24 Revised Standard Version Passage

15"So when you see the desolating sacrilege spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),The Great Tribulation Mt.24.15-28 (Olivet) | Mk.13.14-23 | Lk.21.20-24
16then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; 
17let him who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house; 
18and let him who is in the field not turn back to take his mantle. 
19And alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days! 
20Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a sabbath. 
21For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.- For then there will be great tribulation Mt.24.21 | Dn.12.1 | Jl.2.2
22And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 
23Then if any one says to you, 'Lo, here is the Christ!' or 'There he is!' do not believe it. 
24For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 
25Lo, I have told you beforehand. 
26So, if they say to you, 'Lo, he is in the wilderness,' do not go out; if they say, 'Lo, he is in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. 
27For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man. 
28Wherever the body is, there the eagles Or: vultures will be gathered together.
