False Prophets

13 But, "Ah, Lord GOD!" I said, "Look, the prophets are telling them, 'You 1will not see the sword nor will you have famine, but I will give you lasting 2peace in this place.' "
14 Then the LORD said to me, "The 3prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. 4I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a 5false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds.
15 "Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who are prophesying in My name, although it was not I who sent them-yet they keep saying, 'There will be no sword or famine in this land '-6by sword and famine those prophets shall meet their end!
16 "The people also to whom they are prophesying will be 7thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because * of the famine and the sword; and there will be no one to 8bury them-neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters -for I will 9pour out their own wickedness on them.
17 "You will say this word to them, '10Let my eyes flow down with tears night and day, And let them not cease; For the virgin 11daughter of my people has been crushed with a mighty blow, With a sorely 12infected wound.
18 'If I 13go out to the country, Behold, those slain with the sword! Or if I enter the city, Behold, diseases of famine! For 14both prophet and priest Have gone roving about in the land that they do not know.' "
