Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple,
and His disciples came up
to show Him the buildings of the temple.
And Jesus said to them,
"Do you not see all these things?
Assuredly, I say to you,
not one stone shall be left here upon another,
that shall not be thrown down."
Today is the ninth day of Av.
On the 9th. day of Av, in 586 B.C.E.,
the Temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzer, King of Babylonia.
70 years later, the Second Temple was finished.
(Defiled in 168 B.C.E. then
rebuilt by Herod 20-19 B.C.E.)
On the 9th. of Av, in 70 C.E., Roman legions, under Titus,
set the Temple on fire and left it a heap of ruins.
