21:11 There will be great earthquakes, and famines 1 and plagues in various places, and there will be terrifying sights 2 and great signs 3 from heaven.
21:23 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! For there will be great distress 4 on the earth and wrath against this people.
2 tn This term, φόβητρον (fobhtron), occurs only here in the NT. It could refer to an object, event, or condition that causes fear, but in the context it is linked with great signs from heaven, so the translation “sights” was preferred.
4 sn Great distress means that this is a period of great judgment.
