Jeremiah Chapter 23 Verse 20 - 40

Translations: World English BibleBible in Basic EnglishKing James Version

20.) The anger of Yahweh shall not return, until he has executed, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days you shall understand it perfectly.

21.) I sent not these prophets, yet they ran: I didn't speak to them, yet they prophesied.

22.) But if they had stood in my council, then had they caused my people to hear my words, and had turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

23.) Am I a God at hand, says Yahweh, and not a God afar off?

24.) Can any hide himself in secret places so that I shall not see him? says Yahweh. Don't I fill heaven and earth? says Yahweh.

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 shall this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, even the prophets of the deceit of their own heart?

27.) who think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbor, 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 straw to the wheat? says Yahweh.

29.) Isn't my word like fire? says Yahweh; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

30.) Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, says Yahweh, who steal my words everyone from his neighbor.

31.) Behold, I am against the prophets, says Yahweh, who use their tongues, and say, He says.

32.) Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, says Yahweh, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their vain boasting: yet I didn't send them, nor commanded them; neither do they profit this people at all, says Yahweh.

33.) When this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask you, saying, What is the burden of Yahweh? Then you shall tell them, What burden! I will cast you off, says Yahweh.

34.) As for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, who shall say, The burden of Yahweh, I will even punish that man and his house.

35.) You shall say everyone to his neighbor, and everyone to his brother, What has Yahweh answered? and, What has Yahweh spoken?

36.) You shall mention the burden of Yahweh no more: for every man's own word shall be his burden; for you have perverted the words of the living God, of Yahweh of Armies our God.

37.) You shall say to the prophet, What has Yahweh answered you? and, What has Yahweh spoken?

38.) But if you say, The burden of Yahweh; therefore thus says Yahweh: Because you say this word, The burden of Yahweh, and I have sent to you, saying, You shall not say, The burden of Yahweh;

39.) therefore, behold, I will utterly forget you, and I will cast you off, and the city that I gave to you and to your fathers, away from my presence:

40.) and I will bring an everlasting reproach on you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
