The Abomination of Desolation
r "So when you see the s 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not" (let the reader understand), "then t let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
"Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house.
"And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.
u "But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
"And pray that your flight may not be in winter.
v "For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.
"And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
w "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'Look, He is there!' do not believe it.
"For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and x wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
"But y take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.

Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand).
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.
And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation.
And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.
But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.
And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.
A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations.
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.
"But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.'
Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it.
And they will say to you, 'Look here!' or 'Look there!' Do not go after them or follow them.
And He said: "Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He, ' and, 'The time has drawn near.' Therefore do not go after them.
Deuteronomy 13:1 - 3
If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder.
He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
John 16:1 - 4
These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
2 Peter 3:17
You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked.
