2 "Judah mourns And her gates languish ; They sit on the ground in mourning, And the cry of Jerusalem has ascended.
3 "Their nobles have sent their servants for water ; They have come to the cisterns and found no water. They have returned with their vessels empty ; They have been put to shame and humiliated, And they cover their heads.

False Prophets

13 But, "Ah, Lord GOD !" I said, "Look, the prophets are telling them, 'You will not see the sword nor will you have famine, but I will give you lasting peace in this place.' "

14 Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds.
