22 “Son of man, what is this proverby you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’?z 23 Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are neara when every vision will be fulfilled.b 24 For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinationsc among the people of Israel. 25 But I the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay.d For in your days, you rebellious people, I will fulfille whatever I say, declares the Sovereign Lord.f’ ”

26 The word of the Lord came to me: 27 “Son of man, the Israelites are saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’g

28 “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.’ ”
