Jeremiah 23:14-16 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

14 And in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible.
    They commit adultery, and they walk in lies,[a]
and they make strong the hands of evildoers,
    so that they have not turned back each from his wickedness.
All of them have become to me like Sodom,
    and its inhabitants like Gomorrah.”

15 Therefore[b] thus says Yahweh concerning the prophets,

“Look, I am going to let them eat wormwood
    and I will give them water of poison to drink,
for from the prophets of Jerusalem
    went out ungodliness to all the land.”

16 Thus says Yahweh of hosts,

“You must not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.
    They are deluding you with visions of their mind,[c]
    They do not speak from the mouth of Yahweh.
