Matthew 24:17 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Him which is on the house-top (ὁ ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος)

Thus a person could make his escape passing from roof to roof, till, at the last house, he would descend the stairs on the outside of the house, but within the exterior court. The urgency of the flight is enhanced by the fact that the stairs lead into this court. "Though you must pass by the very door of your room, do not enter to take anything out. Escape for your life."
