141Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are saying to you, 'You shall not serve the king of Babylon,'2for it is a lie that they are prophesying to you.
I have not sent them, declares the LORD, but 3they are prophesying falsely in my name, with the result that I will drive you out and you will perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying to you."
Then I spoke to the priests and to all this people, saying, "Thus says the LORD: 4Do not listen to the words of your prophets who are prophesying to you, saying, 5'Behold, the vessels of the LORD's house will now shortly be brought back from Babylon,'6for it is a lie that they are prophesying to you.
177Do not listen to them; 8serve the king of Babylon and live. Why should this city 9become a desolation?
If they are prophets, and if the word of the LORD is with them, then 10let them intercede with the LORD of hosts, 11that the vessels that are left in the house of the LORD, in the house of the king of Judah, and in Jerusalem may not go to Babylon.
