Matthew 23:37-39 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus Prophesies Judgment Coming to Jerusalem

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem—you are the city that murders your prophets! You are the city that stones the very messengers who were sent[a] to deliver you! So many times I have longed to gather a wayward people, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings—but you were too stubborn to let me. 38 And now it is too late, since your city will be left in ruins.[b] 39 For you will not see me again until you are able to say, ‘We welcome the one who comes to us in the name of the Lord.’”[c]
