<14/> Then understood his deciples, that he should come again on the Earth, after that he was glorified & crowned on the right hand of God. & <1/> <And> Jesus went out & departed from the Temple; & his deciples came to him for to hear him, saying, Master, shew us concerning the buildings of the Temple; as thou hast said, They shall be thrown down & left <2/> unto you desolate. <2//> & <And> Jesus said unto them, See you not all these things? & <And> do yeu not understand them? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here upon this temple, one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. & <And> Jesus left them & went upon the <3/> Mount of Olives. <3/> & <And> as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the Deciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us when shall these things be which thou hast said concerning the distruction of the Temple, & the Jews; & what is the sign of thy coming; & of the end of the World, (or the distruction of the wicked, which is the end of the <4/> World.) <4/> & <And> Jesus answered & said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; & shall deceive many. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, & shall kill you; & you shall be hated of all Nations for my name’s sake. & <And> then shall many be offended, & shall betray one another. & <And> many false Prophets shall arise, & shall deceive many. & <And> because iniquity shall abound, the love of many Shall was <wax> cold.

14/ Then understood his deciples, that he should come again on the Earth, after that he was glorified & crowned on the right hand of God. & 1/ And Jesus went out & departed from the Temple; & his deciples came to him for to hear him, saying, Master, shew us concerning the buildings of the Temple; as thou hast said, They shall be thrown down & left 2/ unto you desolate. 2// & And Jesus said unto them, See you not all these things? And do yeu not understand them? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here upon this temple, one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And Jesus left them & went upon the 3/ Mount of Olives. 3/ And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the Deciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us when shall these things be which thou hast said concerning the distruction of the Temple, & the Jews; & what is the sign of thy coming; & of the end of the World, (or the distruction of the wicked, which is the end of the 4/ World.) 4/ And Jesus answered & said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; & shall deceive many. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, & shall kill you; & you shall be hated of all Nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, & shall betray one another. And many false Prophets shall arise, & shall deceive many. & And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many Shall wax cold. But he that 5/ remaineth stedfast, and is not overcome, the same Shall be Saved. 5/ When you therefore, shall see the abominations of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, concerning the distruction of Jerusalem, then you shall stand in the holy place; (whoso readeth let him understand;) then let them who are in Judea, flee into the Mountains; let him who is on the house top, flee and not return to to take any thing out of his house; neither let him who is in the field, return back to take his Clothes. And wo unto them that are with child, & unto them that give suck in those days! Therefore, pray ye the Lord, that your flight be not in thee Winter, neither on the Sabath day; for then, in those days, shall be great tribulations on the Jews & upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; such as was not before sent upon Israel of God, since the begining of their kingdom till this time; 6/ no, nor ever shall be sent again upon Israel. 6/ all things which have befalen them, are only the begining of the sorrows which shall come upon them; are &, except those days should be shortened, there should none of their flesh be saved. But for the elect’s sake, according to the covenant, those days shall be shortened. Behold those things I have spoken unto [p. 45 (first numbering)]
