24 “Seventy weeks[a] are decreed concerning your people and your holy city,
to put an end to transgression
to bring sin to an end,
to atone for iniquity,
to bring in everlasting righteousness,
to seal up vision and prophecy,
and to anoint the Holy of Holies.

25 So know and understand:

From the issuing of the decree to restore and to build Jerusalem until the time Mashiach,[b] the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and 62 weeks.

It will be rebuilt, with plaza and moat, but it will be in times of distress.

26 Then after the 62 weeks Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing.[c]

Then the people of a prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.[d] But his end will come like a flood. Until the end of the war that is decreed there will be destruction.
