Have ye not seen a vain vision
A vision only in pretence, and not in reality; the effect of
their own fancy, and not anything shown them by the Lord:
and have ye not spoken a lying divination;
delivered out a known lie, saying they had it from the Lord, when
they had it not; or a prophecy that will deceive, and be without
effect, and in the issue prove a falsehood: whereas ye say,
the Lord saith [it]; albeit I have not spoken?
this is a proof that what they gave out for a vision and prophecy
was a vain and false one; seeing they pretended they had it from
the Lord, when he never spoke a word to them, or by them.
