WoeH1945 be to the pastorsH7462 that destroyH6 and scatterH6327 the sheepH6629 of my pasture!H4830 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 againstH5921 the pastorsH7462 that feedH7462 my people;H5971 You have scatteredH6327 my flock,H6629 and drivenH5080 them away, and have not visitedH6485 them: behold,H2005 I will visitH6485 on you the evilH7455 of your doings,H4611 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
And I will gatherH6908 the remnantH7611 of my flockH6629 out of allH3605 countriesH776 whereH834 H8033 I have drivenH5080 them, and will bringH7725 them againH7725 to their folds;H5116 and they shall be fruitfulH6509 and increase.H7235
And I will setH6965 up shepherdsH7462 overH5921 them which shall feedH7462 them: and they shall fearH3372 noH3808 more,H5750 norH3808 be dismayed,H2865 neitherH3808 shall they be lacking,H6485 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
Behold,H2009 the daysH3117 come,H935 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that I will raiseH6965 to DavidH1732 a righteousH6662 Branch,H6780 and a KingH4428 shall reignH4427 and prosper,H7919 and shall executeH6213 judgmentH4941 and justiceH6666 in the earth.H776
In his daysH3117 JudahH3063 shall be saved,H3467 and IsraelH3478 shall dwellH7931 safely:H983 and thisH2088 is his nameH8034 wherebyH834 he shall be called,H7121 THE LORDH3068 OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.H6664
Therefore,H3651 behold,H2009 the daysH3117 come,H935 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that they shall noH3808 moreH5750 say,H559 The LORDH3068 lives,H2416 whichH834 broughtH5927 up the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 out of the landH776 of Egypt;H4714
But, The LORDH3068 lives,H2416 whichH834 broughtH5927 up and whichH834 ledH935 the seedH2233 of the houseH1004 of IsraelH3478 out of the northH6828 country,H776 and from allH3605 countriesH776 whereH834 H8033 I had drivenH5080 them; and they shall dwellH3427 in their own land.H127
My heartH3820 withinH7130 me is brokenH7665 because of the prophets;H5030 allH3605 my bonesH6106 shake;H7363 I am like a drunkenH7910 man,H376 and like a manH1397 whom wineH3196 has overcome,H5674 becauseH6440 of the LORD,H3068 and becauseH6440 of the wordsH1697 of his holiness.H6944
For the landH776 is fullH4390 of adulterers;H5003 for becauseH6440 of swearingH423 the landH776 mourns;H56 the pleasantH4999 places of the wildernessH4057 are driedH3001 up, and their courseH4794 is evil,H7451 and their forceH1369 is not right.
For bothH1571 prophetH5030 and priestH3548 are profane;H2610 yes,H1571 in my houseH1004 have I foundH4672 their wickedness,H7451 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
WhyH3651 their wayH1870 shall be to them as slipperyH2519 ways in the darkness:H653 they shall be drivenH1760 on, and fallH5307 therein: for I will bringH935 evilH7451 on them, even the yearH8141 of their visitation,H6486 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
And I have seenH7200 follyH8604 in the prophetsH5030 of Samaria;H8111 they prophesiedH5012 in Baal,H1168 and caused my peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 to err.H8582
I have seenH7200 also in the prophetsH5030 of JerusalemH3389 an horribleH8186 thing: they commitH5003 adultery,H5003 and walkH1980 in lies:H8267 they strengthenH2388 also the handsH3027 of evildoers,H7489 that noneH1115 does returnH7725 from his wickedness;H7451 they are allH3605 of them to me as Sodom,H5467 and the inhabitantsH3427 thereof as Gomorrah.H6017
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 concerningH5921 the prophets;H5030 Behold,H2005 I will feedH398 them with wormwood,H3939 and make them drinkH8248 the waterH4325 of gall:H7219 for from the prophetsH5030 of JerusalemH3389 is profanenessH2613 goneH3318 forthH3318 into allH3605 the land.H776
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 ListenH8085 not to the wordsH1697 of the prophetsH5030 that prophesyH5012 to you: they make you vain:H1891 they speakH1696 a visionH2377 of their own heart,H3820 and not out of the mouthH6310 of the LORD.H3068
They sayH559 still to them that despiseH5006 me, The LORDH3068 has said,H1696 You shall haveH1961 peace;H7965 and they sayH559 to everyH3605 one that walksH1980 after the imaginationH8307 of his own heart,H3820 NoH3808 evilH7451 shall comeH935 on you.
For whoH4310 has stoodH5975 in the counselH5475 of the LORD,H3068 and has perceivedH7200 and heardH8085 his word?H1697 whoH4310 has markedH7181 his word,H1697 and heardH8085 it?
Behold,H2009 a whirlwindH5591 of the LORDH3068 is goneH3318 forthH3318 in fury,H2534 even a grievousH2342 whirlwind:H5591 it shall fallH2342 grievouslyH2342 on the headH7218 of the wicked.H7563
The angerH639 of the LORDH3068 shall not return,H7725 untilH5704 he have executed,H6213 and tillH5704 he have performedH6965 the thoughtsH4209 of his heart:H3820 in the latterH319 daysH3117 you shall considerH995 it perfectly.H998
I have not sentH7971 these prophets,H5030 yet they ran:H7323 I have not spokenH1696 to them, yet they prophesied.H5012
But if they had stoodH5975 in my counsel,H5475 and had caused my peopleH5971 to hearH8085 my words,H1697 then they should have turnedH7725 them from their evilH7451 way,H1870 and from the evilH7455 of their doings.H4611
Am I a GodH430 at hand,H7138 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 and not a GodH430 afarH7350 off?
Can anyH376 hideH5641 himself in secretH4565 places that I shall not seeH7200 him? saidH5002 the LORD.H3068 Do not I fillH4390 heavenH8064 and earth?H776 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
I have heardH8085 whatH853 H834 the prophetsH5030 said,H559 that prophesyH5012 liesH8267 in my name,H8034 saying,H559 I have dreamed,H2492 I have dreamed.H2492
HowH5704 longH5704 shall this be in the heartH3820 of the prophetsH5030 that prophesyH5012 lies?H8267 yes, they are prophetsH5030 of the deceitH8649 of their own heart;H3820
Which thinkH2803 to cause my peopleH5971 to forgetH7911 my nameH8034 by their dreamsH2472 whichH834 they tellH5608 every manH376 to his neighbor,H7453 as their fathersH1 have forgottenH7911 my nameH8034 for Baal.H1168
The prophetH5030 that has a dream,H2472 let him tellH5608 a dream;H2472 and he that has my word,H1697 let him speakH1696 my wordH1697 faithfully.H571 WhatH4100 is the chaffH8401 to the wheat?H1250 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
Is not my wordH1697 likeH3541 as a fire?H784 saidH5002 the LORD;H3068 and like a hammerH6360 that breaksH6327 the rockH5553 in pieces?
Therefore,H3651 behold,H2005 I am againstH5921 the prophets,H5030 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that stealH1589 my wordsH1697 everyH376 oneH376 from his neighbor.H7453
Behold,H2005 I am againstH5921 the prophets,H5030 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that useH3947 their tongues,H3956 and say, He said.H5002
Behold,H2005 I am againstH5921 them that prophesyH5012 falseH8267 dreams,H2472 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 and do tellH5608 them, and cause my peopleH5971 to errH8582 by their lies,H8267 and by their lightness;H6350 yet I sentH7971 them not, norH3808 commandedH6680 them: therefore they shall not profitH3276 thisH2088 peopleH5971 at all, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
And whenH3588 thisH2088 people,H5971 orH176 the prophet,H5030 orH176 a priest,H3548 shall askH7592 you, saying,H559 WhatH4100 is the burdenH4853 of the LORD?H3068 you shall then sayH559 to them, WhatH4100 burden?H4853 I will even forsakeH5203 you, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
And as for the prophet,H5030 and the priest,H3548 and the people,H5971 that shall say,H559 The burdenH4853 of the LORD,H3068 I will even punishH6485 that manH376 and his house.H1004
ThusH3541 shall you sayH559 everyH376 oneH376 to his neighbor,H7453 and everyH376 oneH376 to his brother,H251 WhatH4100 has the LORDH3068 answered?H6030 and, WhatH4100 has the LORDH3068 spoken?H1696
And the burdenH4853 of the LORDH3068 shall you mentionH2142 noH3808 more:H5750 for every man'sH376 wordH1697 shall be his burden;H4853 for you have pervertedH2015 the wordsH1697 of the livingH2416 God,H430 of the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 our God.H430
ThusH3541 shall you sayH559 to the prophet,H5030 WhatH4100 has the LORDH3068 answeredH6030 you? and, WhatH4100 has the LORDH3068 spoken?H1696
But sinceH518 you say,H559 The burdenH4853 of the LORD;H3068 thereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 BecauseH3282 you sayH559 thisH2088 word,H1697 The burdenH4853 of the LORD,H3068 and I have sentH7971 to you, saying,H559 You shall not say,H559 The burdenH4853 of the LORD;H3068
Therefore,H3651 behold,H2005 I, even I, will utterly forgetH5382 you, and I will forsakeH5203 you, and the cityH5892 that I gaveH5414 you and your fathers,H1 and cast you out of my presence:H6440
And I will bringH5414 an everlastingH5769 reproachH2781 on you, and a perpetualH5769 shame,H3640 whichH834 shall not be forgotten.H7911
