5 Also Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, (A)“Please inquire for the word of the Lord today.”
5 But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel(A) of the Lord.”
30 “Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord,(A)“Who take counsel, but not of Me,And who [a]devise plans, but not of My Spirit,(B)That they may add sin to sin;
30 “Woe(A) to the obstinate children,”(B) declares the Lord,“to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance,(C) but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin;
12 My people ask counsel from their (A)wooden idols,And their [a]staff informs them.For (B)the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray,And they have played the harlot against their God.
12 My people consult a wooden idol,(A) and a diviner’s rod speaks to them.(B)A spirit of prostitution(C) leads them astray;(D) they are unfaithful(E) to their God.
