1 Kings 19:10; 2 Chronicles 36:16; Jeremiah 2:30; Matthew 23:31; Matthew 23:37; Matthew 5:12; Matthew 21:35
10 He said, “I have been very xjealous for the Lord, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, ythrown down your altars, and zkilled your prophets with the sword, aand I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.”
16 dBut they kept mocking the messengers of God, edespising his words and scoffing at his prophets, funtil the wrath of the Lord rose against his people, until there was no remedy.
30 In vain have I vstruck your children;
they took no correction;
wyour own sword devoured your prophets
like a ravening lion.
31 Thus you witness against yourselves that you are tsons of those who murdered the prophets.
Lament over Jerusalem
37 k“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that lkills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have mgathered nyour children together oas a hen gathers her brood punder her wings, and qyou were not willing!
12 iRejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for jso they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
35 vAnd the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and wstoned another.
