And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,||
Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say
thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of
"Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy."
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their
own spirit, and have seen nothing!||
O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.||
Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house
of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.||
They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and
the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they
would confirm the word.||
Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination,
whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?||
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen
lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.||
And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine
lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be
written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into
the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.||
Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and
there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with
Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall:
there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall
fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.||
Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the
daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?||
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind
in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and
great hailstones in my fury to consume it.||
|13:14 So will I break down the wall
that ye have daubed with untempered morter,
and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be
discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall
know that I am the LORD.||
(13:14-15) God gets mad at a wall and destroys it, along with those who worked on it.
(13:14) "So will I break down the wall ... and ye shall know that I am the LORD."
(13:15) "Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall."
Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it
with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more,
neither they that daubed it;
To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and
which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord
Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy
people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against
"Woe the the women ... Behold, I am against your pillows!"
(13:17) "Son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart.
(13:18) "Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows ... and make kerchiefs ... to hunt souls!"
(13:20) "Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly,
and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly."
(13:21) "Your kerchiefs also will I tear ... and ye shall know that I am the LORD."
And say, Thus saith
the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and
make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt
the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
And will ye pollute me
among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the
souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live,
by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye
there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms,
and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
Your kerchiefs also
will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no
more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.||
Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have
not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not
return from his wicked way, by promising him life:||
Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will
deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
