Bible: Jer 23:27-32

23:27 How long will they go on plotting 1  to make my people forget who I am 2  through the dreams they tell one another? That is just as bad as what their ancestors 3  did when they forgot who I am by worshiping the god Baal. 4  23:28 Let the prophet who has had a dream go ahead and tell his dream. Let the person who has received my message report that message faithfully. What is like straw cannot compare to what is like grain! 5  I, the Lord, affirm it! 6  23:29 My message is like a fire that purges dross! 7  It is like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces! 8  I, the Lord, so affirm it! 9  23:30 So I, the Lord, affirm 10  that I am opposed to those prophets who steal messages from one another that they claim are from me. 11  23:31 I, the Lord, affirm 12  that I am opposed to those prophets who are using their own tongues to declare, ‘The Lord declares.’ 13  23:32 I, the Lord, affirm 14  that I am opposed to those prophets who dream up lies and report them. They are misleading my people with their reckless lies. 15  I did not send them. I did not commission them. They are not helping these people at all. 16  I, the Lord, affirm it! 17
