2 "Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination, 'Hear the word of the LORD,'
20 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows [magic charms], with which you hunt souls like birds, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that you hunt to ensnare like birds.
22 Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad, and have strengthened the hands of the wicked, so that he does not turn from his wicked way, by [falsely] promising him life.3
|Jeremiah 14:14,5:31 |
14 Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I did not send them, neither have I commanded them, nor spoken to them.1 They prophesy to you a false vision and divination, worthless from the deceit of their heart.
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their own means [authority]; and my people love to have it so;4 but what will you do in the end of it?"
