Jeremiah 23:11-17

For both prophet
<05030>
and priest
<03548>
are profane
<02610> (8804)_;
yea, in my house
<01004>
have I found
<04672> (8804)
their wickedness
<07451>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Wherefore their way
<01870>
shall be unto them as slippery
<02519>
[ways] in the darkness
<0653>_:
they shall be driven on
<01760> (8735)_,
and fall
<05307> (8804)
therein: for I will bring
<0935> (8686)
evil
<07451>
upon them, [even] the year
<08141>
of their visitation
<06486>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And I have seen
<07200> (8804)
folly
<08604>
in the prophets
<05030>
of Samaria
<08111>_;
they prophesied
<05012> (8694)
in Baal
<01168>_,
and caused my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
to err
<08582> (8686)_.
{folly: or, an absurd thing: Heb. unsavoury}
I have seen
<07200> (8804)
also in the prophets
<05030>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
an horrible thing
<08186>_:
they commit adultery
<05003> (8800)_,
and walk
<01980> (8800)
in lies
<08267>_:
they strengthen
<02388> (8765)
also the hands
<03027>
of evildoers
<07489> (8688)_,
that none
<0376>
doth return
<07725> (8804)
from his wickedness
<07451>_:
they are all of them unto me as Sodom
<05467>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
thereof as Gomorrah
<06017>_.
{an...: or, filthiness}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
concerning the prophets
<05030>_;
Behold, I will feed
<0398> (8688)
them with wormwood
<03939>_,
and make them drink
<08248> (8689)
the water
<04325>
of gall
<07219>_:
for from the prophets
<05030>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
is profaneness
<02613>
gone forth
<03318> (8804)
into all the land
<0776>_.
{profaneness: or, hypocrisy}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
Hearken
<08085> (8799)
not unto the words
<01697>
of the prophets
<05030>
that prophesy
<05012> (8737)
unto you: they make you vain
<01891> (8688)_:
they speak
<01696> (8762)
a vision
<02377>
of their own heart
<03820>_,
[and] not out of the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
They say
<0559> (8802)
still
<0559> (8800)
unto them that despise
<05006> (8764)
me, The LORD
<03068>
hath said
<01696> (8765)_,
Ye shall have peace
<07965>_;
and they say
<0559> (8804)
unto every one that walketh
<01980> (8802)
after the imagination
<08307>
of his own heart
<03820>_,
No evil
<07451>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
upon you. {imagination: or, stubbornness}
