The word of the Lord came to me:
Mortal, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are prophesying; say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: "Hear the word of the Lord!"
Thus says the Lord God, Alas for the senseless prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel.
You have not gone up into the breaches, or repaired a wall for the house of Israel, so that it might stand in battle on the day of the Lord.
They have envisioned falsehood and lying divination; they say, "Says the Lord," when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they wait for the fulfillment of their word!
