Rulers and Prophets Denounced1 And I said:
a Hear, you heads of Jacob
and rulers of the house of Israel!
b Is it not for you to know justice?—
2you c who hate the good and love the evil,
d who tear the skin from off my people ▼
▼Hebrew from off them
and their flesh from off their bones,
3 f who eat the flesh of my people,
and flay their skin from off them,
and break their bones in pieces
and chop them up like meat in a pot,
like flesh in a cauldron.
Micah 7:2-42 g The godly has perished from the earth,
and h there is no one upright among mankind;
i they all lie in wait for blood,
and j each hunts the other with a net.
3 k Their hands are on what is evil, to do it well;
l the prince and m the judge ask for a bribe,
and the great man utters the evil desire of his soul;
thus they weave it together.
4The best of them is n like a brier,
the most upright of them a thorn hedge.
The day of o your watchmen, of your punishment, has come;
p now their confusion is at hand.
Matthew 23:34-3634 q Therefore r I send you s prophets and wise men and t scribes u some of whom you will kill and crucify, and v some you will w flog in your synagogues and x persecute from town to town, 35so that on you may come all y the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous z Abel to the blood of aa Zechariah the son of Barachiah, ▼
▼Some manuscripts omit the son of Barachiahwhom you murdered between ac the sanctuary and ad the altar. 36Truly, I say to you ae all these things will come upon this generation.
Matthew 26:59-6659Now the chief priests and the whole council ▼
▼Greek Sanhedrinag were seeking false testimony against Jesus that they might put him to death, 60but they found none ah though many false witnesses came forward. At last ai two came forward 61and said, “This man said, aj ‘I am able to ak destroy the temple of God, and to rebuild it in three days.’” 62And the high priest stood up and said, “Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?” ▼
▼Or Have you no answer to what these men testify against you?63 am But Jesus remained silent. an And the high priest said to him ao “I adjure you by ap the living God aq tell us if you are ar the Christ as the Son of God.” 64Jesus said to him, at “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on au you will see the Son of Man av seated at the right hand of Power and aw coming on the clouds of heaven.” 65Then the high priest ax tore his robes and said ay “He has uttered blasphemy. What further witnesses do we need? You have now heard his blasphemy. 66What is your judgment?” They answered az “He deserves death.”
