Then came to him [Jesus WU] certain [some] of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him, LK 20:27 Saying, Master [Teacher], Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto [children for] his brother. LK 20:28 There were therefore seven brethren [brothers]: and the first took a wife, and died without children. LK 20:29 And the second took her to [as] wife, and he died childless. LK 20:30 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died. LK 20:31 Last of all the woman died also. LK 20:32 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife. LK 20:33 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: LK 20:34 But they which shall be accounted [considered] worthy to obtain [take part in WU] that world [age], and the resurrection from the dead, [will WU] neither marry, nor are [be WU] given in marriage: LK 20:35 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. LK 20:36 Now [concerning WU] that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at [in the passage about WU] the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. LK 20:37 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto [are alive to] him. LK 20:38 Then certain of the scribes [experts in the law WU] answering said, Master [Teacher], thou hast well said [spoken well]. LK 20:39
And after that they durst [dared] not ask him any question at all. LK 20:40
And he [Jesus WU] said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son? LK 20:41 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on [at] my right hand, LK 20:42 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. LK 20:43 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son? LK 20:44
Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples, LK 20:45 Beware of the scribes [experts in the law WU], which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest [best] seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms [best places] at feasts; LK 20:46 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation [punishment WU]. LK 20:47
And he [Jesus WU] looked up, and saw the rich men casting [putting] their gifts into the treasury. LK 21:1 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites [small copper coins WU]. LK 21:2 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: LK 21:3 For all these have of [from] their abundance cast in unto the offerings of [for] God: but she of her penury [poverty] hath cast in all the living that she had [all that she had to live on]. LK 21:4
And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he [Jesus WU] said, LK 21:5 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. LK 21:6 And they asked him, saying, Master [Teacher], but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall [are about to] come to pass? LK 21:7 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. LK 21:8 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by [won't come immediately]. LK 21:9 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: LK 21:10 And great earthquakes shall be in divers [various] places, and famines, and pestilences [plagues]; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. LK 21:11 But before all these [things], they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake [because of my name WU]. LK 21:12 And it shall turn to you for a testimony [turn out that you will be a testimony to them WU]. LK 21:13 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before[hand] what ye shall answer [to defense yourselves WU]: LK 21:14 For I will give you a mouth [words] and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay [contradict] nor resist. LK 21:15 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren [brothers], and kinsfolks [relatives], and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. LK 21:16 And ye shall be hated of [by] all men for my name's sake [because of me WU]. LK 21:17 But there shall not an [a] hair of your head perish. LK 21:18 In [by] your patience [endurance] possess ye your souls [you will gain life WU]. LK 21:19 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed [surrounded] with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh [near]. LK 21:20 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it [the city WU] depart out; and let not them that are in the countries [country] enter thereinto [into the city WU]. LK 21:21 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. LK 21:22 But woe unto them that are with child [pregnant], and to them that give suck [nurse infants], in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. LK 21:23 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden [trampled] down of [by] the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. LK 21:24 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; LK 21:25 Men's hearts failing them for [from WU] fear, and for looking after [apprehension of WU] those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. LK 21:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. LK 21:27 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh [near]. LK 21:28 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; LK 21:29 When they now shoot forth [leaves WU], ye see and know of [for WU] your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. LK 21:30 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. LK 21:31 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. LK 21:32 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. LK 21:33 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting [loaded down with dissipation WU], and drunkenness, and cares [the worries WU] of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares [unexpectedly WU]. LK 21:34 For as a snare [trap WU] shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. LK 21:35 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. LK 21:36
