Therefore, hear the word of the LORD, all you exiles whom I have sent1 away from Jerusalem to Babylon.
This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says about Ahab son of Kolaiah and Zedekiah son of Maaseiah, who are prophesying lies2 to you in my name: "I will hand them over to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will put them to death before your very eyes.
Because of them, all the exiles from Judah who are in Babylon will use this curse: 'The LORD treat you like Zedekiah and Ahab, whom the king of Babylon burned3 in the fire.'
For they have done outrageous things in Israel; they have committed adultery4 with their neighbors' wives and in my name have spoken lies, which I did not tell them to do. I know5 it and am a witness6 to it," declares the LORD.
