Matthew 24:18

Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes.
All Commentaries on Matthew 24:18 Go To Matthew 24

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Under these conditions one would do well merely to escape with one’s naked body. So if anyone is on a housetop, he should not take time to run back into the house to get his clothes. For the evils are inevitable. The calamity is without end. Anyone nearby will surely perish. Therefore he adds also, “if one is in the field,” saying, “do not try to take cover or turn back to find your belongings.” For if those who are indoors flee, much more ought they that are out of doors not take refuge indoors. The Gospel of Matthew, Homily
