The Holy Bible - The Gospel According to Saint Luke, Chapter 21 (Latin)
1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
5And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
6As 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.
7And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
8And 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.
9But 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.
10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
11And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
12But before all these, 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.
13And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
18But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
19In your patience possess ye your souls.
20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
25And 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;
26Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
29And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
31So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
32Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36Watch 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.
37And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
38And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.
1respiciens autem vidit eos qui mittebant munera sua in gazofilacium divites
2vidit autem et quandam viduam pauperculam mittentem aera minuta duo
3et dixit vere dico vobis quia vidua haec pauper plus quam omnes misit
4nam omnes hii ex abundanti sibi miserunt in munera Dei haec autem ex eo quod deest illi omnem victum suum quem habuit misit
5et quibusdam dicentibus de templo quod lapidibus bonis et donis ornatum esset dixit
6haec quae videtis venient dies in quibus non relinquetur lapis super lapidem qui non destruatur
7interrogaverunt autem illum dicentes praeceptor quando haec erunt et quod signum cum fieri incipient
8qui dixit videte ne seducamini multi enim venient in nomine meo dicentes quia ego sum et tempus adpropinquavit nolite ergo ire post illos
9cum autem audieritis proelia et seditiones nolite terreri oportet primum haec fieri sed non statim finis
10tunc dicebat illis surget gens contra gentem et regnum adversus regnum
11terraemotus magni erunt per loca et pestilentiae et fames terroresque de caelo et signa magna erunt
12sed ante haec omnia inicient vobis manus suas et persequentur tradentes in synagogas et custodias trahentes ad reges et praesides propter nomen meum
13continget autem vobis in testimonium
14ponite ergo in cordibus vestris non praemeditari quemadmodum respondeatis
15ego enim dabo vobis os et sapientiam cui non poterunt resistere et contradicere omnes adversarii vestri
16trademini autem a parentibus et fratribus et cognatis et amicis et morte adficient ex vobis
17et eritis odio omnibus propter nomen meum
18et capillus de capite vestro non peribit
19in patientia vestra possidebitis animas vestras
20cum autem videritis circumdari ab exercitu Hierusalem tunc scitote quia adpropinquavit desolatio eius
21tunc qui in Iudaea sunt fugiant in montes et qui in medio eius discedant et qui in regionibus non intrent in eam
22quia dies ultionis hii sunt ut impleantur omnia quae scripta sunt
23vae autem praegnatibus et nutrientibus in illis diebus erit enim pressura magna supra terram et ira populo huic
24et cadent in ore gladii et captivi ducentur in omnes gentes et Hierusalem calcabitur a gentibus donec impleantur tempora nationum
25et erunt signa in sole et luna et stellis et in terris pressura gentium prae confusione sonitus maris et fluctuum
26arescentibus hominibus prae timore et expectatione quae supervenient universo orbi nam virtutes caelorum movebuntur
27et tunc videbunt Filium hominis venientem in nube cum potestate magna et maiestate
28his autem fieri incipientibus respicite et levate capita vestra quoniam adpropinquat redemptio vestra
29et dixit illis similitudinem videte ficulneam et omnes arbores
30cum producunt iam ex se fructum scitis quoniam prope est aestas
31ita et vos cum videritis haec fieri scitote quoniam prope est regnum Dei
32amen dico vobis quia non praeteribit generatio haec donec omnia fiant
33caelum et terra transibunt verba autem mea non transient
34adtendite autem vobis ne forte graventur corda vestra in crapula et ebrietate et curis huius vitae et superveniat in vos repentina dies illa
35tamquam laqueus enim superveniet in omnes qui sedent super faciem omnis terrae
36vigilate itaque omni tempore orantes ut digni habeamini fugere ista omnia quae futura sunt et stare ante Filium hominis
37erat autem diebus docens in templo noctibus vero exiens morabatur in monte qui vocatur Oliveti
38et omnis populus manicabat ad eum in templo audire eum
