34  Hütet euch, dass eure Herzen nicht beschweret werden mit Fressen und Saufen
und mit Sorgen der Nahrung und komme dieser Tag schnell über euch;
35  denn wie ein Fallstrick wird er kommen über alle, die auf Erden wohnen.
36  So seid nun wacher allezeit und betet, dass ihr würdig werden möget, zu entfliehen diesem allem,
das geschehen soll, und zu stehen für des Menschen Sohn.

English.png English translation

34  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness,
and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35  For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things
that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

(KJV)
