On that same day, some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, “Get away from here and leave this place, for Herod intends to kill you.”
Jesus said to them, “You go and tell that fox, ‘Look, today and tomorrow I cast out demons and perform healings, and on the third day I will complete my work.
Nevertheless, I must journey today, tomorrow and the next day, because it is unacceptable for a prophet to die outside of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent unto you! Have often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her young ones under wing, but you would not!
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate, and truly I say to you, you shall not perceive* me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’”
*see, but more like perceive, understand, discern, or know.
