21 m“I did not send the prophets,
yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,
yet they prophesied.
15 I have not sent them, declares the Lord, but vthey are prophesying falsely in my name, with the result that I will drive you out and you will perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying to you.”
20 nBut the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’
A Tree and Its Fruit
15 j“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are kravenous wolves.
22 nFor false christs and false prophets will arise and operform signs and wonders, pto lead astray, if possible, qthe elect.
