Do not listen to the false prophets who keep telling you, 'The king of Babylon will not conquer you.' They are liars.
This is what the LORD says: I have not sent these prophets! They are telling you lies in my name, so I will drive you from this land. You will all die -- you and all these prophets, too."
Then I spoke to the priests and the people and said, "This is what the LORD says: Do not listen to your prophets who claim that soon the gold utensils taken from my Temple will be returned from Babylon. It is all a lie!
Do not listen to them. Surrender to the king of Babylon, and you will live. Why should this whole city be destroyed?
If they really are the LORD's prophets, let them pray to the LORD Almighty about the gold utensils that are still left in the LORD's Temple and in the king's palace and in the palaces of Jerusalem. Let them pray that these remaining articles will not be carried away with you to Babylon!"
