Bible: Mark 13:14-23

The Abomination of Desolation

13:14But when you see the abomination of desolation 1  standing where it should not be (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee 2  to the mountains. 13:15 The one on the roof 3  must not come down or go inside to take anything out of his house. 4  13:16 The one in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. 13:17 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! 13:18 Pray that it may not be in winter. 13:19 For in those days there will be suffering 5  unlike anything that has happened 6  from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, or ever will happen. 13:20 And if the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would be saved. But because of the elect, whom he chose, he has cut them 7  short. 13:21 Then 8  if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ 9  or ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe him. 13:22 For false messiahs 10  and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, the elect. 13:23 Be careful! I have told you everything ahead of time.
