Bible: Mark 13:14-23
The Abomination of Desolation
13:14 “But 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.
