CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
14:9 The prophet - The false prophet, who speaks all serene, and quiet, in hope of reward. Have deceived - Permitted him to err, or justly left him in his blindness.
1 Kings 22:22
"'How will you do this?' the LORD asked. "And the spirit replied, 'I will go out and inspire all of Ahab's prophets to speak lies.' "'You will succeed,' said the LORD. 'Go ahead and do it.'
1 Kings 22:23
"So you see, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouths of all your prophets. For the LORD has pronounced your doom."
2 Chronicles 18:22
"So you see, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouths of your prophets. For the LORD has pronounced your doom."
Then I said, "O Sovereign LORD, the people have been deceived by what you said, for you promised peace for Jerusalem. But the sword is held at their throats!"
They offer superficial treatments for my people's mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace.
Are they ashamed of their disgusting actions? Not at all--they don't even know how to blush! Therefore, they will lie among the slaughtered. They will be brought down when I punish them," says the LORD.
Therefore, this is what the LORD says: I will punish these lying prophets, for they have spoken in my name even though I never sent them. They say that no war or famine will come, but they themselves will die by war and famine!
