Matthew 24:15-35

ESV 15 "So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), MSG 15 "But be ready to run for it when you see the monster of desecration set up in the Temple sanctuary. The prophet Daniel described this. If you've read Daniel, you'll know what I'm talking about. ESV 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. MSG 16 If you're living in Judea at the time, run for the hills; ESV 17 Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, MSG 17 if you're working in the yard, don't return to the house to get anything; ESV 18 and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. MSG 18 if you're out in the field, don't go back and get your coat. ESV 19 And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! MSG 19 Pregnant and nursing mothers will have it especially hard. ESV 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. MSG 20 Hope and pray this won't happen during the winter or on a Sabbath. ESV 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. MSG 21 "This is going to be trouble on a scale beyond what the world has ever seen, or will see again. ESV 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. MSG 22 If these days of trouble were left to run their course, nobody would make it. But on account of God's chosen people, the trouble will be cut short. ESV 23 Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There he is!' do not believe it. MSG 23 "If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, 'Here's the Messiah!' or points, 'There he is!' don't fall for it. ESV 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. MSG 24 Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better. ESV 25 See, I have told you beforehand. MSG 25 But I've given you fair warning. ESV 26 So, if they say to you, 'Look, he is in the wilderness,' do not go out. If they say, 'Look, he is in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. MSG 26 "So if they say, 'Run to the country and see him arrive!' or, 'Quick, get downtown, see him come!' don't give them the time of day. ESV 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. MSG 27 The Arrival of the Son of Man isn't something you go to see. He comes like swift lightning to you! ESV 28 Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. MSG 28 Whenever you see crowds gathering, think of carrion vultures circling, moving in, hovering over a rotting carcass. You can be quite sure that it's not the living Son of Man pulling in those crowds. ESV 29 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. MSG 29 "Following those hard times, Sun will fade out, moon cloud over, Stars fall out of the sky, cosmic powers tremble. ESV 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. MSG 30 "Then, the Arrival of the Son of Man! It will fill the skies - no one will miss it. Unready people all over the world, outsiders to the splendor and power, will raise a huge lament as they watch the Son of Man blazing out of heaven. ESV 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. MSG 31 At that same moment, he'll dispatch his angels with a trumpet-blast summons, pulling in God's chosen from the four winds, from pole to pole. ESV 32 "From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. MSG 32 "Take a lesson from the fig tree. From the moment you notice its buds form, the merest hint of green, you know summer's just around the corner. ESV 33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. MSG 33 So it is with you: When you see all these things, you'll know he's at the door. ESV 34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. MSG 34 Don't take this lightly. I'm not just saying this for some future generation, but for all of you. This age continues until all these things take place. ESV 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. MSG 35 Sky and earth will wear out; my words won't wear out.
