Thus

says the Lord Yahweh, Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
Ezekiel 13:3

Context

Ezekiel 12 [25.] For I am Yahweh; I will speak, and the word that I speak will be performed. It will be no more deferred: for in your days, rebellious house, will I speak the word, and will perform it, says the Lord Yahweh. Again Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he sees is for many day to come, and he prophesies of times that are far off. Therefore tell them, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: None of my words shall be deferred any more, but the word which I shall speak shall be performed, says the Lord Yahweh.

Ezekiel 13 [1.] Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own heart, Hear Yahweh’s word: Thus says the Lord Yahweh, Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Israel, your prophets have been like foxes in the waste places.

Ezekiel 13 [5.] You have not gone up into the gaps, neither built up the wall for the house of Israel, to stand in the battle in the day of Yahweh. They have seen falsehood and lying divination, who say, Yahweh says; but Yahweh has not sent them: and they have made men to hope that the word would be confirmed. Haven’t you seen a false vision, and haven’t you spoken a lying divination, in that you say, Yahweh says; but I have not spoken? Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because you have spoken falsehood, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, says the Lord Yahweh. My hand shall be against the prophets who see false visions, and who divine lies: they shall not be in the council of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and you shall know that I am the Lord Yahweh.
