4. The Sign to the Rejecting Generation
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered Him, saying, Teacher, we want to see a 1asign from You.
39 aBut He answered and said to them, An bevil and adulterous 1generation seeks after a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
40 For just as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish athree days and three nights, so will the bSon of Man be in the 1cheart of the earth dthree days and three nights.
41 aNinevite men will stand up in the judgment with this generation and will condemn it, because they brepented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something 1cmore than Jonah is here.
42 The aqueen of the south will rise up in the judgment with this generation and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something 1bmore than Solomon is here.
