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)
