The false wicked prophets (Ezek 22:28-22:28)

“The Jerusalem prophets

Have smeared

Whitewash,

On their behalf.

They saw false visions.

They divined lies

For them.

Saying!

‘Thus says Yahweh God.’

When Yahweh

Has not spoken.”

The prophets of Jerusalem were liars. They smeared whitewash, saying that everything was okay with them. They saw false visions and forecast lies. They would often say ‘Thus spoke Yahweh God,’ when in fact Yahweh had not spoken. These prophets were misleading the people.
