|Wisdom 2: 12, 17 - 20
||"Let us lie in wait for the righteous man, because he is inconvenient to us and opposes our actions; he reproaches us for sins against the law, and accuses us of sins against our training.
||Let us see if his words are true, and let us test what will happen at the end of his life;
||for if the righteous man is God's son, he will help him, and will deliver him from the hand of his adversaries.
||Let us test him with insult and torture, that we may find out how gentle he is, and make trial of his forbearance.
||Let us condemn him to a shameful death, for, according to what he says, he will be protected."
