1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, vaticinare ad prophetas Israel, qui prophetant; et dices prophetantibus de corde suo: Audite verbum Domini.
3 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Vae prophetis insipientibus, qui sequuntur spiritum suum et nihil vident!
4 Quasi vulpes in ruinis prophetae tui, Israel, facti sunt.
5 Non ascendistis confractiones neque opposuistis murum pro domo Israel, ut staretis in proelio in die Domini.
6 Vident vana et divinant mendacium dicentes: "Ait Dominus", cum Dominus non miserit eos; et exspectant, ut confirmet sermonem.
7 Numquid non visionem cassam vidistis et divinationem mendacem locuti estis, et dicitis: "Ait Dominus", cum ego non sim locutus?
8 Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: Quia locuti estis vana et vidistis mendacium, ideo ecce ego ad vos, ait Dominus Deus;
9 et erit manus mea super prophetas, qui vident vana et divinant mendacium: in consilio populi mei non erunt et in scriptura domus Israel non scribentur nec in terram Israel ingredientur, et scietis quia ego Dominus Deus.
10 Eo quod deceperint populum meum dicentes: "Pax", et non est pax; et ipse aedificabat parietem, illi autem liniebant eum calce.
11 Dic ad eos, qui liniunt calce, quod casurus sit; erit enim imber inundans, et dabo lapides grandinis desuper irruentes et ventum procellae dissipantem.
12 Siquidem ecce cecidit paries; numquid non dicetur vobis: "Ubi est litura, quam levistis?".
13 Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: Et erumpere faciam spiritum tempestatum in indignatione mea, et imber inundans in furore meo erit, et lapides grandinis in ira in consumptionem;
14 et destruam parietem, quem levistis calce, et adaequabo eum terrae, et revelabitur fundamentum eius, et cadet, et consumemini in medio eius et scietis quia ego sum Dominus.
15 Et complebo indignationem meam in pariete et in his, qui leverunt eum calce, dicamque vobis: Non est paries, et non sunt qui leverunt eum;
16 prophetae Israel, qui prophetant ad Ierusalem et vident ei visionem pacis, et non est pax, ait Dominus Deus.
17 Et tu, fili hominis, pone faciem tuam contra filias populi tui, quae prophetant de corde suo, et vaticinare super eas
18 et dic: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Vae, quae consuunt fascias pro omni articulo manus et faciunt velamina pro capite omnis staturae ad capiendas animas! Numquid capietis animas de populo meo et vivificabitis animas vobis?
19 Et violastis me ad populum meum pro pugillo hordei et fragmento panis, ut interficeretis animas, quae mori non deberent, et vivificastis animas, quae non deberent vivere, mentientes populo meo credenti mendaciis.
20 Propter hoc haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego ad fascias vestras, quibus vos capitis animas quasi volatilia, et disrumpam eas de brachiis vestris; et dimittam animas, quas vos cepistis, animas quasi volatilia,
21 et disrumpam velamina vestra et liberabo populum meum de manu vestra, neque erunt ultra in manibus vestris ad praedandum, et scietis quia ego Dominus.
22 Pro eo quod maerere fecistis cor iusti mendaciter, quem ego non contristavi, et confortastis manus impii, ut non reverteretur a via sua mala et viveret,
23 propterea vana non videbitis et divinationes non divinabitis amplius, et eruam populum meum de manu vestra, et scietis quia ego Dominus".
King James Version
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD;
3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.
6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.
9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
10 ¶ Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;
16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.
17 ¶ Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,
18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
