Therefore, you are witnesses that you approvethe deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their monuments.
Yet I must travel today, tomorrow, and the next day, because it is not possible for a prophet to perish outside of Jerusalem!
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous,
and you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we wouldn’t have taken part with them in shedding the prophets’ blood.’
You, therefore, testify against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem! She who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her. How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, yet you were not willing!
Lord, they have killed Your prophets
and torn down Your altars.
I am the only one left,
and they are trying to take my life!
1 Thessalonians 2:15
who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets and persecuted us; they displease God and are hostile to everyone,
Because they poured out
the blood of the saints and the prophets,
You also gave them blood to drink;
they deserve it!
1 Kings 18:4
and took 100 prophets and hid them, 50 men to a cave, and provided them with food and water when Jezebel slaughtered the Lord’s prophets.
1 Kings 18:13
Wasn’t it reported to my lord what I did when Jezebel slaughtered the Lord’s prophets? I hid 100 of the prophets of the Lord, 50 men to a cave, and I provided them with food and water.
?ReshLord, look and consider
who You have done this to.
Should women eat their own children,
the infants they have nurtured?
Should priests and prophets
be killed in the Lord’s sanctuary?
2 Kings 9:7
You are to strike down the house of your master Ahab so that I may avenge the blood shed by the hand of Jezebel—the blood of My servants the prophets and of all the servants of the Lord.
