32  Sehet an den Feigenbaum und alle Bäume, wenn sie itzt ausschlagen, so sehet ihrs an ihnen und merket, dass itzt der Sommer nahe ist.
33  Also auch ihr, wenn ihr dies alles sehet angehen, so wisset, dass das Reich Gottes nahe ist. Himmel und Erde vergehen, aber meine Wort vergehen nicht.

32  Look upon the fig tree and all trees, when they put out buds, look upon them and note, that Summer is close.
33  Likewise you, if you look upon all this, thus know, that the Kingdom of God is near. Heaven and Earth pass away, but my word does not pass away.
