Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The word of the LORD came to me, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Yisra'el who prophesy, and say you to those who prophesy out of their own heart, Hear you the word of the LORD: 2 "Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: 'Hear the word of the LORD!
3 Thus says the Lord GOD, Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 3 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!
4 Yisra'el, your prophets have been like foxes in the waste places. 4 Your prophets, O Israel, are like jackals among ruins.
5 You have not gone up into the gaps, neither built up the wall for the house of Yisra'el, to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 5 You have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the LORD.
6 They have seen falsehood and lying divination, who say, the LORD says; but the LORD has not sent them: and they have made men to hope that the word would be confirmed. 6 Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. They say, "The LORD declares," when the LORD has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled.
