25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild(A) Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[a](B) the ruler,(C) comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.(D) 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death(E) and will have nothing.[b] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood:(F) War will continue until the end, and desolations(G) have been decreed.(H) 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[c] In the middle of the ‘seven’[d] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[e] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed(I) is poured out on him.[f][g]
