Jeremiah 23:11-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
11 "Both prophet and priest are godless;1 even in my temple2 I find their wickedness," declares the LORD. 12 "Therefore their path will become slippery;3 they will be banished to darkness and there they will fall. I will bring disaster on them in the year they are punished,4" declares the LORD. 13 "Among the prophets of Samaria I saw this repulsive thing: They prophesied by Baal5 and led my people Israel astray.6 14 And among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible:7 They commit adultery and live a lie.8 They strengthen the hands of evildoers,9 so that no one turns from his wickedness.10 They are all like Sodom11 to me; the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah." 15 Therefore, this is what the LORD Almighty says concerning the prophets: "I will make them eat bitter food and drink poisoned water,12 because from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness13 has spread throughout the land." 16 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Do not listen14 to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions15 from their own minds, not from the mouth16 of the LORD. 17 They keep saying17 to those who despise me, 'The LORD says: You will have peace.'18 And to all who follow the stubbornness19 of their hearts they say, 'No harm20 will come to you.' 18 But which of them has stood in the council21 of the LORD to see or to hear his word? Who has listened and heard his word? 19 See, the storm22 of the LORD will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind23 swirling down on the heads of the wicked 20 The anger24 of the LORD will not turn back25 until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. 21 I did not send26 these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied
