Jeremiah 23:23-29 Common English Bible (CEB)

23 The Lord declares, Am I a God
    who is only nearby and not far off?
24 Can people hide themselves in secret places
    so I might not see them?
        Don’t I fill heaven and earth?

25 I have heard the prophets prophesying lies in my name. They claim, “I’ve had a dream; I’ve had a dream!” 26 How long will deceitful prophecies dominate the minds of the prophets? Those prophets are treacherous. 27 They scheme to make my people forget me by their dreams that people tell each other, just as their ancestors forgot me because of Baal. 28 Let the prophet who has a dream declare it, but let the one who has my word proclaim it faithfully.

What a difference between straw and wheat!
        declares the Lord.
29 Isn’t my word like fire
    and like a hammer that shatters rock?
        declares the Lord.
