Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:2 - Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:9 - Concerning the prophets:
My heart is broken within me;
all my bones shake;
I am like a drunken man,
like a man overcome by wine,
because of the LORD
and because of his holy words.

because of the curse the land mourns,
and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up.
Their course is evil,
and their might is not right.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:11 - “Both prophet and priest are ungodly;
even in my house I have found their evil,
declares the LORD.

like slippery paths in the darkness,
into which they shall be driven and fall,
for I will bring disaster upon them
in the year of their punishment,
declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:13 - In the prophets of Samaria
I saw an unsavory thing:
they prophesied by Baal
and led my people Israel astray.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:14 - But in the prophets of Jerusalem
I have seen a horrible thing:
they commit adultery and walk in lies;
they strengthen the hands of evildoers,
so that no one turns from his evil;
all of them have become like Sodom to me,
and its inhabitants like Gomorrah.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:15 - Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets:
“Behold, I will feed them with bitter food
and give them poisoned water to drink,
for from the prophets of Jerusalem
ungodliness has gone out into all the land.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:16 - Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:17 - They say continually to those who despise the word of the LORD, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:18 - For who among them has stood in the council of the LORD
to see and to hear his word,

I did not speak to them,
yet they prophesied.

and from the evil of their deeds.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:26 - How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart,

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:28 - Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:29 - Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:33 - “When one of this people, or a prophet or a priest asks you, ‘What is the burden of the LORD?’ you shall say to them, ‘You are the burden,[fn] and I will cast you off, declares the LORD.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:34 - And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, ‘The burden of the LORD,’ I will punish that man and his household.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:35 - Thus shall you say, every one to his neighbor and every one to his brother, ‘What has the LORD answered?’ or ‘What has the LORD spoken?’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:36 - But ‘the burden of the LORD’ you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man’s own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:37 - Thus you shall say to the prophet, ‘What has the LORD answered you?’ or ‘What has the LORD spoken?’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:38 - But if you say, ‘The burden of the LORD,’ thus says the LORD, ‘Because you have said these words, “The burden of the LORD,” when I sent to you, saying, “You shall not say, ‘The burden of the LORD,’”
