Luke 11:44-54

ESV 44 Woe to you! For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without knowing it." MSG 44 Frauds! You're just like unmarked graves: People walk over that nice, grassy surface, never suspecting the rot and corruption that is six feet under." ESV 45 One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying these things you insult us also." MSG 45 One of the religion scholars spoke up: "Teacher, do you realize that in saying these things you're insulting us?" ESV 46 And he said, "Woe to you lawyers also! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. MSG 46 He said, "Yes, and I can be even more explicit. You're hopeless, you religion scholars! You load people down with rules and regulations, nearly breaking their backs, but never lift even a finger to help. ESV 47 Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. MSG 47 "You're hopeless! You build tombs for the prophets your ancestors killed. ESV 48 So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their tombs. MSG 48 The tombs you build are monuments to your murdering ancestors more than to the murdered prophets. ESV 49 Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' MSG 49 That accounts for God's Wisdom saying, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, but they'll kill them and run them off.' ESV 50 so that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be charged against this generation, MSG 50 What it means is that every drop of righteous blood ever spilled from the time earth began until now,. ESV 51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be required of this generation. MSG 51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was struck down between altar and sanctuary, is on your heads. Yes, it's on the bill of this generation and this generation will pay. ESV 52 Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering." MSG 52 "You're hopeless, you religion scholars! You took the key of knowledge, but instead of unlocking doors, you locked them. You won't go in yourself, and won't let anyone else in either." ESV 53 As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard and to provoke him to speak about many things, MSG 53 As soon as Jesus left the table, the religion scholars and Pharisees went into a rage. They went over and over everything he said, ESV 54 lying in wait for him, to catch him in something he might say. MSG 54 plotting how they could trap him in something from his own mouth.
