13:19 For [in] those days [in the last 3 ½ years of this age, after the temple has been desecrated (Dan. 9:27) and the Antichrist and Satan have their day]
 shall be affliction [#2347, tribulation], such as was not
[a.] from the beginning of the creation
[11.] which God created
[b.] unto this time,
[c.] neither shall be.
 except that the Lord
[a.] had shortened those days,
[11.] no flesh should be saved:
 but for the elect's sake [the Jewish elect],
[a.] whom he hath chosen,
[b.] he hath shortened the days.
13:21 And then [in these last of the last days]
 if any man shall say to you,
[a.] Lo, here [is] Christ [the Anointed One, the Messiah];
[b.] or, lo, [he is] there;
[c.] believe [him] not:
 false Christs [Messiahs] and
 false prophets shall rise, and
[a.] shall show signs and
[b.] [shall show] wonders,
[11.] to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.
 take ye heed:
 behold, I have foretold you
[a.] all things [which shall happen before His second coming].
 in those days [the last 3 ½ years of this age],
 after that tribulation [after the desecration of the temple in Jerusalem and persecution of the remnant of Israel],
[a.] the sun shall be darkened, and
[b.] the moon shall not give her light,
[c.] the stars of heaven shall fall, and
[d.] the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
13:26 And then shall they see [all the world shall see]
 the Son of man coming
[a.] in the clouds
[b.] with great power and
[c.] [with great] glory.
13:27 And then [at His second coming]
 shall he send his angels, and
 shall gather together his elect [His Hebrew elect: the Church He brings with Him]
[a.] from the four winds,
[b.] from the uttermost part of the earth
[c.] to the uttermost part of heaven.
 her branch is yet tender, and
 [she [putteth forth leaves,
[a.] ye know that summer is near:
13:29 So ye in like manner,
 when ye [ye which are alive at the end] shall see
[a.] these things come to pass,
 know that it is nigh [the second coming of Jesus],
[a.] [even] at the doors.
13:30 Verily I say unto you, that
 this generation [the generation that sees all these signs] shall not pass,
[a.] till all these things be done.
13:31  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but
 my words shall not pass away.
13:32 But of that day and [that] hour [of His second coming] knoweth
 no man, no,
 not the angels
[a.] which are in heaven,
 neither the Son,
 but the Father.
13:33  Take ye heed,
 watch and pray:
[a.] for ye know not
[11.] when the time is.
13:34 [For the Son of man is] as a man taking a far journey,
 who left his house, and
 [who] gave authority to his servants, and
 [who gave] to every man his work, and
 [who] commanded the porter to watch.
 for ye know not
[a.] when the master of the house cometh,
[11.] at even, or
[12.] at midnight, or
[13.] at the cockcrowing, or
[d.] in the morning:
13:36  Lest coming suddenly
[a.] he find you sleeping.
 what I say unto you
 I say unto all,
