13 The prophets are nothing but[a] wind,
    and the word is not in them.
So may the disaster happen to them!’”[b]

14 Therefore, this is what the Lord God of the Heavenly Armies says:

“Because you people[c] have said this,
    my words in your[d] mouth will become a fire
        and these people the wood.
    The fire[e] will destroy them.

    a nation from far away to attack you,”

“It is an enduring nation,
    an ancient nation,
a nation whose language you don’t know.
    And you won’t understand what they say.
