25 1Know therefore and understand that 2from the going out of the word to restore and 3build Jerusalem to the coming of an 4anointed one, a 5prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, 6but in a troubled time.
26 And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall 7be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come 8shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. 9Itsa end shall come with a flood, 10and to the end there shall be war. 11Desolations are decreed.
27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,b and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. 12And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until 13the decreed end is poured out on the desolator."
