Jeremiah 5:13-15 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

13 The prophets are only empty wind.[a]
    The word of God is not in them.[b]
    Bad things will happen to them.”

14 The Lord God All-Powerful said these things:
    “The people said I would not punish them.
So, Jeremiah, the words I give you will be like fire,
    and these people will be like wood.
    That fire will burn them up completely.”
15 Family of Israel, this message is from the Lord.
    “I will soon bring a nation from far away to attack you.
It is an old nation;
    it is an ancient nation.
The people of that nation speak a language that you do not know.
    You cannot understand what they say.


  1. Jeremiah 5:13 wind This is a wordplay. The Hebrew word for wind is like the word for spirit.
  2. Jeremiah 5:13 The word … them Literally, “And the ‘He said’ is not in them.”
