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.
