Luke chapter 21

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

Literal translation of the Greek:

Lukas 21

1 but He looked again and beheld them casting their offerings into the abounding collection box

2 and He beheld a certain poor widow cast in there two leptas(one hundred leptas(copper coins) = 1 drachma(a silver coin))

3 and He said, "truly I tell you that the poor widow cast in the most of all"

4 but not everyone, from their excess they cast in their gift to God but she from her poverty, not all their living(livelihood) that she cast

5 and some said about the temple that the stones were good(beautiful, excellent) and said an adorned consecrated gift(offering)

6 this which you see, the days will come in which no stone is left upon a stone which is not destroyed(literally dissolved)

7 but they asked Him, tell us Teacher, so when will these things be and what sign will there be when these are about to happen(about to be literally)

8 but He said, see you're not deceived because many will come in My Name saying that I am He and the time is near, do not follow them

9 but when you hear of wars and instabilities(tumults) do not be scared(terrified, frightened) because these need to happen first because the end is not yet(or not directly)

10 then He said He will rouse(or awaken) nation(tribe) upon nation(tribe) and kingdom upon kingdom

11 also great earthquakes in places and famines and there will be wickedness(evil) and also terror and there will be great signs from heaven

12 but before these, not all(of you implied), they will lay their hands on you(or seize you) and they will pursue you(persecute you, make you flee) handing you over into gatherings and prisons and they will lead you(bring you) before kings(leaders, those in power) and chiefs(governors, rulers) for My Name('s sake implied)

13 but you will turn(literally become) into a witness

14 therefore do not set in your hearts thinking before of what you will say(or of an apology, of your self defence)

15 but I will give you a mouth and wisdom which none will be able to deny(or refute) nor oppose(resist), all those opposing you

16 but you will be handed over by parents and brothers and relatives and friends and they will kill (some implied) of you

17 and you will be hated by all for My Name('s sake implied)

18 and none of the hairs on your head are lost(or destroyed)

19 in your patience you possess your own spirits

20 but when you see military camps around Yerushalem then know that her desolation(can mean destruction or the state of emptiness) approaches(nears)

21 then those in Judea flee into the hills(mountains) and those in the middle of them depart out and those in the rural areas do not enter into them

22 those days of vindication(vengeance, punishment) is fulfilling all that is written

23 but woe to those pregnant and those breastfeeding in those days because there will be great distress on the earth and anger among the people

24 and they will fall by the mouth(edge) of the sword(or knife) and they will be led captive into all the nations(tribes) and Yerushalem will be trampled on by the nations(tribes) until the fulfilment of the nations'(tribes') time(set time implied)

25 and there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and stars and upon the earth among the nations(tribes) in perplexity, a roaring(reverberating) sea and tumult

26 men(mankind) out of their minds from fear and expectation of the coming world because the powers(forces) of the heavens will be shaken

27 and then they will see the son of man coming in a cloud with power(might) and much glory

28 but (when implied) these begin to happen arise and lift up your heads because your deliverance draws near

29 and He told them a parable(=similitude, similar story), see the fig tree and all the trees

30 when they sprout now you can see from them knowing that by squeezing them(implies to be ready) it is summer

31 so do you when you see these things know that the Kingdom of God is ready

32 so be it(amen) I tell you this generation will not pass until all this comes to be(happens)

33 the heavens and the earth will pass away but My words will not pass away

34 take care that they never burden your hearts in debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of the body and that day suddenly(unexpected, unforeseen) stands upon(is before) you

35 because as a snare it is coming upon all those sitting on the face of all the earth(the whole earth)

36 watch therefore at all times(literally in all time) want(desire, pray) so that you are accounted worthy(judged worthy) to escape(or flee from) all that is about to be(to happen) and stand before(in the presence of) the Son of man

37 but in those days He taught in the Temple but at night He went out and He abode in the hill(mountain) called olives

38 and all the people came before Him at dawn in the Temple to hear Him

Luk 21:1  αναβλεψας δε ειδεν τους βαλλοντας τα δωρα αυτων εις το γαζοφυλακιον πλουσιους 

Luk 21:2  ειδεν δε και τινα χηραν πενιχραν βαλλουσαν εκει δυο λεπτα 

Luk 21:3  και ειπεν αληθως λεγω υμιν οτι η χηρα η πτωχη αυτη πλειον παντων εβαλεν 

Luk 21:4  απαντες γαρ ουτοι εκ του περισσευοντος αυτοις εβαλον εις τα δωρα του θεου αυτη δε εκ του υστερηματος αυτης απαντα τον βιον ον ειχεν εβαλεν 

Luk 21:5  και τινων λεγοντων περι του ιερου οτι λιθοις καλοις και αναθημασιν κεκοσμηται ειπεν 

Luk 21:6  ταυτα α θεωρειτε ελευσονται ημεραι εν αις ουκ αφεθησεται λιθος επι λιθω ος ου καταλυθησεται 

Luk 21:7  επηρωτησαν δε αυτον λεγοντες διδασκαλε ποτε ουν ταυτα εσται και τι το σημειον οταν μελλη ταυτα γινεσθαι 

Luk 21:8  ο δε ειπεν βλεπετε μη πλανηθητε πολλοι γαρ ελευσονται επι τω ονοματι μου λεγοντες οτι εγω ειμι και ο καιρος ηγγικεν μη ουν πορευθητε οπισω αυτων 

Luk 21:9  οταν δε ακουσητε πολεμους και ακαταστασιας μη πτοηθητε δει γαρ ταυτα γενεσθαι πρωτον αλλ ουκ ευθεως το τελος 

Luk 21:10  τοτε ελεγεν αυτοις εγερθησεται εθνος επι εθνος και βασιλεια επι βασιλειαν 

Luk 21:11  σεισμοι τε μεγαλοι κατα τοπους και λιμοι και λοιμοι εσονται φοβητρα τε και σημεια απ ουρανου μεγαλα εσται 

Luk 21:12  προ δε τουτων απαντων επιβαλουσιν εφ υμας τας χειρας αυτων και διωξουσιν παραδιδοντες εις συναγωγας και φυλακας αγομενους επι βασιλεις και ηγεμονας ενεκεν του ονοματος μου 

Luk 21:13  αποβησεται δε υμιν εις μαρτυριον 

Luk 21:14  θεσθε ουν εις τας καρδιας υμων μη προμελεταν απολογηθηναι 

Luk 21:15  εγω γαρ δωσω υμιν στομα και σοφιαν η ου δυνησονται αντειπειν ουδε αντιστηναι παντες οι αντικειμενοι υμιν 

Luk 21:16  παραδοθησεσθε δε και υπο γονεων και αδελφων και συγγενων και φιλων και θανατωσουσιν εξ υμων 

Luk 21:17  και εσεσθε μισουμενοι υπο παντων δια το ονομα μου 

Luk 21:18  και θριξ εκ της κεφαλης υμων ου μη αποληται 

Luk 21:19  εν τη υπομονη υμων κτησασθε τας ψυχας υμων 

Luk 21:20  οταν δε ιδητε κυκλουμενην υπο στρατοπεδων την ιερουσαλημ τοτε γνωτε οτι ηγγικεν η ερημωσις αυτης 

Luk 21:21  τοτε οι εν τη ιουδαια φευγετωσαν εις τα ορη και οι εν μεσω αυτης εκχωρειτωσαν και οι εν ταις χωραις μη εισερχεσθωσαν εις αυτην 

Luk 21:22  οτι ημεραι εκδικησεως αυται εισιν του πληρωθηναι παντα τα γεγραμμενα 

Luk 21:23  ουαι δε ταις εν γαστρι εχουσαις και ταις θηλαζουσαις εν εκειναις ταις ημεραις εσται γαρ αναγκη μεγαλη επι της γης και οργη εν τω λαω τουτω 

Luk 21:24  και πεσουνται στοματι μαχαιρας και αιχμαλωτισθησονται εις παντα τα εθνη και ιερουσαλημ εσται πατουμενη υπο εθνων αχρι πληρωθωσιν καιροι εθνων 

Luk 21:25  και εσται σημεια εν ηλιω και σεληνη και αστροις και επι της γης συνοχη εθνων εν απορια ηχουσης θαλασσης και σαλου 

Luk 21:26  αποψυχοντων ανθρωπων απο φοβου και προσδοκιας των επερχομενων τη οικουμενη αι γαρ δυναμεις των ουρανων σαλευθησονται 

Luk 21:27  και τοτε οψονται τον υιον του ανθρωπου ερχομενον εν νεφελη μετα δυναμεως και δοξης πολλης 

Luk 21:28  αρχομενων δε τουτων γινεσθαι ανακυψατε και επαρατε τας κεφαλας υμων διοτι εγγιζει η απολυτρωσις υμων 

Luk 21:29  και ειπεν παραβολην αυτοις ιδετε την συκην και παντα τα δενδρα 

Luk 21:30  οταν προβαλωσιν ηδη βλεποντες αφ εαυτων γινωσκετε οτι ηδη εγγυς το θερος εστιν 

Luk 21:31  ουτως και υμεις οταν ιδητε ταυτα γινομενα γινωσκετε οτι εγγυς εστιν η βασιλεια του θεου 

Luk 21:32  αμην λεγω υμιν οτι ου μη παρελθη η γενεα αυτη εως αν παντα γενηται 

Luk 21:33  ο ουρανος και η γη παρελευσονται οι δε λογοι μου ου μη παρελθωσιν 

Luk 21:34  προσεχετε δε εαυτοις μηποτε βαρυνθωσιν υμων αι καρδιαι εν κραιπαλη και μεθη και μεριμναις βιωτικαις και αιφνιδιος εφ υμας επιστη η ημερα εκεινη 

Luk 21:35  ως παγις γαρ επελευσεται επι παντας τους καθημενους επι προσωπον πασης της γης 

Luk 21:36  αγρυπνειτε ουν εν παντι καιρω δεομενοι ινα καταξιωθητε εκφυγειν ταυτα παντα τα μελλοντα γινεσθαι και σταθηναι εμπροσθεν του υιου του ανθρωπου 

Luk 21:37  ην δε τας ημερας εν τω ιερω διδασκων τας δε νυκτας εξερχομενος ηυλιζετο εις το ορος το καλουμενον ελαιων 

Luk 21:38  και πας ο λαος ωρθριζεν προς αυτον εν τω ιερω ακουειν αυτου
