Again the word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, what is this proverb you [people] have about the land of Israel, which goes: The days keep passing by, and every vision fails?
Therefore say to them: This is what the Lord God says: I will put a stop to this proverb, and they will not use it again in Israel. But say to them: The days draw near, as well as the fulfillment of every vision.
For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.
But I, the Lord, will speak whatever message I will speak, and it will be done. It will no longer be delayed. For in your days, rebellious house, I will speak a message and bring it to pass." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God .
The word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, notice that the house of Israel is saying: The vision that he sees concerns many years [from now]; he prophesies about distant times.
Therefore say to them: This is what the Lord God says: None of My words will be delayed any longer. The message I speak will be fulfilled." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God .
