“For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”
King James Version (KJV)

specially these last 25 30 years i see and feel the dryness in everything, there was a time when people were concerned and cared for others, But now i see the third floor partying while ground floor someone has expired. there was a time when the wife would mourn a husbands death for a year and more, but now you see her in someone else s arms within a month or two. there was a time when parents were cared till the last breath, but now they are sent to the old age home on the first sign of sickness is this is not the dry wood situation that Christ was talking about.

Jesus said "don't weep for me weep for yourselves" because these women were crying, not as believers but because what they saw the condition Jesus was in, it saddened them. Jesus was refering to how much worse it would be for them in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. A slow miserable death that included starvation where some would actually eat there own children, that it would be better if they did not have any children at all or elsewhere He said better to be killed by the sword than starvation. He also referenced judgment day and the suffering they would endure then. Jesus endured great suffering because of these people who rebelled against Him but did not want His blood on their hands. They told the Romans that He claimed to be King of the Jews and that was in direct opposition to their King Caesar. They insisted the Romans condem Him under their law which they knew included the severe form of punishment learned and adopted from the barbarians, crucifition. They would have to endure more than He, so were to weep for themselves. Thank you.
