15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by aDaniel the prophet, stand in bthe holy place, c(whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 dLet him which is on the ehousetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And fwoe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great gtribulation, ghsuch as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except ithose days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for kthe elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
