Then the LORDsaidunto me, The prophetsprophesylies in my name: I sentthem not, neitherhave I commandedthem, neitherspakeuntothem: theyprophesyunto you a falsevision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of theirheart.
Thereforethussaith the LORDconcerning the prophetsthatprophesy in my name, and I sentthem not, yet they say, Sword and famineshall not be in thisland; By sword and famineshallthoseprophets be consumed.
And the people to whomtheyprophesyshall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalembecause of the famine and the sword; and theyshallhavenone to burythem, them, theirwives, nor theirsons, nor theirdaughters: for I willpourtheirwickednessuponthem.
If I go forthinto the field, thenbehold the slainwith the sword! and if I enterinto the city, thenbeholdthemthat are sickwithfamine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go aboutinto a landthattheyknow not.
