Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:
King James Bible
Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
American Standard Version
Beware therefore, lest that come upon you which is spoken in the prophets:
Young's Literal Translation
see, therefore, it may not come upon you that hath been spoken in the prophets:
Acts 13:40 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Beware - lest that come upon you, etc. - If you reject these benefits, now freely offered to you in this preaching of Christ crucified, you may expect such judgment from the hand of God as your forefathers experienced, when, for their rebellion and their contempt of his benefits, their city was taken, their temple destroyed, and themselves either slain by the sword, or carried into captivity. It is evident that St. Paul refers to Habakkuk 1:5-10; and in those verses the desolation by the Chaldeans is foretold. Never was there a prophecy more correctly and pointedly applied. These Jews did continue to slight the benefits offered to them by the Lord; and they persevered in their rebellion: what was the consequence? The Romans came, took their city, burnt their temple, slew upwards of a million of them, and either carried or sold the rest into captivity. How exactly was the prophecy in both cases fulfilled!
