Matthew 24:19-21

Context
24:19 Woe 1  to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! 24:20 Pray 2  that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 24:21 For then there will be great suffering 3  unlike anything that has happened 4  from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen.

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

3 tn Traditionally, “great tribulation.”

4 sn Suffering unlike anything that has happened. Some refer this event to the destruction of Jerusalem in a.d. 70. While the events of a.d. 70 may reflect somewhat the comments Jesus makes here, the reference to the scope and severity of this judgment strongly suggest that much more is in view. Most likely Jesus is referring to the great end-time judgment on Jerusalem in the great tribulation.
