A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
But he answered, "Only a wicked and faithless age insists upon a sign, and no sign will be given it but the sign of the prophet Jonah.
And he sighed deeply and said, "Why do the men of this day ask for a sign? I tell you, no sign will be given them."
He said much more besides in giving his testimony, and urged them to save themselves from that crooked age.
As the crowds pressed a round him, he went on to say, "This is a wicked age! It demands a sign, and no sign will be given it but the sign of Jonah.
Leave them alone. They are blind guides! But if one blind man leads another, they will both fall into the ditch!"
And they began to beg him to leave their district.
But as they contradicted and abused him, he shook his clothes in protest, and said to them, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am not to blame for it! After this I will go to the heathen."
