24:2Iesus sayde vnto them: Se ye not all these thinges? Uerely I saye vnto you ther shall not be here lefte one stone vpon another, that shall not be destroyed.
24:3And as he sat vpon mount Oliuete, hys disciples came vnto him secretly, saying: Tell vs: when shall these thinges be: & what shalbe the token of thy commyng & of the ende of the world?

24:18Nether let him whych is in the felde, returne backe to fetche his clothes.
24:19Wo shalbe in those dayes to them that are wt chylde, & to them that geue sucke.

24:30And then shall appeare the token of the sonne of man in heauen. And then shall all the kynredes of the earth mourne, and they shall se the sonne of man commyng in the cloudes of heauen, wyth power & greate glorie
24:31And he shall sende his Angels wt the greate voyce of a trompett, & they shall gather to gether his chosen, from the foure wyndes: euen from the hyghest partes of heauen, vntyll the endes ther of.
24:32Learne a symilitude of the fygge tree: When hys braunches is yet tender, & the leaues sprong, ye knowe that sommer is nye.
24:33So lykewyse ye, when ye se all these thinges, be ye sure that it is neare, euen at the dores.

24:41two wemen shalbe gryndinge at the myll, the one receaned & the other refused.
24:42Watch therfore, for ye knowe not what houre your lord will come.
24:43Of this yet be sure, that yf the good man of the house knew what houre the thefe wolde come: he wolde suerly watche, & not suffre hys house to be broken vp.
24:44Therfore, be ye also ready, for in soch an houre as ye thynke not: wyll the sonne of man come.
24:45Who is a faythfull & wyse seruaunt, whom his Lorde hath made ruler ouer his housholde, to geue them meate in season.
24:46Blessed is that seruaunt whom hys Lord (when he cometh) shall fynde so doynge:
24:47Uerely I saye vnto you, that he shall make hym ruler ouer all hys goodes.
24:48But & yf that euyll seruaunt saye in hys herte, my Lorde wyll be long a commyng
24:49(and so begynne to smyte his felowes, yee, and to eate & drincke wyth the droncken)
24:50the same seruauntes Lord shall come in a daye when he loketh not for hym, and in an houre that he is not ware of,
24:51& shall hewe him in peces, & geue hym his porcyon wyth ypocrites: there shalbe wepynge and gnasshynge of teth.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
