|ὁταν προβάλωσιν ἠδη, βλέποντες ἀφ' ἑαυτῶν γινώσκετε ὅτι ἠδη ἐγγὺς τὸ θέρος ἐστίν·
||as soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near.||

|ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ παρελεύσονται, οἱ δὲ λόγοι μου οὐ μὴ παρελεύσονται.
||Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.||
