Jeremiah 23:14-16 Expanded Bible (EXB)

14 And I have seen the prophets of Jerusalem
    do ·terrible [shocking] things.
They are guilty of adultery
    and ·live [walk] by lies.
They ·encourage [strengthen] ·evil people to keep on doing evil [L the hands of evildoers],
    so the people don’t ·stop sinning [L turn back from their evil].
All of those people are like the city of Sodom.
    The people of Jerusalem are like the city of Gomorrah to me [C sinful and soon to be punished; Gen. 18–19]!”

15 So this is what the Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts] says about the prophets:

“I will make those prophets eat ·bitter food [L wormwood; C the bitter tasting leaves of a shrub; 9:15]
    and drink poisoned water,
because the prophets of Jerusalem spread ·wickedness [godlessness]
    through the whole country.”

16 This is what the Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts] says:

“Don’t ·pay attention [listen] to what those prophets are ·saying [prophesying] to you.
    They are trying to ·fool [delude] you.
They talk about visions their own ·minds [L hearts] made up,
    not ·about visions from me [L from the mouth of the Lord].
