21 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
22 "Son of man, what is this 1proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The 2days are long and every 3vision fails '?
23 "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel." But tell them, "4The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision.
24 "For there will no longer be any 5false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25 "For I the LORD will speak, and whatever 6word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in 7your days, O 8rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it," declares the Lord GOD.' "
26 Furthermore, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
27 "Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision that he sees is for 9many years from now, and he prophesies of times far off.'
28 "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "None * of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever * word I speak will be performed,""' declares the Lord GOD.
