Luke 21:23-24

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 1  on the earth and wrath against this people. 21:24 They 2  will fall by the edge 3  of the sword and be led away as captives 4  among all nations. Jerusalem 5  will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. 6 

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

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

3 tn Grk “by the mouth of the sword” (an idiom for the edge of a sword).

4 sn Here is the predicted judgment against the nation until the time of Gentile rule has passed: Its people will be led away as captives.

5 tn Grk “And Jerusalem.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

6 sn Until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled implies a time when Israel again has a central role in God’s plan.
