1 Thessalonians 2:14-16

14For you, brothers a  became imitators of b  the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea. For c  you suffered the same things from your own countrymen d  as they did from the Jews
The Greek word Ioudaioi can refer to Jewish religious leaders and others under their influence, who opposed the Christian faith in that time
15 f  who killed both the Lord Jesus and g  the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and h  oppose all mankind 16 i  by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles that they might be saved—so as always j  to fill up the measure of their sins. But k  wrath has come upon them at last!
Or completely, or forever
