Gospel - Lk 11:47-54

47: Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed.

48: So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your fathers; for they killed them, and you build their tombs.

49: Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, `I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,'

50: that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation,

51: from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation.

52: Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering."

53: As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard, and to provoke him to speak of many things,

54: lying in wait for him, to catch at something he might say.
