Jeremiah 23:9-14 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

False Prophets of Hope Denounced

Concerning the prophets:

My heart is broken within me,
    all my bones shake;
I am like a drunken man,
    like a man overcome by wine,
because of the Lord
    and because of his holy words.
10 For the land is full of adulterers;
    because of the curse the land mourns,
    and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up.
Their course is evil,
    and their might is not right.
11 “Both prophet and priest are ungodly;
    even in my house I have found their wickedness,
                says the Lord.
12 Therefore their way shall be to them
    like slippery paths in the darkness,
    into which they shall be driven and fall;
for I will bring evil upon them
    in the year of their punishment,
                says the Lord.
13 In the prophets of Samar′ia
    I saw an unsavory thing:
they prophesied by Ba′al
    and led my people Israel astray.
14 But in the prophets of Jerusalem
    I have seen a horrible thing:
they commit adultery and walk in lies;
    they strengthen the hands of evildoers,
    so that no one turns from his wickedness;
all of them have become like Sodom to me,
    and its inhabitants like Gomor′rah.”
