Then on my return I would have collected it with interest.
Now as for those enemies of mine who did not want me as their king, bring them here and slay them before me. After he had said this, he proceeded on his journey up to Jerusalem.

Then the second and the third married her, and likewise all the seven died childless. Finally the woman also died. Now at the resurrection whose wife will that woman be? For all seven had been married to her. They can no longer die, for they are like angels; and they are the children of God because they are the ones who will rise.

Andrew Trong Thursday of the Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time November 28, Luke Jesus said to his disciples: "When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, know that its desolation is at hand.
Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains.
