  and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Matthew 24:40

Matthew 24:45

Matthew 24:48

Matthew 24:49
  and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards;
Matthew 24:50
  the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know,
Matthew 24:51
  and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
