2Esdras 16:18 The beginning of sorrows and great mournings; the beginning of famine and great death; the beginning of wars, and the powers shall stand in fear; the beginning of evils! what shall I do when these evils shall come? 2 Esdras 16:19 Behold, famine and plague, tribulation and anguish, are sent as scourges for amendment.
2Esdras 16:20 But for all these things they shall not turn from their wickedness, nor be always mindful of the scourges. Mar 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Mar 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. Mar 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
