The sun shall go down upon the prophets, and the day shall be black over them; 6 Therefore night will come over you, without visions, and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them.
7 the seers shall be disgraced, and the diviners put to shame; they shall all cover their lips, for there is no answer from God. 7 The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God."
