34 I will send you prophets and wise men and teachers of religious law. You will kill some by crucifixion and whip others in your synagogues, chasing them from city to city.
35 As a result, you will become guilty of murdering all the godly people from righteous Abel to Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered in the Temple between the altar and the sanctuary.
36 I assure you, all the accumulated judgment of the centuries will break upon the heads of this very generation.
37 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God's messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn't let me.
38 And now look, your house is left to you, empty and desolate.
39 For I tell you this, you will never see me again until you say, `Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord!'* "1
