Then many will fall away, a and they will betray one another and hate one another.
And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
And because of the increase of lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold.
But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
And this good news b of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world, as a testimony to all the nations; and then the end will come.
"So when you see the desolating sacrilege standing in the holy place, as was spoken of by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand),
then those in Judea must flee to the mountains;
the one on the housetop must not go down to take what is in the house;
the one in the field must not turn back to get a coat.
Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days!
Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a sabbath.
