But I said, "Ah, Sovereign LORD, the prophets1 keep telling them, 'You will not see the sword or suffer famine.2 Indeed, I will give you lasting peace3 in this place.' "
Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies4 in my name. I have not sent5 them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions,6 divinations,7 idolatriesa and the delusions of their own minds.
Therefore, this is what the LORD says about the prophets who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, 'No sword or famine will touch this land.' Those same prophets will perish8 by sword and famine.9
