Commentary on
Ezekiel 13:1-13

False Prophets Condemned

13:1  And the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying,
13:2  Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of Yehuveh;
13:3  Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
13:4  O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
13:5  Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of Yehuveh.
13:6  They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, Yehuveh saith: and Yehuveh hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
13:7  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, Yehuveh saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
13:8  Therefore thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith Yehuveh Elohim.
13:9  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am Yehuveh Elohim.
13:10  Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
13:11  Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
13:12  Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13:13  Therefore thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
