2 Chronicles 36:15
The LORD, the God of their ancestors, repeatedly sent his prophets to warn them, for he had compassion on his people and his Temple.
"I have punished your children, but they did not respond to my discipline. You yourselves have killed your prophets as a lion kills its prey.
Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.
"But in saying that, you testify against yourselves that you are indeed the descendants of those who murdered the prophets.
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God's messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn't let me.
When that happens, be happy! Yes, leap for joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, their ancestors treated the ancient prophets that same way.
Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more.
