18 And woe unto them that are with child, and unto them that give suck in those days.
19 Therefore pray ye the Lord, that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day.
20 For then, in those days, shall be great tribulation on the Jews, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; such as was not before sent upon Israel, of God, since the beginning of their kingdom, (for it is written their enemies shall scatter them,) until this time; no, nor ever shall be sent again upon Israel.
21 All these things are the beginnings of sorrows.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect's sake, according to the covenant, those days shall be shortened.
23 Behold these things I have spoken unto you concerning the Jews.
24 And then immediately after the tribulation of those days which shall come upon Jerusalem if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ; or there, believe him not.
25 For in those days there shall also arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch, that if possible, they shall deceive the very elect, who are the elect according to the covenant.
26 Behold, I speak these things unto you, for the elect's sake.
27 And ye also shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all I have told you must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
28 Behold, I have told you before, wherefore it they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth; Behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
