New International Version
22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect(A) those days will be shortened. 23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.(B) 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders(C) to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.
