Luke 11:49-50

Context
11:49 For this reason also the wisdom 1  of God said, ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,’ 11:50 so that this generation may be held accountable 2  for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning 3  of the world, 4 

1 sn The expression the wisdom of God is a personification of an attribute of God that refers to his wise will.

2 tn Or “that this generation may be charged with”; or “the blood of all the prophets… may be required from this generation.” This is a warning of judgment. These people are responsible for the shedding of prophetic blood.

3 tn Or “foundation.” However, this does not suggest a time to the modern reader.

4 tn The order of the clauses in this complicated sentence has been rearranged to simplify it for the modern reader.
