But, "Ah, LordaGOD !" I said, "Look, the prophets are telling them, 'You 1will not see the swordnor will you havefamine, but I will give you blasting2peace in thisplace.' "
Then the LORDsaid to me, "The 3prophets are prophesyingfalsehood in My name. 4I have neithersent them norcommanded them norspoken to them; they are prophesying to you a 5falsevision, divination, futility and the deception of their own cminds.
15"Thereforethussays the LORDconcerning the prophets who are prophesying in My name, although it was not I who sent them-yet they keep saying, 'There will be nosword or famine in thisland '-6by sword and faminethoseprophets shall dmeet their end !
"The people also to whom they are prophesying will be 7thrown out into the streets of Jerusalembecause of the famine and the sword ; and there will be noone to 8bury them-neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters -for I will 9pour out their own wickedness on them.
"You will saythisword to them, '10Let my eyesflowdown with tearsnight and day, And let them not cease ; For the virgin11daughter of my people has been crushed with a mightyblow, With a sorely12infectedwound.
18'If I 13go out to the country, Behold, those eslain with the sword ! Or if I enter the city, Behold, diseases of famine ! For 14bothprophet and priest Have fgone rovingabout in the land that they do not know.' "
