"For indeed, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and everyone who commits wickedness will become stubble. The coming day will consume them," says the LORD of Hosts, "not leaving them root or branches.

18
Woe to you who long for the Day of the LORD! What will the Day of the LORD be for you? It will be darkness and not light.
19
It will be like a man who flees from a lion only to have a bear confront him. He goes home and rests his hand against the wall only to have a snake bite him.
20
Won't the Day of the LORD be darkness rather than light, even gloom without any brightness in it?

7
When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to the place of his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?
8
Therefore produce fruit consistent with repentance.
9
And don't presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you that God is able to raise up children for Abraham from these stones!
10
Even now the ax is ready to strike the root of the trees! Therefore every tree that doesn't produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11
"I baptize you with water for repentance, but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to take off His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
12
His winnowing shovel is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor and gather His wheat into the barn. But the chaff He will burn up with fire that never goes out."

31
"Which of the two did his father's will?" "The first," they said. Jesus said to them, "I assure you: Tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God before you!
32
For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you didn't believe him. Tax collectors and prostitutes did believe him, but you, when you saw it, didn't even change your minds then and believe him.
33
"Listen to another parable: There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a winepress in it, and built a watchtower. He leased it to tenant farmers and went away.
34
When the grape harvest drew near, he sent his slaves to the farmers to collect his fruit.
35
But the farmers took his slaves, beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.
36
Again, he sent other slaves, more than the first group, and they did the same to them.
37
Finally, he sent his son to them. 'They will respect my son,' he said.
38
"But when the tenant farmers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance!'
39
So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
40
Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?"
41
"He will completely destroy those terrible men," they told Him, "and lease his vineyard to other farmers who will give him his produce at the harvest."
42
Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This came from the Lord and is wonderful in our eyes?
43
Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing its fruit.
44
[[Whoever falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder!"]]

"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You lock up the kingdom of heaven from people. For you don't go in, and you don't allow those entering to go in.
14
[["Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You devour widows' houses and make long prayers just for show. This is why you will receive a harsher punishment.]]
15
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as fit for hell as you are!
16
"Woe to you, blind guides, who say, 'Whoever takes an oath by the sanctuary, it means nothing. But whoever takes an oath by the gold of the sanctuary is bound by his oath.'
17
Blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the sanctuary that sanctified the gold?
18
Also, 'Whoever takes an oath by the altar, it means nothing. But whoever takes an oath by the gift that is on it is bound by his oath.'
19
Blind people! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift?
20
Therefore the one who takes an oath by the altar takes an oath by it and by everything on it.
21
The one who takes an oath by the sanctuary takes an oath by it and by Him who dwells in it.
22
And the one who takes an oath by heaven takes an oath by God's throne and by Him who sits on it.
23
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You pay a tenth of mint, dill, and cumin, yet you have neglected the more important matters of the law-- justice, mercy, and faith. These things should have been done without neglecting the others.
24
Blind guides! You strain out a gnat, yet gulp down a camel!
25
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence!
26
Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup, so the outside of it may also become clean.
27
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men's bones and every impurity.
28
In the same way, on the outside you seem righteous to people, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous,
30
and you say, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we wouldn't have taken part with them in shedding the prophets' blood.'
31
You therefore testify against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
32
Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers' sins!
33
"Snakes! Brood of vipers! How can you escape being condemned to hell?
34
This is why I am sending you prophets, sages, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will flog in your synagogues and hound from town to town.
35
So all the righteous blood shed on the earth will be charged to you, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.

37
As He was speaking, a Pharisee asked Him to dine with him. So He went in and reclined at the table.
38
When the Pharisee saw this, he was amazed that He did not first perform the ritual washing before dinner.
39
But the Lord said to him: "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and evil.
40
Fools! Didn't He who made the outside make the inside too?
41
But give to charity what is within, and then everything is clean for you.
42
"But woe to you Pharisees! You give a tenth of mint, rue, and every kind of herb, and you bypass justice and love for God. These things you should have done without neglecting the others.

"Woe to you Pharisees! You love the front seat in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
44
"Woe to you! You are like unmarked graves; the people who walk over them don't know it."
45
One of the experts in the law answered Him, "Teacher, when You say these things You insult us too."
46
Then He said: "Woe also to you experts in the law! You load people with burdens that are hard to carry, yet you yourselves don't touch these burdens with one of your fingers.
47
"Woe to you! You build monuments to the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

52
"Woe to you experts in the law! You have taken away the key of knowledge! You didn't go in yourselves, and you hindered those who were going in."
53
When He left there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to oppose Him fiercely and to cross-examine Him about many things;
54
they were lying in wait for Him to trap Him in something He said.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_42 21:36
But be alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place and to stand before the Son of Man."

42
They were saying, "Isn't this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can He now say, 'I have come down from heaven'?"
43
Jesus answered them, "Stop complaining among yourselves.
44
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up on the last day.

41
You're doing what your father does." "We weren't born of sexual immorality," they said. "We have one Father-- God."
42
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I came from God and I am here. For I didn't come on My own, but He sent Me.
43
Why don't you understand what I say? Because you cannot listen to My word.
44
You are of your father the Devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of liars.
45
Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.
46
Who among you can convict Me of sin? If I tell the truth, why don't you believe Me?
47
The one who is from God listens to God's words. This is why you don't listen, because you are not from God."
48
The Jews responded to Him, "Aren't we right in saying that You're a Samaritan and have a demon?"

39
Jesus said, "I came into this world for judgment, in order that those who do not see will see and those who do see will become blind."
40
Some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things and asked Him, "We aren't blind too, are we?"
41
"If you were blind," Jesus told them, "you wouldn't have sin. But now that you say, 'We see'-- your sin remains.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_43 15:22-24
22
If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin. Now they have no excuse for their sin.
23
The one who hates Me also hates My Father.
24
If I had not done the works among them that no one else has done, they would not have sin. Now they have seen and hated both Me and My Father.

52
Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They even killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become.
53
You received the law under the direction of angels and yet have not kept it."
54
When they heard these things, they were enraged in their hearts and gnashed their teeth at him.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_45 9:31-33
31
But Israel, pursuing the law for righteousness, has not achieved the law.
32
Why is that? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone.
33
As it is written: Look! I am putting a stone in Zion to stumble over, and a rock to trip over, yet the one who believes on Him will not be put to shame.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_45 11:5-10
5
In the same way, then, there is also at the present time a remnant chosen by grace.
6
Now if by grace, then it is not by works; otherwise grace ceases to be grace.
7
What then? Israel did not find what it was looking for, but the elect did find it. The rest were hardened,
8
as it is written: God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear, to this day.
9
And David says: Let their feasting become a snare and a trap, a pitfall and a retribution to them.
