    Default Run To The Hills

    hello! I am new here, it is a newly discovered heaven for me because I have been writing a book on a certain band (most of you might have guessed it from the topic title) for a long time and there are several sayings the said band has used in its lyrics that I'd like to research. Expect more to come, but this is the first one. Does anybody know where this saying originates from? Thanks!

    If you run or head for the hills you head for a safer place.

    Heading for safety / away from a dangerous situation.

    Possibly a biblical reference (many sayings are) as Christs followers were advised to flee Jerusalem prior to it's destruction in 70CE into the hills of Judea.

    Mathew chapter 24 verse 16: Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains.

    (King James Version) but basically the same in all translations.

    This is part of the 'signs of the times' prophesy.
