(Read Matthew 24 Part 1 First)

35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever.

36 "However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.* Only the Father knows.1

37 "When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah's day.

38 In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.

39 People didn't realize what was going to happen until the Flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.

40 "Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.

41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.

42 So be prepared, because you don't know what day your Lord is coming.

43 "Know this: A homeowner who knew exactly when a burglar was coming would stay alert and not permit the house to be broken into.

44 You also must be ready all the time. For the Son of Man will come when least expected.

45 "Who is a faithful, sensible servant, to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his household and feeding his family?

46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.

47 I assure you, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.

48 But if the servant is evil and thinks, `My master won't be back for a while,'

49 and begins oppressing the other servants, partying, and getting drunk--

50 well, the master will return unannounced and unexpected.

51 He will tear the servant apart and banish him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
