Mark 13:16 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 13:16

And let him that is in the field
At work, in any sort of business there,

not turn back again:
either to his own house, or rather to that part of the field where he laid down his clothes:

for to take up his garment;
but let him flee without it, or otherwise he would be in great danger; (See Gill on Matthew 24:18).

Mark 13:16 In-Context

14 "But be ready to run for it when you see the monster of desecration set up where it should never be. You who can read, make sure you understand what I'm talking about. If you're living in Judea at the time, run for the hills;
15 if you're working in the yard, don't go back to the house to get anything;
16 if you're out in the field, don't go back to get your coat.
17 Pregnant and nursing mothers will have it especially hard.
18 Hope and pray this won't happen in the middle of winter.
