Hope that it is not in the winter (Mk 13:18-13:18)

“Pray!

That it may not be

In winter!”

 

προσεύχεσθε δὲ ἵνα μὴ γένηται χειμῶνος·

 

There is something similar in Matthew, chapter 24:20, but not in Luke.  Mark indicated that Jesus said that they should pray (προσεύχεσθε δὲ) that their flight would not happen in the winter (ἵνα μὴ γένηται χειμῶνος).  Matthew added the comment about the Sabbath, since Matthew considered himself and the followers of Jesus as faithful Jews.  However, Mark made no mention about fleeing on the Sabbath.
