Luke 21:11

Context
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.

Luke 21:23

Context
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.

1 sn See Isa 5:13-14; 13:6-16; Hag 2:6-7; Zech 14:4.

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.

3 sn See Jer 4:13-22; 14:12; 21:6-7.

4 sn Great distress means that this is a period of great judgment.
