34 (A)Therefore (B)I send you (C)prophets and wise men and (D)scribes, (E)some of whom you will kill and crucify, and (F)some you will (G)flog in your synagogues and (H)persecute from town to town, 35 so that on you may come all (I)the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous (J)Abel to the blood of (K)Zechariah the son of Barachiah,[a] whom you murdered between (L)the sanctuary and (M)the altar. 36 Truly, I say to you, (N)all these things will come upon this generation.

Lament over Jerusalem

37 (O)“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that (P)kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have (Q)gathered (R)your children together (S)as a hen gathers her brood (T)under her wings, and (U)you were not willing! 38 See, (V)your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, (W)‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’”
