"You stiff-necked people,1 with uncircumcised hearts2 and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!
Was there ever a prophet your fathers did not persecute?3 They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him4--
you who have received the law that was put into effect through angels5 but have not obeyed it."
