hearken and I will reason with you, and I will  speak unto you and prophesy, as unto men in  days of old, and I will show it plainly as I  showed it unto my disciples, as I stood before  them in the flesh, and spake unto them saying:  As ye have asked of me concerning the signs  of my coming, in the day when I shall come in  my glory in the clouds of heaven, to fulfil the  promises that I have made unto your fathers:  for as ye have looked upon the long absence  of your spirits from your bodies to be a bon dage, I will show unto you how the day of re demption shall come, and also the restoration  of the scattered Israel.
3 And now ye behold this temple which is  in Jerusalem, which ye call the house of God,  and your enemies say that this house shall  never fall. But verily I say unto you, that  desolation shall come upon this generation as  a thief in the night, and this people shall be de stroyed and scattered among all nations. And  this temple which ye now see, shall be thrown  down that there shall not be left one stone  upon another. And it shall come to pass, that  this generation of Jews shall not pass away,  until every desolation which I have told you  concerning them, shall come to pass. Ye say  that ye know that the end of the world cometh;  ye say also that ye know that the heavens and  the earth shall pass away; and in this ye say  truly, for so it is; but these things which I  have told you, shall not pass away until all  shall be fulfilled. And this I have told you  concerning Jerusalem, and when that day  shall come, shall a remnant be scattered among [p. 181]

3 And now ye behold this temple which is in Jerusalem, which ye call the house of God, and your enemies say that this house shall never fall. But verily I say unto you, that desolation shall come upon this generation as a thief in the night, and this people shall be destroyed and scattered among all nations. And this temple which ye now see, shall be thrown down that there shall not be left one stone upon another. And it shall come to pass, that this generation of Jews shall not pass away, until every desolation which I have told you concerning them, shall come to pass.
