Jer 23:7 "Therefore behold, the days are coming," declares the Lord,"when they will no longer say, 'As the Lord lives, who brought up the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, '
Jer 23:8 but, 'As the Lord lives, who brought up and led back the descendants of the household of Israel from the north land and from all the countries where I had driven them. 'Then they will live on their own soil." False Prophets Denounced
Jer 23:9 As for the prophets: My heart is broken within me, All my bones tremble; I have become like a drunken man, Even like a man overcome with wine, Because of the Lord And because of His holy words.
Jer 23:10 For the land is full of adulterers; For the land mourns because of the curse. The pastures of the wilderness have dried up. Their course also is evil And their might is not right.
Jer 23:11 "For both prophet and priest are polluted; Even in My house I have found their wickedness," declares the Lord.

Jer 23:14 "Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: The committing of adultery and walking in falsehood; And they strengthen the hands of evildoers, So that no one has turned back from his wickedness. All of them have become to Me like Sodom, And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.
Jer 23:15 "Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets, 'Behold, I am going to feed them wormwood And make them drink poisonous water, For from the prophets of Jerusalem Pollution has gone forth into all the land. '"
Jer 23:16 Thus says the Lord of hosts," Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are prophesying to you. They are leading you into futility; They speak a vision of their own imagination, Not from the mouth of the Lord.
Jer 23:17 "They keep saying to those who despise Me, 'The Lord has said," You will have peace"'; And as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, They say, 'Calamity will not come upon you. '
Jer 23:18 "But who has stood in the council of the Lord, That he should see and hear His word? Who has given heed to His word and listened?

Jer 23:21 "I did not send these prophets, But they ran. I did not speak to them, But they prophesied.
Jer 23:22 "But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have announced My words to My people, And would have turned them back from their evil way And from the evil of their deeds.
Jer 23:23 "Am I a God who is near," declares the Lord," And not a God far off?

Jer 23:25 "I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy falsely in My name, saying, 'I had a dream, I had a dream! '
Jer 23:26 How long? Is there anything in the hearts of the prophets who prophesy falsehood, even these prophets of the deception of their own heart,
Jer 23:27 who intend to make My people forget My name by their dreams which they relate to one another, just as their fathers forgot My name because of Baal?
Jer 23:28 The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth. What does straw have in common with grain?" declares the Lord.
Jer 23:29 "Is not My word like fire?" declares the Lord,"and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
Jer 23:30 Therefore behold, I am against the prophets," declares the Lord,"who steal My words from each other.
Jer 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets," declares the Lord,"who use their tongues and declare, 'The Lord declares. '
Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams," declares the Lord,"and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit," declares the Lord.
Jer 23:33 "Now when this people or the prophet or a priest asks you saying, 'What is the oracle of the Lord? 'then you shall say to them, 'What oracle? 'The Lord declares, 'I will abandon you. '
Jer 23:34 Then as for the prophet or the priest or the people who say, 'The oracle of the Lord, 'I will bring punishment upon that man and his household.
Jer 23:35 Thus will each of you say to his neighbor and to his brother, 'What has the Lord answered? 'or, 'What has the Lord spoken? '
Jer 23:36 For you will no longer remember the oracle of the Lord, because every man's own word will become the oracle, and you have perverted the words of the living God, the Lord of hosts, our God.
Jer 23:37 Thus you will say to that prophet, 'What has the Lord answered you? 'and, 'What has the Lord spoken? '
Jer 23:38 For if you say, 'The oracle of the Lord! 'surely thus says the Lord, 'Because you said this word," The oracle of the Lord!" I have also sent to you, saying," You shall not say, 'The oracle of the Lord! '"'
Jer 23:39 Therefore behold, I will surely forget you and cast you away from My presence, along with the city which I gave you and your fathers.
Jer 23:40 I will put an everlasting reproach on you and an everlasting humiliation which will not be forgotten."

Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD. Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams," declares the Lord,"and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit," declares the Lord. Jer 23:32 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πρὸς τοὺς προφήτας τοὺς προφητεύοντας ἐνύπνια ψευδῆ καὶ διηγοῦντο αὐτὰ καὶ ἐπλάνησαν τὸν λαόν μου ἐν τοῖς ψεύδεσιν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς πλάνοις αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγὼ οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς καὶ ὠφέλειαν οὐκ ὠφελήσουσιν τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον
Jer 23:33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD. Jer 23:33 "Now when this people or the prophet or a priest asks you saying, 'What is the oracle of the Lord? 'then you shall say to them, 'What oracle? 'The Lord declares, 'I will abandon you. ' Jer 23:33 καὶ ἐὰν ἐρωτήσωσί σε ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ἢ ἱερεὺς ἢ προφήτης λέγων τί τὸ λῆμμα κυρίου καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς ὑμεῖς ἐστε τὸ λῆμμα καὶ ῥάξω ὑμᾶς λέγει κύριος
Jer 23:34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.

Jer 23:34 καὶ ὁ προφήτης καὶ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ ὁ λαός οἳ ἂν εἴπωσιν λῆμμα κυρίου καὶ ἐκδικήσω τὸν ἄνθρωπον ἐκεῖνον καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ
Jer 23:35 Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken? Jer 23:35 Thus will each of you say to his neighbor and to his brother, 'What has the Lord answered? 'or, 'What has the Lord spoken? ' Jer 23:35 ὅτι οὕτως ἐρεῖτε ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ τί ἀπεκρίθη κύριος καὶ τί ἐλάλησεν κύριος
Jer 23:36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God. Jer 23:36 For you will no longer remember the oracle of the Lord, because every man's own word will become the oracle, and you have perverted the words of the living God, the Lord of hosts, our God. Jer 23:36 καὶ λῆμμα κυρίου μὴ ὀνομάζετε ἔτι ὅτι τὸ λῆμμα τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ ἔσται ὁ λόγος αὐτοῦ
Jer 23:37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken? Jer 23:37 Thus you will say to that prophet, 'What has the Lord answered you? 'and, 'What has the Lord spoken? ' Jer 23:37 καὶ διὰ τί ἐλάλησεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν
Jer 23:38 But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD; Jer 23:38 For if you say, 'The oracle of the Lord! 'surely thus says the Lord, 'Because you said this word," The oracle of the Lord!" I have also sent to you, saying," You shall not say, 'The oracle of the Lord! '"' Jer 23:38 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός ἀνθ᾽ ὧν εἴπατε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον λῆμμα κυρίου καὶ ἀπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς λέγων οὐκ ἐρεῖτε λῆμμα κυρίου
Jer 23:39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence: Jer 23:39 Therefore behold, I will surely forget you and cast you away from My presence, along with the city which I gave you and your fathers. Jer 23:39 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ λαμβάνω καὶ ῥάσσω ὑμᾶς καὶ τὴν πόλιν ἣν ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν
Jer 23:40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten. Jer 23:40 I will put an everlasting reproach on you and an everlasting humiliation which will not be forgotten." Jer 23:40 καὶ δώσω ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς ὀνειδισμὸν αἰώνιον καὶ ἀτιμίαν αἰώνιον ἥτις οὐκ ἐπιλησθήσεται
