«Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? / Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: / That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.»

«For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, / And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: / (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: / And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) / But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, / To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, / And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things that that of Abel.»
