Matthew 24:15-28New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.17 [a]Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house.18 [b]Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak.19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!20 But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.22 Unless those days had been cut short, no [c]life would have been saved; but for the sake of the [d]elect those days will be cut short.23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the [e]Christ,’ or ‘[f]There He is,’ do not believe him.24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will [g]show great [h]signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the [i]elect.25 Behold, I have told you in advance.26 So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.27 For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.28 Wherever the corpse is, there the [j]vultures will gather.
14 “But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where it should not be (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.15 The one who is on the housetop must not go down, or go in to get anything out of his house;16 and the one who is in the field must not turn back to get his coat.17 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!18 But pray that it may not happen in the winter.19 For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will.20 Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no [a]life would have been saved; but for the sake of the [b]elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.21 And then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is [c]the Christ’; or, ‘Behold, He is there’; do not believe him;22 for false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show [d]signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.23 But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.
20 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then [a]recognize that her desolation is near.21 Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of [b]the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter [c]the city;22 because these are days of vengeance, so that all things which are written will be fulfilled.23 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days; for there will be great distress upon the [d]land and wrath to this people;
