Context Readings

The Unfaithful Prophets

12 Therefore their way will be slippery. They'll be driven out into the darkness, where they'll fall. For I'll bring disaster on them, the year of their judgment," declares the LORD. 13 "Among the prophets of Samaria I saw a disgusting thing, for they prophesied by Baal and led my people Israel astray. 14 Among the prophets of Jerusalem I saw a horrible thing, for they commit adultery and live a lie. They strengthen the hands of those who do evil, so that no one repents of his evil. All of them are like Sodom to me, and her residents like Gomorrah."
