Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 34 Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will flog in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city.

 35 So that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berechiah, whom you killed between the temple and the altar. [As the Jews killed the prophets, thinking them evil; as the Jews killed Jesus and Stephen, thinking them evil; as the Roman Catholics tortured and killed 9,000,000 souls in their inquisitions, thinking them evil; so did the Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Baptists, and Congregationalists imprison tens of thousands, seize property of tens of thousands, and kill a thousand early Quakers — thinking them evil.]
