Matthew 24:4–24

4 And Jesus answered and said to them, aSee to it that no one misleads you.

5 For amany will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the 1Christ,’ and will mislead many.

6 You will be hearing of awars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.

7 For anation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be bfamines and earthquakes.

8 aBut all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

9 aThen they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and byou will be hated by all nations because of My name.

10 At that time many will 1afall away and will 2betray one another and hate one another.

11 Many afalse prophets will arise and will mislead many.

12 Because lawlessness is increased, 1most people’s love will grow cold.

13 aBut the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.

14 This agospel of the kingdom bshall be preached in the whole 1cworld as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Perilous Times

15 Therefore when you see the aabomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in bthe holy place (clet the reader understand),

16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

17 1Whoever is on athe housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house.

18 1Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak.

19 But awoe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

20 But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.

21 For then there will be a agreat tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

22 Unless those days had been cut short, no 1life would have been saved; but for athe sake of the 2elect those days will be cut short.

23 aThen if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the 1Christ,’ or2There He is,do not believe him.

24 For false Christs and afalse prophets will arise and will 1show great 2bsigns and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even cthe 3elect.
