Do not listen to the false prophets (Jer 27:14-27:15)

“‘Do not listen

To the words

Of the prophets

Who are telling you

Not to serve

The king of Babylon.

They are prophesying

A lie to you.

I have not sent them.’

Says Yahweh.

‘But they are prophesying falsely

In my name.

The result is

That I will drive you out.

You will perish,

You,

With the prophets

Who are prophesying to you.’”

Once again, Yahweh repeats his warning about the false prophets. Anyone who is telling them not to serve the king of Babylon is lying. The king of Judah and his people were not to listen to these false prophets and their prophecies because Yahweh had not sent them. If they listen to these lying prophets, then Yahweh will drive them out. They will perish along with these false prophets.
