Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies1 in my name. I have not sent2 them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions,3 divinations,4 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 perish5 by sword and famine.616
And the people they are prophesying to will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and sword. There will be no one to bury7 them or their wives, their sons or their daughters.8 I will pour out on them the calamity they deserve.9
