10 Precisely because they have misled my people, (A)saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, (B)these prophets smear it with whitewash,[a] 11 say to those who smear it with whitewash that it shall fall! (C)There will be a deluge of rain, and you, O great hailstones, will fall, and a stormy wind break out. 12 And when the wall falls, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the coating with which you smeared it?’ 13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: (D)I will make a stormy wind break out in my wrath, (E)and there shall be a deluge of rain in my anger, and great hailstones in wrath to make a full end. 14 And I will break down the wall that you have smeared with whitewash, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you shall perish in the midst of it, (F)and you shall know that I am the Lord.
