Matthew 23:29-34

29 a  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, 30saying, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31Thus you witness against yourselves that you are b  sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 c  Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33You serpents, d  you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to e  hell? 34 f  Therefore g  I send you h  prophets and wise men and i  scribes j  some of whom you will kill and crucify, and k  some you will l  flog in your synagogues and m  persecute from town to town,
