Luke 23:31

31 For if these things are done when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry? ”

Luke 23:31 In-Context

29 For the days are coming when they will say, ‘Fortunate indeed are the women who are childless, the wombs that have not borne a child and the breasts that have never nursed.’
30 People will beg the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and plead with the hills, ‘Bury us.’
31 For if these things are done when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry? ”
32 Two others, both criminals, were led out to be executed with him.
33 When they came to a place called The Skull, they nailed him to the cross. And the criminals were also crucified—one on his right and one on his left.
