Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
You may not go down on your faces before them or give them worship: for I, the Lord your God, am a God who will not give his honour to another; and I will send punishment on the children for the wrongdoing of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation of my haters;
And those of you who are still living will be wasting away in their sins in the land of your haters; in the sins of their fathers they will be wasting away.
And now you have come to take the place of your fathers, another generation of sinners, increasing the wrath of the Lord against Israel.
We are sinners like our fathers, we have done wrong, our acts are evil.
O Lord, shame is on us, on our kings and our rulers and our fathers, because of our sin against you.
So that you are witnesses against yourselves that you are the sons of those who put the prophets to death.
For this cause, son of man, say to the children of Israel, This is what the Lord has said: In this your fathers have further put shame on my name by doing wrong against me.
See, it is recorded before me, says the Lord: I will not keep back my hand, till I have sent punishment,
Am I not to give punishment for these things? says the Lord: will not my soul take payment from such a nation as this?
Are they moving me to wrath? says the Lord; are they not moving themselves to their shame?
This is your fate, the part measured out to you by me, says the Lord, because you have put me out of your memory and put your faith in what is false.
Make full, then, the measure of your fathers.
1 Thessalonians 2:16
Who, to make the measure of their sins complete, kept us from giving the word of salvation to the Gentiles: but the wrath of God is about to come on them in the fullest degree.
