HOME | NEB.Books | notes
|20||Ὅταν δὲ ἰδητε κυκλουμένην ὑπὸ στρατοπέδων Ἰερουσαλήμ, τότε γνῶτε ὅτι Ἤγγικεν ἡ ἐρήμωσις αὐτῆς.
||'But when you see Jerusalem encircled by armies, then you may be sure that her destruction is near.||The Destruction of Jerusalem Foretold Lk.21.20-24 | Mt.24.15-21 | Mk.13.14-19
|21||τότε οἱ ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ φευγέτωσαν εἰς τὰ ὀρη, καὶ οἱ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ἐκχωρείτωσαν, καὶ οἱ ἐν ταῖς χώραις μὴ εἰσερχέσθωσαν εἰς αὐτήν,
||Then those who are in Judaea must take to the hills; those who are in the city itself must leave it, and those who are out in the country must not enter;||
|22||ὁτι ἡμέραι ἐκδικήσεως αὗταί εἰσιν τοῦ πλησθῆναι πάντα τὰ γεγραμμένα.
||because this is the time of retribution, when all that stands written is to be fulfilled.||
|23||οὐαὶ ταῖς ἐν γαστρὶ ἐχούσαις καὶ ταῖς θηλαζούσαις ἐν ἐκείναις ταῖς ἡμέραις· ἐσται γὰρ ἀνάγκη μεγάλη ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ὀργὴ τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ,
||Alas for women who are with child in those days, or have children at the breast! For there will be great distress in the land and a terrible judgement upon this people.||
|24||καὶ πεσοῦνται στόματι μαχαίρης καὶ αἰχμαλωτισθήσονται εἰς τὰ ἐθνη πάντα, καὶ Ἰερουσαλὴμ ἐσται πατουμένη ὑπὸ ἐθνῶν, ἀχρι οὗ πληρωθῶσιν καιροὶ ἐθνῶν.
||They will fall at the sword's point; they will be carried captive into all countries; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by foreigners until their day has run its course.|
