“Son of man, what is this proverb you people have about the land of Israel, which goes:The days keep passing by,and every vision fails?

Therefore say to them: This is what the Lord God says: I will put a stop to this proverb, and they will not use it again in Israel. But say to them: The days draw near, as well as the fulfillment of every vision.

I will turn against that one and make him a sign and a proverb; I will cut him off from among My people. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.

“Look, everyone who uses proverbs will say this proverb about you:Like mother, like daughter.

“What do you mean by using this proverb concerning the land of Israel:The fathers eat sour grapes,and the children’s teeth are set on edge?

As I live”—this is the declaration of the Lord God—“you will no longer use this proverb in Israel.
