23 (A)At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a word went out, (B)and I have come to tell it to you, for (C)you are greatly loved. Therefore consider the word (D)and understand the vision.

The Seventy Weeks

24 (E)“Seventy weeks[a] are decreed about your people and (F)your holy city, to finish (G)the transgression, to put an end to sin, (H)and to atone for iniquity, (I)to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and (J)to anoint a most holy place.[b] 25 (K)Know therefore and understand that (L)from the going out of the word to restore and (M)build Jerusalem to the coming of an (N)anointed one, a (O)prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again[c] with squares and moat, (P)but in a troubled time.
