“Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 23:36 All these things shall come upon this generation. As the Amorites were spared until "their iniquity was full" (Ge 15:16), so the iniquity of Israel was allowed to accumulate from age to age, till in that generation it came to the full, and the collected vengeance of justice broke at once upon it. So it is often in the destruction of a nation. The French Revolution of 1793 is another example.
