Verse 6 (NASB)
Home New International Version God's WordTM 中文 Español Deutsch
6. And the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she might be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Symbolically, the wilderness is a place of trial and much hardship for humans; yet, it is the place of peace and confident rest for God and His people. Recall this PLACE is prepared by God (John 14:1-11, Isaiah 33:13-16).
This time period is the GREAT TRIBULATION. If it lasted any longer, all life may disappear (Matthew 24:15-22).Revelation 11:3-4) speak out, and that this is the same 42 weeks that is given to "the beast" to do his boasting (Revelation 13:5).
