Mark 13:14–27

14 But awhen you see the babomination of desolation standing where it should not be (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

15 aThe one who is on the housetop must not go down, or go in to get anything out of his house;

16 and the one who is in the field must not turn back to get his coat.

17 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

18 But pray that it may not happen in the winter.

19 For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred asince the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will.

20 Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no 1life would have been saved; but for the sake of the 2elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

21 And then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is 1the Christ’; or, ‘Behold, He is there’; do not believe him;

22 for false Christs and afalse prophets will arise, and will show 1bsigns and bwonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.

23 But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.

The Return of Christ

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, athe sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light,

25 aand the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in 1the heavens will be shaken.

26 Then they will see athe Son of Man bcoming in clouds with great power and glory.

27 And then He will send forth the angels, and awill gather together His 1elect from the four winds, bfrom the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.
