Matthew 11:16-24 - An Unresponsive Generation

16 But to what shall I compare to this generation? It is like little children sitting in the markets and calling to their playmates,

17 saying, We played the flute to you, and you did not dance! We mourned to you, but you did not wail!

18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He has a demon. 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man who is a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners. But wisdom was justified by her children.

20 Then He began to upbraid the cities in which most of His mighty works were done, because they did not repent. 21 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the powerful acts which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes! 22 But I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to the heaven, shall be brought down to hell. For if the mighty works which have been done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.
