[Jeremiah 23] Fierce Fire, Hammer That Shatters
Tuesday, August 22
23"Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away?
24Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD.
25I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, 'I have dreamed, I have dreamed!'
26How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart,
27who think to make my people forget my name by their dreams that they tell one another, even as their fathers forgot my name for Baal?
28Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the LORD.
29Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
30Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who steal my words from one another.
31Behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who use their tongues and declare, 'declares the LORD.'
32Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, declares the LORD, and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them. So they do not profit this people at all, declares the LORD
33"When one of this people, or a prophet or a priest asks you, 'What is the burden of the LORD?' you shall say to them, 'You are the burden, and I will cast you off, declares the LORD.'
34And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, 'The burden of the LORD,' I will punish that man and his household.
35Thus shall you say, every one to his neighbor and every one to his brother, 'What has the LORD answered?' or 'What has the LORD spoken?'
36But 'the burden of the LORD' you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man's own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God.
37Thus you shall say to the prophet, 'What has the LORD answered you?' or 'What has the LORD spoken?'
38But if you say, 'The burden of the LORD,' thus says the LORD, 'Because you have said these words, "The burden of the LORD," when I sent to you, saying, "You shall not say, 'The burden of the LORD,'"
39therefore, behold, I will surely lift you up and cast you away from my presence, you and the city that I gave to you and your fathers.
40And I will bring upon you everlasting reproach and perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.'"
