|2nd Chronicles Chapter 36 Verse 15-16||  And Jehovah, the God of their fathers, sent to them by his messengers, rising up early and sending, because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling-place:
 but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and scoffed at his prophets, until the wrath of Jehovah arose against his people, till there was no remedy.
|Jeremiah Chapter 7 Verse 25-29||  Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day, I have sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:
 yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff: they did worse than their fathers.
 And thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.
 And thou shalt say unto them, This is the nation that hath not hearkened to the voice of Jehovah their God, nor received instruction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
 Cut off thy hair, [O Jerusalem], and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the bare heights; for Jehovah hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath.
|Acts Chapter 7 Verse 52||Which of the prophets did not your fathers persecute? and they killed them that showed before of the coming of the Righteous One; of whom ye have now become betrayers and murderers; |
|1st Thessalonians Chapter 2 Verse 15||who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove out us, and pleased not God, and are contrary to all men; |
|Matthew Chapter 10 Verse 17||But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and in theirs synagogues they will scourge you; |
|Matthew Chapter 10 Verse 23||But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. |
|Matthew Chapter 5 Verse 12||Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you. |
