Luke 21:21-22

Context
21:21 Then those who are in Judea must flee 1  to the mountains. Those 2  who are inside the city must depart. Those 3  who are out in the country must not enter it, 21:22 because these are days of vengeance, 4  to fulfill 5  all that is written.

1 sn Fleeing to the mountains is a key OT image: Gen 19:17; Judg 6:2; Isa 15:5; Jer 16:16; Zech 14:5.

2 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

4 tn Or “of punishment.” This is a time of judgment.

5 tn The passive construction with the infinitive πλησθῆναι (plhsqhnai) has been translated as an active construction for simplicity, in keeping with contemporary English style.
