CEBCommon English Bible
20“When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that its destruction is close at hand. 21At that time, those in Judea must flee to the mountains, those in the city must escape, and those in the countryside must not enter the city. 22These are the days of punishment, when everything written will find its fulfillment. 23How terrible it will be at that time for women who are pregnant or for women who are nursing their children. There will be great agony on the earth and angry judgment on this people. 24They will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken away as captives among all nations. Jerusalem will be plundered by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are concluded.
