For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: (A)Do not let your prophets and (B)your diviners who are among you deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams that they dream,[a] for (C)it is a lie that they are prophesying to you in my name; (D)I did not send them, declares the Lord.

10 “For thus says the Lord: (E)When seventy years are completed for Babylon, (F)I will visit you, (G)and I will fulfill to you my promise (H)and bring you back to this place. 11 (I)For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[b] and not for evil, (J)to give you a future and a hope. 12 (K)Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, (L)and I will hear you. 13 (M)You will seek me and find me, when you seek me (N)with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord, (O)and I will restore your fortunes and (P)gather you from all the nations and all the places (Q)where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
