" 'By what means?' the LORD asked. " 'I will go out and be a lying1 spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,' he said. " 'You will succeed in enticing him,' said the LORD. 'Go and do it.'
"So now the LORD has put a lying2 spirit in the mouths of all these prophets3 of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster4 for you."
Then Zedekiah5 son of Kenaanah went up and slapped6 Micaiah in the face. "Which way did the spirit froma the LORD go when he went from me to speak7 to you?" he asked.
Micaiah replied, "You will find out on the day you go to hide8 in an inner room."
