Jeremiah 23:10-12 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

10 The land is filled with adulterers.
The land mourns because of the curse.
    Pastures in the wilderness have dried up.
        The people are evil,
            and they use their strength to do the wrong things.
11 The prophets and priests are godless.
    Even in my temple I’ve found them doing evil,” declares the Lord.
12 “That is why their own way will become
    like slippery paths in the dark.
They will be chased away, and they will fall down in the dark.
    I will bring disaster on them.
        It is time for them to be punished,” declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 23:10-12 New International Version (NIV)

10 The land is full of adulterers;
    because of the curse[a] the land lies parched
    and the pastures in the wilderness are withered.
The prophets follow an evil course
    and use their power unjustly.

11 “Both prophet and priest are godless;
    even in my temple I find their wickedness,”
declares the Lord.
12 “Therefore their path will become slippery;
    they will be banished to darkness
    and there they will fall.
I will bring disaster on them
    in the year they are punished,
declares the Lord.
