Mr 13:1
13:1 And {1} as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples
     saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what
     buildings [are here]!

 (1) The destruction of the temple, city, and whole nation is
     foretold, and the troubles of the Church: but yet there are
     many comforts added, and last of all, the end of the
     world is described.

Mr 13:9
13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up
     to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and
     ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake,
     for a {a} testimony against them.

     (a) When they hear you preach it will be a most evident
         witness against them, so that they will not be able to
         pretend that they do not know.

Mr 13:11
13:11 But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up, {b}
      take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither
      {c} do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you
      in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak,
      but the Holy Ghost.

      (b) We are not forbidden to think beforehand, but we are
          willed to beware of that pensive carefulness by which
          men discourage themselves, which proceeds from
          distrust and lack of confidence and sure hope of God's
          assistance.  \\See Geneva "Mt 6:27"\\
      (c) By any kind of made-up and cunning type of story to

Mr 13:13
13:13 And ye shall be hated of all [men] {d} for my name's sake:
      but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be

      (d) For me.

Mr 13:14
13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation,
      spoken of by Daniel the prophet, {e} standing where it
      ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let
      them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

      (e) When the heathen and profane people shall not only
          enter into the temple, and defile both it and the
          city, but also completely destroy it.

Mr 13:19
13:19 For [in] {f} those days shall be affliction, such as was
      not from the beginning of the creation which God created
      unto this time, neither shall be.

      (f) This is an idiom which the Hebrews use and it has a
          great power in it, for it shows us that during that
          entire time one misery will follow another in such a
          way as if the time itself was very misery itself.  So
          the prophet Amos says that the day of the Lord will
          be darkness; Am 5:20.

Mr 13:32
13:32 {2} But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no,
      not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but
      the Father.

 (2) The latter day is not to be searched for curiously, which
     day the Father alone knows: but let us rather take heed
     that it does not come upon us unaware.
