The Abomination Of Desolation
15 Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand). 16 Then let those in Judea flee into the mountains. 17 Let him on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house; 18 nor let him in the field turn back to take his clothes. 19 And woe to those who are with child, and to those who give suck in those days! 20 But pray that your flight is not in the winter, nor on the sabbath day; 21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world to this time; no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days should be shortened, no flesh would be saved. But for the elect's sake, those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect. 25 Behold, I have told you beforehand. 26 Therefore if they shall say to you, Behold, He is in the desert! Do not go out. Behold, He is in the secret rooms! Do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes out of the east and shines even to the west, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered.
14 But when you see the abomination of desolation, that spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not (let him who reads understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15 And let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house. 16 And let him who is in the field not turn back again in order to take up his garment. 17 But woe to those with babe in womb, and to those who give suck in those days! 18 And pray that your flight is not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never shall be. 20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved. But for the elect's sake, whom He has chosen, He has shortened the days.
21 And then if anyone shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, lo, there! Do not believe him. 22 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give miraculous signs and wonders in order to seduce, if possible, even the elect. 23 But take heed; behold, I have told you all things beforehand.
