24 “Seventy ‘sevens’[a] are decreed for your people and your holy city(A) to finish[b] transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone(B) for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness,(C) to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.[c]

25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild(D) Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[d](E) the ruler,(F) comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.(G) 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death(H) and will have nothing.[e] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood:(I) War will continue until the end, and desolations(J) have been decreed.(K) 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[f] In the middle of the ‘seven’[g] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[h] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed(L) is poured out on him.[i][j]

The days of punishment(A) are coming,
    the days of reckoning(B) are at hand.
    Let Israel know this.
Because your sins(C) are so many
    and your hostility so great,

    the inspired person a maniac.(E)
