|Ἀπὸ δὲ τῆς συκῆς μάθετε τὴν παραβολήν· ὁταν ἠδη ὁ κλάδος αὐτῆς γένηται ἀπαλὸς καὶ τὰ φύλλα ἐκφύῃ, γινώσκετε ὅτι ἐγγὺς τὸ θέρος·
||"From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.||The Lesson of the Fig Tree Mt.24.32-35 | Mk.13.28-31 | Lk.21.29-33
|οὑτως καὶ ὑμεῖς, ὁταν ἰδητε πάντα ταῦτα, γινώσκετε ὅτι ἐγγύς ἐστιν ἐπὶ θύραις.
||So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.||
|ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐ μὴ παρέλθῃ ἡ γενεὰ αὑτη ἑως ἂν πάντα ταῦτα γένηται.
||Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things take place.||
|ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ παρελεύσεται, οἱ δὲ λόγοι μου οὐ μὴ παρέλθωσιν.
||Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.||
