  • Jeremiah 23:9-15 October 21, 2021

    9Concerning the prophets:
    My heart is crushed within me,
    all my bones shake;
    I have become like a drunkard,
    like one overcome by wine,
    because of the LORD
    and because of his holy words.
    10For the land is full of adulterers;
    because of the curse the land mourns,
    and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up.
    Their course has been evil,
    and their might is not right.
    11Both prophet and priest are ungodly;
    even in my house I have found their wickedness,
    says the LORD.

    12Therefore their way shall be to them
    like slippery paths in the darkness,
    into which they shall be driven and fall;
    for I will bring disaster upon them
    in the year of their punishment,
    says the LORD.

    13In the prophets of Samaria
    I saw a disgusting thing:
    they prophesied by Baal
    and led my people Israel astray.
    14But in the prophets of Jerusalem
    I have seen a more shocking thing:
    they commit adultery and walk in lies;
    they strengthen the hands of evildoers,
    so that no one turns from wickedness;
    all of them have become like Sodom to me,
    and its inhabitants like Gomorrah.
    15Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets:
    "I am going to make them eat wormwood,
    and give them poisoned water to drink;
    for from the prophets of Jerusalem
    ungodliness has spread throughout the land."
