Ezekiel 13:1-7 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 God's Message came to me: 2 "Son of man, preach against the prophets of Israel who are making things up out of their own heads and calling it 'prophesying.' 3 God, the Master, pronounces doom on the empty-headed prophets who do their own thing and know nothing of what's going on! 4 Your prophets, Israel, are like jackals scavenging through the ruins. 5 They haven't lifted a finger to repair the defenses of the city and have risked nothing to help Israel stand on God's Day of Judgment. 6 All they do is fantasize comforting illusions and preach lying sermons. They say 'God says . . .' when God hasn't so much as breathed in their direction. And yet they stand around thinking that something they said is going to happen. 7 "Haven't you fantasized sheer nonsense? Aren't your sermons tissues of lies, saying 'God says . . .' when I've done nothing of the kind?
