CommentaryJeremiah 27:15 Parallel Commentaries
2 Chronicles 25:16
But the king interrupted him and said, "Since when have I made you the king's counselor? Be quiet now before I have you killed!" So the prophet stopped with this warning: "I know that God has determined to destroy you because you have done this and have refused to accept my counsel."
"From the least to the greatest, their lives are ruled by greed. From prophets to priests, they are all frauds.
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!
As for the people to whom they prophesy--their bodies will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and war. There will be no one left to bury them. Husbands, wives, sons, and daughters--all will be gone. For I will pour out their own wickedness on them.
"I have not sent these prophets, yet they run around claiming to speak for me. I have given them no message, yet they go on prophesying.
"I have heard these prophets say, 'Listen to the dream I had from God last night.' And then they proceed to tell lies in my name.
They are all liars, and their lies will lead to your being driven out of your land. I will drive you out and send you far away to die.
