9 When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

Read Luke 21:9 Using Other Translations

But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified, for these things must first take place, but the end will not be at once."
And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place first, but the end won’t follow immediately.”

What does Luke 21:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 21:9

But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions
Or seditions and tumults; "wars" may design the wars of the Romans, against the Jews; and the "commotions", or seditions, the internal troubles among themselves: be not terrified;
as if the destruction of the nation, city, and temple, would be at once: for these things must first come to pass, but the end is not by
and by;
or "immediately". The Syriac, Arabic, and Persic versions leave out this last word, and read, as in (See Gill on Matthew 24:6).
