Now, go, write it on a tablet before them
And inscribe it on a scroll,
So that it may serve in the time to come
As a witness [against them] forevermore.
For this is a rebellious people, lying sons,
Sons who refuse to listen to
The law and instruction of the Lord;
Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions from God”;
And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right!
Speak to us pleasant things and smooth words,
Prophesy [deceitful] illusions [that we will enjoy].
New International Version
8 Go now, write it on a tablet(A) for them,
inscribe it on a scroll,(B)
that for the days to come
it may be an everlasting witness.(C)
9 For these are rebellious(D) people, deceitful(E) children,
children unwilling to listen to the Lord’s instruction.(F)
10 They say to the seers,(G)
“See no more visions(H)!”
and to the prophets,
“Give us no more visions of what is right!
Tell us pleasant things,(I)
