For you, brethren, became1imitators of 2the churches of God in ChristJesus that are 3in Judea, for 4you alsoendured the samesufferings at the hands of your owncountrymen, 5even as they did from the Jews,
156who bothkilled the LordJesus and 7the prophets, and adrove us out. bThey are not pleasing to God, cbut hostile to allmen,
168hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles9so that they may be saved; with the result that they always10fill up the measure of their sins. But 11wrath has come upon them dto the utmost.
