But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping 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 nursed.’
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 tree is green,
what will happen when it is dry?”
