Luke 23.26-31

As they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus.

And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him.

But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’; and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’
“For if they do these things when the wood is green, what shall happen when it is dry?”

  1. Again, that prediction that things will not go well for Jerusalem when the consequences of all this have fully ripened. If the Romans are executing a man who has neither done violence to them, nor called for it, what will they do when open revolt comes?
