§ 41Mt. 23, 34.1Therefore, behold, I, the wisdom of God, am sending unto you prophets, and apostles, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall slay and crucify; and some of them ye shall beat in your synagogues, and persecute4 from city to2 city:Mt. 23, 35. that there may come on you all the blood of the righteous that hath been poured upon the ground,5 from the blood of Abel the pure to the blood of Zachariah the son of Barachiah, whom ye slew between the temple6 and the altar.3 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.7Mt. 23, 36.Mt. 23, 37.
Arabic, p. 1554O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, slayer of the prophets, and stoner of them that are sent unto her! how many times did I wish to gather thy children, as5 a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!Mt. 23, 38.Mt. 23, 39. Your house shall6 be left over you desolate. Verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
7And many of the rulers also believed on him;Jo. 12, 42.Jo. 12, 43.Jo. 12, 44.Jo. 12, 45.Jo. 12, 46.Jo. 12, 47. but because of the Pharisees they8 were not confessing him, lest they be put8 out of the synagogue: and they loved9 the praise of men more than the praising of God. And Jesus cried and said,10 Whosoever believeth in me, believeth not in me, but in him that sent me. And11 whosoever seeth me hath seen him that sent me. I am come a light9 into the12 world, and so every one that believeth in me abideth not in the darkness. And whosoever heareth my sayings, and keepeth them not, I judge him not: for I came13 not to judge the world, but to give the world life.10 Whosoever wrongeth11 me,Jo. 12, 48. and receiveth not my sayings, there is one that judgeth him: the word that I spake, it14 shall judge him at the last day. I from myself did not speak;Jo. 12, 49. but the Father which sent me, he hath given me commandment,12 what I should say, and what I15 should speak; and I know that his commandment is eternal life.Jo. 12, 50. The things that I say now, as my Father hath said unto me, even so I say.
16And when he said that unto them,Lk. 11, 53. the scribes and Pharisees began their evil-doing, being angry with him, and finding fault with his sayings, and harassing13 him17 in many things; seeking to catch something from his mouth,Lk. 11, 54. that they might be able to calumniate him.
18And when there gathered together myriads of great multitudes,Lk. 12, 1. which almost trode one upon another,Arabic, p. 156 Jesus began to say unto his disciples, Preserve yourselves19 from the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing20 concealed, that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known.Lk. 12, 2.Lk. 12, 3. Everything that ye have said in the darkness shall be heard in the light; and what ye have spoken secretly in the ears in the inner chambers shall be proclaimed on the roofs.
21, 22This said Jesus, and he went and hid himself from them.Jo. 12, 36b.Jo. 12, 37.Jo. 12, 38. But notwithstanding23 his having done all these signs before them, they believed not in him: that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, who said,
24And for this reason it is not possible for them to believe, because Isaiah also said,Jo. 12, 39.Jo. 12, 40.
26This said Isaiah when he saw his glory, and spake of him.Jo. 12, 41.Mt. 24, 1.Mk. 13, 1b.Lk. 21, 5b.Mt. 24, 2a.Lk. 19, 43a.Lk. 19, 44b.2Mk. 14, 1.Mk. 14, 2.
27And when Jesus went out of the temple, certain of his disciples came forward28 to shew1 him the buildings of the temple, and its beauty and greatness, and the strength of the stones that were laid in it, and the elegance of its building, and that29 it was adorned with noble stones and beautiful colours. Jesus answered and said30 unto them, See ye these great buildings? verily I say unto you, Days will come, when there shall not be left here a stone upon another, that shall not be cast down.
31And two days before3 the passover of unleavened bread, the chief priests and32 the scribes sought how they might take him by deceit,4 and kill him: and they said, It shall not be at the feast, lest the people be agitated.
33And when Jesus sat on the mount of Olives opposite the temple, his disciples,Mk. 13, 3. Simon Cephas and James and John and Andrew, came forward unto him,Lk. 21, 7b.Mt. 24, 3b.Mt. 24, 4a.Lk. 17, 22b.Mt. 24, 4b.Mt. 24, 5a.Lk. 21, 8b.Mk. 13, 6b.Lk. 21, 8c.Mk. 13, 7a.Mt. 24, [Editor: illegible character]bLk. 21, 9b.Mt. 24, 7a.Lk. 21, 11. and said unto him34 between themselves and him, Teacher, tell us when that shall be, and what is the sign35 of thy coming and the end of the world. Jesus answered and said unto them. Days will come, when ye shall long to see one of the days of the Son of36, 37 man, and shall not behold. Take heed lest any man lead you astray. Many shall38 come in my name, and say, I am the Messiah; and they shall say, The time is come39 near, and shall lead many astray: go not therefore after them. And when ye hear of wars and tidings of insurrections, see to it, be5 not agitated:Arabic, p. 157 for these things must40 first be; only the end is not yet come. Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom41 against kingdom: and great earthquakes shall be in one place and another, and there shall be famines and deaths and agitations; and there shall be fear and terror and great signs that6 shall appear from heaven, and there shall be great42, 43 storms. All these things are the beginning of travail.Mt. 24, 8.Lk. 21, 12. But before all of that, they shall lay hands upon you, and persecute you, and deliver you unto the synagogues44 and into prisons, and bring you before kings and judges for my name’s sake.Lk. 21, 13.Mk. 13, 10.Lk. 12, 11. And45 that shall be unto you for a witness. But first must my gospel be preached unto all46 nations. And when they bring you into the synagogues before the rulers and the authorities, be not anxious beforehand how ye shall answer for yourselves, or what ye47, 48 shall say: because it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit. Lay it to your heart,Mk. 13, 11b.Lk. 21, 14.Lk. 21, 15. not 49 to be anxious before the time what ye shall say: and I shall7 give you understanding and wisdom,8 which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay.Arabic, p. 15850 And then shall they deliver you unto constraint, and shall kill you:Mt. 24, 9.Mt. 24, 10.Lk. 21, 16. and ye shall be51 hated of all nations because of my name. And then shall many go astray,9 and they52 shall hate one another, and deliver one another unto death. And your parents, and your brethren, and your kinsfolk, and your friends shall deliver you up, and shall53, 54 slay some of you. But a lock of hair from your heads shall not perish.Lk. 21, 18.Lk. 21, 19.Mt. 24, 11.Mt. 24, 12. And by55 your patience ye shall gain10 your souls. And many men,11 false prophets, shall arise,56 and lead many astray. And because of the abounding of iniquity, the love of many 57shall wax cold. But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.Mt. 24, 13.Mt. 24, 14. And58 this, the1 gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in all the world for a testimony to all nations; and then shall come the end of all.
