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.' "
