“Fil ye vp then the measure of your fathers.”
King James Version (KJV)
29. Woe vnto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because ye build the tombes of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30. And say, If wee had beene in the dayes of our fathers, wee would not haue bene partakers with them in the blood of the Prophets. 31. Wherefore ye bee witnesses vnto your selues, that yee are the children of them which killed the Prophets. 32. Fil ye vp then the measure of your fathers. 33. Yee serpents, yee generation of vipers, How can yee escape the damnation of hell? 34. ¶ Wherefore behold, I send vnto you Prophets, and wisemen, and Scribes, and some of them yee shall kill and crucifie, and some of them shall yee scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from citie to citie: 35. That vpon you may come all the righteous blood shed vpon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, vnto the blood of Zacharias, sonne of Barachias, whom yee slew betweene the temple and the altar.
