The reproof of lying prophets,
Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying: Ezekiel 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying,and say unto them who prophesy out of their own heart, Hear ye the word of Yahweh, Ezekiel 13:3 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Alas for the base prophets,who follow their own spirit, and have seen, nothing. Ezekiel 13:4 As jackals, among ruins, thy prophets, O Israel, have been. Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the breaches, Nor built a wall about the house of Israel,to stand in the battle, in the day of Yahweh. Ezekiel 13:6 They have had, Visions of falsehood, and, Divinations of lies, Who say, Declareth Yahweh, when, Yahweh, hath not sent them,Yet have they waited for a fulfilling of the word. Ezekiel 13:7 Is it not, a Vision of falsehood, ye have seen, and, a Divination of lies, ye have spoken, Since ye are saying, Declareth Yahweh! when, I, have not spoken? Ezekiel 13:8 Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Because ye have spoken falsehood, And have had visions of lies, Therefore, behold me! against you, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh. Ezekiel 13:9 So then my hand shall be against the prophets, who have Visions of falsehood, and, who divine Divinations of liesIn the council of my people, shall they not be found, And, in the register of the house of Israel, shall they not be written, And, upon the so of Israel, shall they not enter,So shall ye know, that, I, am The Lord, Yahweh,
and their untempered morter.
Ezekiel 13:10 Because, yea, even because, they have led astray my people, saying, Prosperity! when there was no, prosperity,and, one man, was building a partition wall, when, there they were! eating it with whitewash. Ezekiel 13:11 Say thou, unto them who are coating with whitewash, It shall fall,There hath come an overflowing rain, And I will make hail-stones fall, And, a tempestuous wind, shall break it down. Ezekiel 13:12 Lo! when the wall hath fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where, is the coating, wherewith ye coated it? Ezekiel 13:13 Therefore, Thus, saith my Lord, Yahweh, So will I break down with a tempestuous wind, in mine indignation,And, an overflowing rain in mine anger, shall there be, With hailstones, in wrath, to make an end; Ezekiel 13:14 And I will pull down the wall which ye have coated with whitewash, And will bring it unto the ground, So shall be discovered, its foundation, Yea it shall fall, And ye shall come to an end in the midst thereof, So shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh. Ezekiel 13:15 Thus will I bring to an end mine indignation against the wall, and against them who were coating it with whitewash, And will say to you, No more, is the wall, And no more, are they who were coating it: Ezekiel 13:16 [to wit] the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying unto Jerusalem, and are seeing, on her behalf, visions of prosperity,when there is no, prosperity, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
Of prophetesses and their pillows.
Ezekiel 13:17 And, thou, Son of man Set thy face against the daughters of thy people, Those who are prophesying out of their own heart,And prophesy thou against them; Ezekiel 13:18 and say, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Alas! for the women, Who sew oracle-cases on all elbows, And prepare wraps upon the head of every stature, to hunt souls,The souls ye hunt, are those of my people, Whereas, your own [souls], ye keep alive. Ezekiel 13:19 Thus have ye profaned me unto my people, for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, Putting to death the souls that should not die, and, Keeping alive the souls that should not live,By your lying to my people, who hearken to lies. Ezekiel 13:20 Therefore, Thus, saith my Lord, Yahweh, Behold me! against your oracle-cases wherewith ye, are hunting the souls, to make them fly, And I will tear them off your arms,And let go the souls of them whose souls ye, are hunting as birds; Ezekiel 13:21 And will tear off your wraps, And deliver my people out of your hand, And they shall be no longer in your hand, to be hunted;So shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh. Ezekiel 13:22 Because of the paining of the heart of the righteous man with falsehood, whom, I, have not pained,And strengthening the hands of the lawless man, that he should not turn from his wicked way, by letting him live. Ezekiel 13:23 Thereforeof falsehood, shall ye have no vision, And, a divination, shall ye not divine any more,So will I deliver my people out of your hand, And ye shall know, that, I, am Yahweh.
