Oct 1 You snakes, breed7 of vipers. How will you escape hell? Therefore Im sending you prophets, wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify and flog in your synagogues and persecute from city to city. Thus upon you may fall all the blood of the righteous shed on earth, from the blood of Abel8 to Zechariah Berekiah, whom you killed between the temple and the altar. Truly these things will come upon this generation.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You kill the prophets9 and stone those sent to you. How often I would have gathered your children together, like a hen gathers her chicks, but you refused. Behold, your house is left deserted and, truly, you wont see me until you say, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
