Luke 21:36 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:36 Watch ye therefore - This is the general conclusion of all that precedes.

"So you, too, must keep watch! For you don't know what day your Lord is coming.
Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into.
You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.
And since you don't know when that time will come, be on guard! Stay alert!
Then the angel said, "I am Gabriel! I stand in the very presence of God. It was he who sent me to bring you this good news!
