1 H1945 Woe H7462 be unto the pastors [H8802] H6 that destroy [H8764] H6327 and scatter [H8688] H6629 the sheep H4830 of my pasture H5002 ! saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
2 H559 Therefore thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H7462 against the pastors [H8802] H7462 that feed [H8802] H5971 my people H6327 ; Ye have scattered [H8689] H6629 my flock H5080 , and driven them away [H8686] H6485 , and have not visited [H8804] H6485 them: behold, I will visit [H8802] H7455 upon you the evil H4611 of your doings H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
3 H6908 And I will gather [H8762] H7611 the remnant H6629 of my flock H776 out of all countries H5080 whither I have driven [H8689] H7725 them, and will bring them again [H8689] H5116 to their folds H6509 ; and they shall be fruitful [H8804] H7235 and increase [H8804] .
4 H6965 And I will set up [H8689] H7462 shepherds [H8802] H7462 over them which shall feed [H8804] H3372 them: and they shall fear [H8799] H2865 no more, nor be dismayed [H8735] H6485 , neither shall they be lacking [H8735] H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
5 H3117 Behold, the days H935 come [H8802] H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H6965 , that I will raise [H8689] H1732 unto David H6662 a righteous H6780 Branch H4428 , and a King H4427 shall reign [H8804] H7919 and prosper [H8689] H6213 , and shall execute [H8804] H4941 judgment H6666 and justice H776 in the earth.
6 H3117 In his days H3063 Judah H3467 shall be saved [H8735] H3478 , and Israel H7931 shall dwell [H8799] H983 safely H8034 : and this is his name H7121 whereby he shall be called [H8799] H3072 , THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
7 H3117 Therefore, behold, the days H935 come [H8802] H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H559 , that they shall no more say [H8799] H3068 , The LORD H2416 liveth H5927 , which brought up [H8689] H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt;
8 H3068 But, The LORD H2416 liveth H5927 , which brought up [H8689] H935 and which led [H8689] H2233 the seed H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel H6828 out of the north H776 country H776 , and from all countries H5080 whither I had driven [H8689] H3427 them; and they shall dwell [H8804] H127 in their own land.
9 H3820 Mine heart H7130 within H7665 me is broken [H8738] H5030 because of the prophets H6106 ; all my bones H7363 shake [H8804] H7910 ; I am like a drunken H376 man H1397 , and like a man H3196 whom wine H5674 hath overcome [H8804] H6440 , because H3068 of the LORD H1697 , and because of the words H6944 of his holiness.
10 H776 For the land H4390 is full [H8804] H5003 of adulterers [H8764] H6440 ; for because H423 of swearing H776 the land H56 mourneth [H8804] H4999 ; the pleasant places H4057 of the wilderness H3001 are dried up [H8804] H4794 , and their course H7451 is evil H1369 , and their force is not right.
11 H5030 For both prophet H3548 and priest H2610 are profane [H8804] H1004 ; yea, in my house H4672 have I found [H8804] H7451 their wickedness H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
12 H1870 Wherefore their way H2519 shall be unto them as slippery H653 ways in the darkness H1760 : they shall be driven on [H8735] H5307 , and fall [H8804] H935 therein: for I will bring [H8686] H7451 evil H8141 upon them, even the year H6486 of their visitation H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
13 H7200 And I have seen [H8804] H8604 folly H5030 in the prophets H8111 of Samaria H5012 ; they prophesied [H8694] H1168 in Baal H5971 , and caused my people H3478 Israel H8582 to err [H8686] .
14 H7200 I have seen [H8804] H5030 also in the prophets H3389 of Jerusalem H8186 an horrible thing H5003 : they commit adultery [H8800] H1980 , and walk [H8800] H8267 in lies H2388 : they strengthen [H8765] H3027 also the hands H7489 of evildoers [H8688] H376 , that none H7725 doth return [H8804] H7451 from his wickedness H5467 : they are all of them unto me as Sodom H3427 , and the inhabitants [H8802] H6017 thereof as Gomorrah.
15 H559 Therefore thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H5030 concerning the prophets H398 ; Behold, I will feed [H8688] H3939 them with wormwood H8248 , and make them drink [H8689] H4325 the water H7219 of gall H5030 : for from the prophets H3389 of Jerusalem H2613 is profaneness H3318 gone forth [H8804] H776 into all the land.
16 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H8085 , Hearken [H8799] H1697 not unto the words H5030 of the prophets H5012 that prophesy [H8737] H1891 unto you: they make you vain [H8688] H1696 : they speak [H8762] H2377 a vision H3820 of their own heart H6310 , and not out of the mouth H3068 of the LORD.
17 H559 They say [H8802] H559 still [H8800] H5006 unto them that despise [H8764] H3068 me, The LORD H1696 hath said [H8765] H7965 , Ye shall have peace H559 ; and they say [H8804] H1980 unto every one that walketh [H8802] H8307 after the imagination H3820 of his own heart H7451 , No evil H935 shall come [H8799] upon you.
18 H5975 For who hath stood [H8804] H5475 in the counsel H3068 of the LORD H7200 , and hath perceived [H8799] H8085 and heard [H8799] H1697 his word H7181 ? who hath marked [H8689] H1697 his word H8085 , and heard [H8799] it ?
19 H5591 Behold, a whirlwind H3068 of the LORD H3318 is gone forth [H8804] H2534 in fury H2342 , even a grievous [H8711] H5591 whirlwind H2342 : it shall fall grievously [H8799] H7218 upon the head H7563 of the wicked.
20 H639 The anger H3068 of the LORD H7725 shall not return [H8799] H6213 , until he have executed [H8800] H6965 , and till he have performed [H8687] H4209 the thoughts H3820 of his heart H319 : in the latter H3117 days H995 ye shall consider [H8709] H998 it perfectly.
21 H7971 I have not sent [H8804] H5030 these prophets H7323 , yet they ran [H8804] H1696 : I have not spoken [H8765] H5012 to them, yet they prophesied [H8738] .
22 H5975 But if they had stood [H8804] H5475 in my counsel H5971 , and had caused my people H8085 to hear [H8686] H1697 my words H7725 , then they should have turned [H8686] H7451 them from their evil H1870 way H7455 , and from the evil H4611 of their doings.
23 H430 Am I a God H7138 at hand H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H430 , and not a God H7350 afar off?
24 H376 Can any H5641 hide [H8735] H4565 himself in secret places H7200 that I shall not see [H8799] H5002 him? saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H4392 . Do not I fill H8064 heaven H776 and earth H5002 ? saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
25 H8085 I have heard [H8804] H5030 what the prophets H559 said [H8804] H5012 , that prophesy [H8737] H8267 lies H8034 in my name H559 , saying [H8800] H2492 , I have dreamed [H8804] H2492 , I have dreamed [H8804] .
26 H3426 How long shall this be H3820 in the heart H5030 of the prophets H5012 that prophesy [H8737] H8267 lies H5030 ? yea, they are prophets H8649 of the deceit H3820 of their own heart;
27 H2803 Which think [H8802] H5971 to cause my people H7911 to forget [H8687] H8034 my name H2472 by their dreams H5608 which they tell [H8762] H376 every man H7453 to his neighbour H1 , as their fathers H7911 have forgotten [H8804] H8034 my name H1168 for Baal.
28 H5030 The prophet H2472 that hath a dream H5608 , let him tell [H8762] H2472 a dream H1697 ; and he that hath my word H1696 , let him speak [H8762] H1697 my word H571 faithfully H8401 . What is the chaff H1250 to the wheat H5002 ? saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
29 H1697 Is not my word H3541 like H784 as a fire H5002 ? saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H6360 ; and like a hammer H6327 that breaketh H5553 the rock H6327 in pieces [H8787] ?
30 H5030 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H1589 , that steal [H8764] H1697 my words H376 every one H7453 from his neighbour.
31 H5030 Behold, I am against the prophets H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H3947 , that use [H8802] H3956 their tongues H5001 , and say [H8799] H5002 , He saith [H8803] .
32 H5012 Behold, I am against them that prophesy [H8737] H8267 false H2472 dreams H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H5608 , and do tell [H8762] H5971 them, and cause my people H8582 to err [H8686] H8267 by their lies H6350 , and by their lightness H7971 ; yet I sent [H8804] H6680 them not, nor commanded [H8765] H3276 them: therefore they shall not profit [H8686] H5971 this people H3276 at all [H8687] H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
33 H5971 And when this people H5030 , or the prophet H3548 , or a priest H7592 , shall ask [H8799] H559 thee, saying [H8800] H4853 , What is the burden H3068 of the LORD H559 ? thou shalt then say [H8804] H4853 unto them, What burden H5203 ? I will even forsake [H8804] H5002 you, saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD.
34 H5030 And as for the prophet H3548 , and the priest H5971 , and the people H559 , that shall say [H8799] H4853 , The burden H3068 of the LORD H6485 , I will even punish [H8804] H376 that man H1004 and his house.
35 H559 Thus shall ye say [H8799] H376 every one H7453 to his neighbour H376 , and every one H251 to his brother H3068 , What hath the LORD H6030 answered [H8804] H3068 ? and, What hath the LORD H1696 spoken [H8765] ?
36 H4853 And the burden H3068 of the LORD H2142 shall ye mention [H8799] H376 no more: for every man's H1697 word H4853 shall be his burden H2015 ; for ye have perverted [H8804] H1697 the words H2416 of the living H430 God H3068 , of the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 our God.
37 H559 Thus shalt thou say [H8799] H5030 to the prophet H3068 , What hath the LORD H6030 answered [H8804] H3068 thee? and, What hath the LORD H1696 spoken [H8765] ?
38 H518 But H559 since ye say [H8799] H4853 , The burden H3068 of the LORD H559 ; therefore thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H559 ; Because ye say [H8800] H1697 this word H4853 , The burden H3068 of the LORD H7971 , and I have sent [H8799] H559 unto you, saying [H8800] H559 , Ye shall not say [H8799] H4853 , The burden H3068 of the LORD;
39 H5377 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly [H8800] H5382 forget [H8804] H5203 you, and I will forsake [H8804] H5892 you, and the city H5414 that I gave [H8804] H1 you and your fathers H6440 , and cast you out of my presence:
