24 ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ Reference Matthew
Περὶ δὲ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης καὶ ὡρας οὐδεὶς οἶδεν, οὐδὲ οἱ ἀγγελοι τῶν οὐρανῶν οὐδὲ ὁ υἱός, εἰ μὴ ὁ πατὴρ μόνος. The Unknown Day and Hour Mt.24.36-44 | Mk.13.32-37 | Lk.17.26-30 | Lk.17.34-36"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
ὡσπερ γὰρ αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ Νῶε, οὑτως ἐσται ἡ παρουσία τοῦ υἱοῦ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.  As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
ὡς γὰρ ἦσαν ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ταῖς πρὸ τοῦ κατακλυσμοῦ τρώγοντες καὶ πίνοντες, γαμοῦντες καὶ γαμίζοντες, ἀχρι ἧς ἡμέρας εἰσῆλθεν Νῶε εἰς τὴν κιβωτόν,  For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
καὶ οὐκ ἐγνωσαν ἑως ἦλθεν ὁ κατακλυσμὸς καὶ ἦρεν ἀπαντας, ὑτως ἐσται [καὶ] ἡ παρουσία τοῦ υἱοῦ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.  and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
τότε δύο ἐσονται ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ, εἷς παραλαμβάνεται καὶ εἷς ἀφίεται·  Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left.
δύο ἀλήθουσαι ἐν τῷ μύλῳ, μία παραλαμβάνεται καὶ μία ἀφίεται.  Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left.
γρηγορεῖτε οὖν, ὅτι οὐκ οἰδατε ποίᾳ ἡμέρᾳ ὁ κύριος ὑμῶν ἐρχεται.  Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
ἐκεῖνο δὲ γινώσκετε ὅτι εἰ ᾐδει ὁ οἰκοδεσπότης ποίᾳ φυλακῇ ὁ κλέπτης ἐρχεται, ἐγρηγόρησεν ἂν καὶ οὐκ ἂν εἰασεν διορυχθῆναι τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ.  But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into.
διὰ τοῦτο καὶ ὑμεῖς γίνεσθε ἑτοιμοι, ὅτι ᾗ οὐ δοκεῖτε ὡρᾳ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐρχεται.  Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
