9 These people are like children who lie and refuse to obey; they refuse to listen to the Lord’s teachings. 10 They tell the seers, “Don’t see any more visions!” They say to the prophets, “Don’t tell us the truth! Say things that will make us feel good; see only good things for us. 11 Stop blocking our path. Get out of our way. Stop telling us about God, the Holy One of Israel.”
12 So this is what the Holy One of Israel says:
“You people have refused to accept this message and have depended on cruelty and lies to help you. 13 You are guilty of these things. So you will be like a high wall with cracks in it that falls suddenly and breaks into small pieces. 14 You will be like a clay jar that breaks, smashed into many pieces. Those pieces will be too small to take coals from the fire or to get water from a well.”
15 This is what the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, says:
“If you come back to me and trust me, you will be saved. If you will be calm and trust me, you will be strong.” But you don’t want to do that.
