“Yahweh said to me.
‘The prophets are prophesying lies
In my name.
I did not send them.
I did not command them.
I did not speak to them.
They are prophesying to you
A lying vision,
A worthless divination,
The deceit of their own minds.
Therefore thus says Yahweh
Concerning the prophets
Who prophesy in my name,
Although I did not send them.’
‘Sword shall not come on this land.
Famine shall not come on this land.’
By sword and famine
Those prophets shall be consumed
Or with famine.
The people to whom they prophesy
Shall be cast out into the streets of Jerusalem.
They will be the victims of famine.
They will be the victims of the sword.
There shall be no one to bury them,
I will pour out their wickedness
Yahweh spoke again to Jeremiah about the false prophets who told them not to worry about the sword or famine. Yahweh said that they were lying false prophets pretending to prophesize in his name. Yahweh did not send them or command them to speak. They were, in fact, prophesying a lying vision or a worthless prediction. They were deceived in their own minds. He never told them that there would be no sword or famine. Instead, these prophets would be consumed by the sword or famine. Those listening to them will also be consumed, that includes themselves, their wives, and their children. Yahweh was going to pour out all their wickedness upon them.
