Daniel 9:24-26 New International Version

24  "Seventy 'sevens'[1] are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish[2] transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.[3] 25  "Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[4] the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens,' and sixty-two 'sevens.' It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26  After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.[5] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.
