Jer 16:14-15 Jer 23:3 Isa 43:18-19 Jer 31:31-34
8 but, "As Yahweh lives who led back and brought home the offspring of the House of Israel from the land of the north and all the countries to which he had driven them, to live on their own soil." '
Amos 9:14-15 Isa 43:5-6 Ezek 34:13 Ezek 36:24 Ezek 37:25 Ezek 39:28 Isa 14:1

Jer 6:13 Zeph 3:4 Ezek 23:39 Jer 32:34 2Chr 36:14 Ezek 8:16 Jer 7:10-11
12 Because of this, their way will prove treacherous going for them; in the darkness where they are driven, there they will fall. For I shall bring disaster on them, when the year for punishing them comes, Yahweh declares.
Jer 13:16 Jer 11:23 Ps 35:6 Prov 4:19 Exod 32:34 Isa 8:22 John 12:35

14 But in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible: adultery, persistent lying, such abetting of the wicked that no one renounces his wickedness. To me they are all like Sodom and its inhabitants are like Gomorrah.
Isa 1:9-10 Jer 29:23 Ezek 22:25 Deut 32:32 Gen 18:20 Jer 14:14 Jer 23:32

Jer 25:32 Jer 30:23 Amos 1:14 Isa 5:25-28 Isa 21:1 Isa 40:24 Isa 66:15-16
20 Yahweh's anger will not withdraw until he has performed, has carried out, what he has in mind. In the final days, you will understand this clearly,

Ps 139:1-10 1Kgs 20:23 Ezek 20:32-35 Jonah 1:3-4 Ps 113:5 1Kgs 20:28

Jer 23:32 Jer 23:28 Jer 29:8 Joel 2:28 1Cor 4:5 Jer 8:6 Num 12:6
26 How long are there to be those among the prophets who prophesy lies and are in fact prophets of their own delusions?
1Tim 4:1-2 Jer 14:14 2Pet 2:13-16 2Thess 2:9-11 2Tim 4:3 Acts 13:10 Hos 8:5

29 Is my word not like fire, Yahweh demands, is it not like a hammer shattering a rock?

30 'So, then, I have a quarrel with the prophets, Yahweh declares, that steal my words from one another.
Deut 18:20 Ezek 13:8 Jer 14:14-15 Ps 34:16 Ezek 13:20 Ezek 15:7 1Pet 3:12
31 I have a quarrel with the prophets, Yahweh declares, who wag their tongues to utter prophecies.
Jer 23:17 2Chr 18:5 2Chr 18:10-12 2Chr 18:19-21 Isa 30:10 Mic 2:11
32 I have a quarrel with the prophets who make prophecies out of lying dreams, Yahweh declares, who recount them, and lead my people astray by their lies and their bragging. I certainly never sent them or commissioned them, and they serve no good purpose for this people, Yahweh declares.
Jer 7:8 Lam 2:14 Zeph 3:4 Ezek 13:7-18 2Cor 1:17 Deut 13:1-18 Deut 18:20

34 'As for the prophet, the priest, or anyone else, who says, "Yahweh's burden", I shall punish that man, and his household too.

35 This is what you must say to one another, among yourselves, "What answer has Yahweh given?" or "What has Yahweh said?"
Heb 8:11 Jer 31:34 Jer 33:3 Jer 42:4
36 But stop using the expression "Yahweh's burden", for what each man says will be his own responsibility. And you twist the words of the living God, of Yahweh Sabaoth, our God.
2Pet 3:16 Isa 3:8 2Kgs 19:4 Jer 10:10 Ps 64:8 Ps 120:3 1Sam 17:26
37 This is the way to speak to a prophet, "What answer has Yahweh given?" or "What has Yahweh said?"
38 But if you say, "Yahweh's burden", then Yahweh says this, "Since you use the expression 'Yahweh's burden', when I have warned you to stop saying, 'Yahweh's burden',
39 believe me, I shall pick you up and fling you from my presence, you and the city I gave to you and to your ancestors.
Jer 23:33 Ezek 8:18 2Thess 1:9 Deut 32:39 Ezek 5:8 Ezek 6:3 Ezek 9:6
40 I shall bring down everlasting shame on you, everlasting and unforgettable disgrace." '
