The prophets ·speak lies [L prophesy falsely; Deut. 18:14–22], and the priests ·take power [rule] ·into their own hands [or by their hand/control], and my people love it this way. But what will you do when the end comes?
“Unspeakable! Sickening! What’s happened in this country? Prophets preach lies and priests hire on as their assistants. And my people love it. They eat it up! But what will you do when it’s time to pick up the pieces?”
The prophets who claim to speak for Me are nothing more than false prophets, spewing lies and empty predictions. The priests who were to do My bidding have chosen to go their own way, and all the while, My people think nothing of it. They actually prefer it this way, but when the end comes, when My justices arrives, what will you do then?
prophets prophesied leasing, and priests joyed with their hands, and my people loved such things. What therefore shall be done in the last thing thereof? (prophets prophesied lies, and the priests clapped their hands, and my people loved such things. And so what shall be done in its last things, or at the end of it all?)
