But as they came closer to Jerusalem and Jesus saw the city ahead, he began to cry.
"I wish that even today you would find the way of peace. But now it is too late, and peace is hidden from you.
Before long your enemies will build ramparts against your walls and encircle you and close in on you.
They will crush you to the ground, and your children with you. Your enemies will not leave a single stone in place, because you have rejected the opportunity God offered you."
