25 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ 26 How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, 27 who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, (A)as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.

28 “The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream;
And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the Lord.
29 Is not My word like a (B)fire?” says the Lord,
“And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

30 “Therefore behold, (C)I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who steal My words every one from his neighbor. 31 Behold, I am (D)against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who use their tongues and say, ‘He says.’ 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” says the Lord, “and tell them, and cause My people to err by their (E)lies and by (F)their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not (G)profit this people at all,” says the Lord.

While they divine a lie to you,
To bring you on the necks of the wicked, the slain
(B)Whose day has come,
Whose iniquity shall end.
