17 Revised Standard Version Passage

20Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed;The Coming of the Kingdom Lk.17.20-37 (borders of Samaria) | Mt.24.23-28 | Mt.24.37-41
21nor will they say, 'Lo, here it is!' or 'There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you Or: within you." 
22And he said to the disciples, "The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it. 
23And they will say to you, 'Lo, there!' or 'Lo, here!' Do not go, do not follow them. 
24For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of man be in his day Other ancient authorities omit: in his day. 
25But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 
26As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man.The Unknown Day and Hour Lk.17.26-30 | Mt.24.36-44 | Mk.13.32-37 | Lk.17.34-36
27They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 
28Likewise as it was in the days of Lot - they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, 
29but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulphur rained from heaven and destroyed them all - 
30so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. 
31On that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. 
32Remember Lot's wife. 
33Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 
34I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 
35There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left." 
36 Other ancient authorities add verse 36 ... Two men will be in the field, one will be taken and the other left" 
37And they said to him, "Where, Lord?" He said to them, "Where the body is, there the eagles Or: vultures will be gathered together."
