2 Kings 21:16

16 a  Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides the sin b  that he made Judah to sin so that they did what was evil in the sight of the  Lord.

2 Kings 24:4

4and also c  for the innocent blood that he had shed. For he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the  Lord would not pardon.

2 Chronicles 24:17-22

17Now after the death of Jehoiada the princes of Judah came and paid homage to the king. Then the king listened to them. 18And they abandoned the house of the  Lord, the God of their fathers, and served d  the Asherim and the idols. And e  wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this guilt of theirs. 19 f  Yet he sent prophets among them to bring them back to the  Lord. g  These testified against them, but they would not pay attention.

Joash’s Treachery

20 h  Then the Spirit of God clothed Zechariah i  the son of Jehoiada the priest, and he stood above the people, and said to them, “Thus says God j  Why do you break the commandments of the  Lord, so that you cannot prosper? k  Because you have forsaken the  Lord, he has forsaken you.’” 21But l  they conspired against him, m  and by command of the king they stoned him with stones in the court of the house of the  Lord. 22Thus Joash the king did not remember the kindness that Jehoiada, Zechariah’s father, had shown him, but killed his son. And when he was dying, he said, “May the  Lord see n  and avenge!”

Lament over Jerusalem

31At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from z  here, for aa  Herod wants to kill you.” 32And he said to them, Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day ab  I finish my course. 33Nevertheless ac  I ad  must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that ae  a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.’ 34 af  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that ag  kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! ah  How often would I have ai  gathered aj  your children together ak  as a hen gathers her brood al  under her wings, and am  you were not willing!
