767, and pray G1189 (PresMidPasDepPtc) always G1722 G3956 G2540, that G2443 ye may be accounted worthy G2661 (AorPasSubj) to escape G1628 (Aor2ActInf) all G3956 these things G5023 that shall G3195 (PresActPtc) come to pass G1096 (PresMidPasDepInf), and G2532 to stand G2476 (AorPasInf) before G1715 the Son G5207 of man G444.
[37] And G1161 in the day time G2250 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) teaching G1321 (PresActPtc) in G1722 the temple G2411; and G1161 at night G3571 he went out G1831 (PresMidPasDepPtc), and abode G835 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) in G1519 the mount G3735 that is called G2564 (PresPasPtc) [the mount] of Olives G1636.
[38] And G2532 all G3956 the people G2992 came early in the morning G3719 (ImpfActInd) to G4314 him G846 in G1722 the temple G2411, for to hear G191 (PresActInf) him G846.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 21 (YLT)

[1] And having looked up, he saw those who did cast their gifts to the treasury-rich men,
[2] and he saw also a certain poor widow casting there two mites,
[3] and he said, ‘Truly I say to you, that this poor widow did cast in more than all;
[4] for all these out of their superabundance did cast into the gifts to God, but this one out of her want, all the living that she had, did cast in.’
[5] And certain saying about the temple, that with goodly stones and devoted things it hath been adorned, he said,
[6] ‘These things that ye behold-days will come, in which there shall not be left a stone upon a stone, that shall not be thrown down.’
[7] And they questioned him, saying, ‘Teacher, when, then, shall these things be? and what is the sign when these things may be about to happen?’
[8] And he said, ‘See-ye may not be led astray, for many shall come in my name, saying-I am he, and the time hath come nigh; go not on then after them;
[9] and when ye may hear of wars and uprisings, be not terrified, for it behoveth these things to happen first, but the end is not immediately.’
[10] Then said he to them, ‘Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom,
[11] great shakings also in every place, and famines, and pestilences, there shall be; fearful things also, and great signs from heaven there shall be;
[12] and before all these, they shall lay on you their hands, and persecute, delivering up to synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake;
[13] and it shall become to you for a testimony.
[14] ‘Settle, then, to your hearts, not to meditate beforehand to reply,
[15] for I will give to you a mouth and wisdom that all your opposers shall not be able to refute or resist.
[16] ‘And ye shall be delivered up also by parents, and brothers, and kindred, and friends, and they shall put of you to death;
[17] and ye shall be hated by all because of my name-
[18] and a hair out of your head shall not perish;
[19] in your patience possess ye your souls.
[20] ‘And when ye may see Jerusalem surrounded by encampments, then know that come nigh did her desolation;
[21] then those in Judea, let them flee to the mountains; and those in her midst, let them depart out; and those in the countries, let them not come in to her;
[22] because these are days of vengeance, to fulfil all things that have been written.
[23] ‘And woe to those with child, and to those giving suck, in those days; for there shall be great distress on the land, and wrath on this people;
[24] and they shall fall by the mouth of the sword, and shall be led captive to all the nations, and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by nations, till the times of nations be fulfilled.
[25] ‘And there shall be signs in sun, and moon, and stars, and on the land is distress of nations with perplexity, sea and billow roaring;
[26] men fainting at heart from fear, and expectation of the things coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
[27] ‘And then they shall see the Son of Man, coming in a cloud, with power and much glory;
[28] and these things beginning to happen bend yourselves back, and lift up your heads, because your redemption doth draw nigh.’
[29] And he spake a simile to them: ‘See the fig-tree, and all the trees,
[30] when they may now cast forth, having seen, of yourselves ye know that now is the summer nigh;
[31] so also ye, when ye may see these things happening, ye know that near is the reign of God;
[32] verily I say to you-This generation may not pass away till all may have come to pass;
[33] the heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words may not pass away.
[34] ‘And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts may be weighed down with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day may come on you,
[35] for as a snare it shall come on all those dwelling on the face of all the land,
[36] watch ye, then, in every season, praying that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are about to come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.’
[37] And he was during the days in the temple teaching, and during the nights, going forth, he was lodging at the mount called of Olives;
[38] and all the people were coming early unto him in the temple to hear him.
