Jeremiah 14:13-16

Lying Prophets

13Then I said: “Ah, Lord  God, behold, the prophets a  say to them, ‘You shall not see the sword, nor shall you have famine, but I will give you assured peace in this place.’” 14And the  Lord said to me: “The b  prophets are prophesying lies in my name. c  I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, d  worthless divination, and e  the deceit of their own minds. 15Therefore thus says the  Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name although f  I did not send them, and who say g  Sword and famine shall not come upon this land’: h  By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed. 16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword, i  with none to bury themthem, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. For I will pour out their evil upon them.
