Matthew 23:32-38 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
32 1Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, 2you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to 3hell? 34 4Therefore 5I send you 6prophets and wise men and 7scribes, 8some of whom you will kill and crucify, and 9some you will 10flog in your synagogues and 11persecute from town to town, 35 so that on you may come all 12the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent 13Abel to the blood of 14Zechariah the son of Barachiah,a whom you murdered between 15the sanctuary and 16the altar. 36 Truly, I say to you, 17all these things will come upon this generation.#rl

Lament over Jerusalem

37 18"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that 19kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have 20gathered 21your children together 22as a hen gathers her brood 23under her wings, and 24you would not! 38 See, 25your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, 26'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'"
