The Holy Bible - The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, Chapter 24 (Latin)
1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25Behold, I have told you before.
26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
1et egressus Iesus de templo ibat et accesserunt discipuli eius ut ostenderent ei aedificationes templi
2ipse autem respondens dixit eis videtis haec omnia amen dico vobis non relinquetur hic lapis super lapidem qui non destruatur
3sedente autem eo super montem Oliveti accesserunt ad eum discipuli secreto dicentes dic nobis quando haec erunt et quod signum adventus tui et consummationis saeculi
4et respondens Iesus dixit eis videte ne quis vos seducat
5multi enim venient in nomine meo dicentes ego sum Christus et multos seducent
6audituri autem estis proelia et opiniones proeliorum videte ne turbemini oportet enim haec fieri sed nondum est finis
7consurget enim gens in gentem et regnum in regnum et erunt pestilentiae et fames et terraemotus per loca
8haec autem omnia initia sunt dolorum
9tunc tradent vos in tribulationem et occident vos et eritis odio omnibus gentibus propter nomen meum
10et tunc scandalizabuntur multi et invicem tradent et odio habebunt invicem
11et multi pseudoprophetae surgent et seducent multos
12et quoniam abundabit iniquitas refrigescet caritas multorum
13qui autem permanserit usque in finem hic salvus erit
14et praedicabitur hoc evangelium regni in universo orbe in testimonium omnibus gentibus et tunc veniet consummatio
15cum ergo videritis abominationem desolationis quae dicta est a Danihelo propheta stantem in loco sancto qui legit intellegat
16tunc qui in Iudaea sunt fugiant ad montes
17et qui in tecto non descendat tollere aliquid de domo sua
18et qui in agro non revertatur tollere tunicam suam
19vae autem praegnatibus et nutrientibus in illis diebus
20orate autem ut non fiat fuga vestra hieme vel sabbato
21erit enim tunc tribulatio magna qualis non fuit ab initio mundi usque modo neque fiet
22et nisi breviati fuissent dies illi non fieret salva omnis caro sed propter electos breviabuntur dies illi
23tunc si quis vobis dixerit ecce hic Christus aut illic nolite credere
24surgent enim pseudochristi et pseudoprophetae et dabunt signa magna et prodigia ita ut in errorem inducantur si fieri potest etiam electi
25ecce praedixi vobis
26si ergo dixerint vobis ecce in deserto est nolite exire ecce in penetrabilibus nolite credere
27sicut enim fulgur exit ab oriente et paret usque in occidente ita erit et adventus Filii hominis
28ubicumque fuerit corpus illuc congregabuntur aquilae
29statim autem post tribulationem dierum illorum sol obscurabitur et luna non dabit lumen suum et stellae cadent de caelo et virtutes caelorum commovebuntur
30et tunc parebit signum Filii hominis in caelo et tunc plangent omnes tribus terrae et videbunt Filium hominis venientem in nubibus caeli cum virtute multa et maiestate
31et mittet angelos suos cum tuba et voce magna et congregabunt electos eius a quattuor ventis a summis caelorum usque ad terminos eorum
32ab arbore autem fici discite parabolam cum iam ramus eius tener fuerit et folia nata scitis quia prope est aestas
33ita et vos cum videritis haec omnia scitote quia prope est in ianuis
34amen dico vobis quia non praeteribit haec generatio donec omnia haec fiant
35caelum et terra transibunt verba vero mea non praeteribunt
36de die autem illa et hora nemo scit neque angeli caelorum nisi Pater solus
37sicut autem in diebus Noe ita erit et adventus Filii hominis
38sicut enim erant in diebus ante diluvium comedentes et bibentes nubentes et nuptum tradentes usque ad eum diem quo introivit in arcam Noe
39et non cognoverunt donec venit diluvium et tulit omnes ita erit et adventus Filii hominis
40tunc duo erunt in agro unus adsumetur et unus relinquetur
41duae molentes in mola una adsumetur et una relinquetur
42vigilate ergo quia nescitis qua hora Dominus vester venturus sit
43illud autem scitote quoniam si sciret pater familias qua hora fur venturus esset vigilaret utique et non sineret perfodiri domum suam
44ideoque et vos estote parati quia qua nescitis hora Filius hominis venturus est
45quis putas est fidelis servus et prudens quem constituit dominus suus supra familiam suam ut det illis cibum in tempore
46beatus ille servus quem cum venerit dominus eius invenerit sic facientem
47amen dico vobis quoniam super omnia bona sua constituet eum
48si autem dixerit malus servus ille in corde suo moram facit dominus meus venire
49et coeperit percutere conservos suos manducet autem et bibat cum ebriis
50veniet dominus servi illius in die qua non sperat et hora qua ignorat
51et dividet eum partemque eius ponet cum hypocritis illic erit fletus et stridor dentium
