9 For this is a rebellious people, lying sons, Sons who refuse to listen to The law and instruction of the Lord; 10 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]. 11 “Get out of the [true] way, turn aside from the path [of God], Stop bothering us with the Holy One of Israel.”
12 Therefore, the Holy One of Israel says this,
“Because you have refused and rejected this word [of Mine] And have put your trust in oppression and guile, and have relied on them, 13 Therefore this wickedness [this sin, this injustice, this wrongdoing] will be to you Like a crack [in a wall] about to fall, A bulge in a high wall, Whose collapse comes suddenly in an instant, 14 “Whose collapse is like the smashing of a potter’s jar, Crushed so savagely that there cannot be found among its pieces a potsherd [large enough] To take [coals of] fire from a fireplace, Or to scoop water from a cistern.”
