|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
31 Prophets preach lies and priests hire on as their assistants. And my people love it. They eat it up! But what will you do when it's time to pick up the pieces?
31 The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?
