||Then, when you will have seen Jerusalem encircled by an army, know then that its desolation has drawn near.
||Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and those who are in its midst withdraw, and those who are in the countryside not enter into it.
||For these are the days of retribution, so that all things may be fulfilled, which have been written.
||Then woe to those who are pregnant or nursing in those days. For there will be great distress upon the land and great wrath upon this people.
||And they will fall by the edge of the sword. And they will be led away as captives into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by the Gentiles, until the times of the nations are fulfilled.
||And there will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars. And there will be, on earth, distress among the Gentiles, out of confusion at the roaring of the sea and of the waves:
||men withering away out of fear and out of apprehension over the things that will overwhelm the whole world. For the powers of the heavens will be moved.
||And then they will see the Son of man coming on a cloud, with great power and majesty.
||But when these things begin to happen, lift up your heads and look around you, because your redemption draws near.”
