Luke 21:22-28 NWT
. . .because these are days for meting out justice, that all the things written may be fulfilled. 23 Woe to the pregnant women and the ones suckling a baby in those days! For there will be great necessity upon the land and wrath on this people; 24 and they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations, until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled. 25 "Also, there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations, not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and [its] agitation, 26 while men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 But as these things start to occur, raise yourselves erect and lift your heads up, because your deliverance is getting near."

Luke 21:22-28 ALT

For [there] will be great distress on the land and wrath among this people. (24) "And they will fall by [the] mouth [fig., edge] of the sword, and they will be led captive into all the nations. And Jerusalem will be continually trampled down by [the] Gentiles until the times of [the] Gentiles are fulfilled. (25) "And [there] will be signs in [the] sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations with perplexity [at the] roaring of [the] sea and waves; [cp. Isaiah 34:4; Joel 2:10; 2:31] (26) people fainting [or, ceasing to breathe] from fear and [the] expectation of the [things] coming upon the inhabited earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. (27) "And then they will see the Son of Humanity coming in a cloud with power and great glory! [Dan 7:13] (28) "But when these [things] are beginning to happen, straighten up and lift up your* heads, because your* redemption is drawing near."
