The Unfaithful Prophets

20 The anger of the LORD shall not return until he has executed and until he has performed the thoughts of his heart: in the last of the days ye shall understand it with understanding. 21 I did not send those prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in my secret, they would also have caused my people to hear my words, and they would have caused them to return from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.
