Luke 13:23-35 American Standard Version

23  And one said unto him, Lord, are they few that are saved? And he said unto them, 24  Strive to enter in by the narrow door: for many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25  When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, open to us; and he shall answer and say to you, I know you not whence ye are; 26  then shall ye begin to say, We did eat and drink in thy presence, and thou didst teach in our streets; 27  and he shall say, I tell you, I know not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28  There shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and yourselves cast forth without. 29  And they shall come from the east and west, and from the north and south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30  And behold, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last.

Jesus Laments over Jerusalem

31  In that very hour there came certain Pharisees, saying to him, Get thee out, and go hence: for Herod would fain kill thee. 32  And he said unto them, Go and say to that fox, Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third [day] I am perfected. 33  Nevertheless I must go on my way to-day and to-morrow and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. 34  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killeth the prophets, and stoneth them that are sent unto her! how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen [gathereth] her own brood under her wings, and ye would not! 35  Behold, your house is left unto you [desolate]: and I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
