1 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
2 When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
3 So likewise ye, when ye shall see the leaves rot and fall, know that the gardener shall soon come to prune and tend.
4 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
5 Many on earth shall pass away and return, but my words shall not pass away, but return in life.
6 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
