The Prophets That Prophesy

The prophet that hath a dream, let him
tell a dream; and he that hath my word,
let him speak my word faithfully. What
is the chaff to the wheat? saith the
LORD.
Is not my word like as a fire? saith the
LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh
the rock in pieces?
Therefore, behold, I am against the
prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my
words every one from his neighbour.
Behold, I am against the prophets, saith
the LORD, that use their tongues, and
say, He saith.
Behold, I am against them that
prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD,
and do tell them, and cause my people
to err by their lies, and by their lightness;
yet I sent them not, nor commanded
them: therefore they shall not profit this
people at all, saith the LORD.
And when this people, or the prophet, or
a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is
the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then
say unto them, What burden? I will even
forsake you, saith the LORD.
And as for the prophet, and the priest,
and the people, that shall say, The
burden of the LORD, I will even punish
that man and his house.
Thus shall ye say every one to his
neighbour, and every one to his brother,
What hath the LORD answered? and,
What hath the LORD spoken?
And the burden of the LORD shall ye
mention no more: for every man’s word
shall be his burden; for ye have
perverted the words of the living God, of
the LORD of hosts our God.
Thus shalt thou say to the prophet,
What hath the LORD answered thee?
and, What hath the LORD spoken?
But since ye say, The burden of the
LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD;
Because ye say this word, The burden
of the LORD, and I have sent unto you,
saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of
the LORD;
Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly
forget you, and I will forsake you, and
the city that I gave you and your fathers,
and cast you out of my presence:
And I will bring an everlasting reproach
upon you, and a perpetual shame, which
shall not be forgotten.
Jeremiah  23:28-40
