And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto athem that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, ||band have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are clike the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up dinto the ||gaps, neither dmade up the hedge for the house of Israel dto stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. eThey have seen vanity eand lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and fthe Lord hath not sent them: and they have gmade others to hope that they would confirm the word. Have ye not seen ea vain vision, and have ye not spoken ea lying divination, hwhereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken? Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, ibehold, I am against you, saith the Lord God. And mine hand shall be upon ethe prophets that see vanity, eand that divine lies: they shall not be in the ||assembly of my people, neither kshall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, lneither shall they enter into the land of Israel; lmand ye shall know that I am the Lord God. 10 nBecause, even because they have seduced my people, osaying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up ||a wall, and, lo, others pdaubed it with untempered morter: 11 Say unto them pwhich daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be qran overflowing shower; and ye, O qgreat hailstones, shall fall; and sta stormy wind shall rend it. 12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with ta stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be qan overflowing shower in mine anger, and qgreat hailstones in my fury to consume it. 14 So will I break down the wall that pye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: mand ye shall know that I am the Lord. 15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them pthat have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and owhich see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.

17 Likewise, thou son of man, uset thy face against vthe daughters of thy people, avwhich prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, 18 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the women wthat sew pillows to all ||xarmholes, and ymake kerchiefs upon the head of every stature wto hunt souls! zWill ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? 19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and afor pieces of bread, bto slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against cyour pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls ||to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. 21 cYour kerchiefs also will I tear, and ddeliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; eand ye shall know that I am the Lord. 22 Because fwith lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and gstrengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, ||by promising him life: 23 Therefore hye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for dI will deliver my people out of your hand: eand ye shall know that I am the Lord.

14 Then acame certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me. And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put bthe stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: cshould I be inquired of at all by them? Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth bthe stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the Lord will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; dThat I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all eestranged from me through their idols. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn ||fyourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations. For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which eseparateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth bthe stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to inquire of him concerning me; I the Lord will answer him by myself: And gI will set my face against that man, and will make him a hsign and ia proverb, and gI will cut him off from the midst of my people; kand ye shall know that I am the Lord. And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, lI the Lord have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. 10 And they shall bear mthe punishment of their iniquity: mthe punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him; 11 That the house of Israel nmay go no more astray from me, neither obe polluted any more with all their transgressions; but pthat they may be my people, pand I may be their God, saith the Lord God.

12 The word of the Lord came again to me, saying, 13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me qby trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and rwill break the staff of the bread thereof, and rrwill send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: 14 sThough these three men, tNoah, uDaniel, and vJob, were in it, wthey should deliver but their own souls xby their righteousness, saith the Lord God. 15 If I cause ynoisome beasts to pass through the land, and they ||spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts: 16 sThough these three men were in it, zas I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but zzthe land shall be desolate. 17 Or if aI bring ya sword upon that land, and say, aaSword, go through the land; so that bI cut off man and beast from it: 18 cThough these three men were in it, zas I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves. 19 Or if I send da pestilence into that land, and epour out my fury upon it in blood, bto cut off from it man and beast: 20 cThough Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, zas I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; wthey shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness. 21 For thus saith the Lord God; ||How much more when xI send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, fghithe sword, and fhkthe famine, and fglthe noisome beast, and fghmthe pestilence, bto cut off from it man and beast? 22 Yet, behold, ntherein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see otheir way and their doings: and pye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it. 23 And pthey shall comfort you, when ye see otheir ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done qwithout cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord God.

15 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than aa branch which is among the trees of the forest? Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take ba pin of it to hang any vessel thereon? Behold, cit is dcast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work? Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: ehow much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned? Therefore thus saith the Lord God; fAs the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And gI will set my face against them; hthey shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; iand ye shall know that I am the Lord, gwhen I set my face against them. And kI will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord God.

16 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, acause Jerusalem to know her abominations, And say, Thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy dbirth and thy nativity is of the land of eCanaan; fthy father was gan Amorite, and fthy mother han Hittite. And as for thy nativity, iin the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water ||to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. jNone eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to kthe lothing of thy person, iin the day that thou wast born.

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee ||polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast kkin thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast kkin thy blood, Live. lI have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent nornaments: othy
