Lamentations 2:20; Jeremiah 5:31; Jeremiah 23:21

20  Look, O Lord, and see!

zWith whom have you dealt thus?

aShould women eat the fruit of their womb,

the children of btheir tender care?

Should cpriest and prophet be killed

in the sanctuary of the Lord?


31  xthe prophets prophesy falsely,

and the priests rule at their direction;

ymy people love to have it so,

but what will you do when the end comes?


21  mI did not send the prophets,

yet they ran;

I did not speak to them,

yet they prophesied.
