Bible: Matthew 23:34-38
23:34 “For this reason I 1 am sending you prophets and wise men and experts in the law, 2 some of whom you will kill and crucify, 3 and some you will flog 4 in your synagogues 5 and pursue from town to town, 23:35 so that on you will come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, 6 whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 23:36 I tell you the truth, 7 this generation will be held responsible for all these things! 8
Judgment on Israel
23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, 9 you who kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! 10 How often I have longed 11 to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but 12 you would have none of it! 13 23:38 Look, your house is left to you desolate!
