"Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
"But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
"But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man."
