New King James Version
8 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord God. 9 “My hand will be (A)against the prophets who envision futility and who (B)divine lies; they shall not be in the assembly of My people, (C)nor be written in the record of the house of Israel, (D)nor shall they enter into the land of Israel. (E)Then you shall know that I am the Lord God.
10 “Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, (F)‘Peace!’ when there is no peace—and one builds a wall, and they (G)plaster[a] it with untempered mortar— 11 say to those who plaster it with untempered mortar, that it will fall. (H)There will be flooding rain, and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall tear it down. 12 Surely, when the wall has fallen, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the mortar with which you plastered it?’ ”
13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in My fury; and there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and great hailstones in fury to consume it. 14 So I will break down the wall you have plastered with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be uncovered; it will fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it. (I)Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
15 “Thus will I accomplish My wrath on the wall and on those who have plastered it with untempered mortar; and I will say to you, ‘The wall is no more, nor those who plastered it, 16 that is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who (J)see visions of peace for her when there is no peace,’ ” says the Lord God.Read full chapter
