20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies,v you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.w 22 For this is the time of punishmentx in fulfillmenty of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampledz on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
