They never pointed out your sin ..

The visions your prophets had
on your behalf
were delusive,
tinsel things,
they never pointed out
your sin,
to ward off
your exile.
The visions they proffered you
were false,

[Lamentations 2:14]


  1. This is a profound statement in today's culture where we must be "sensitive" and "understanding" -- broken people can't be expected to act whole, after all.

    And yet, Jeremiah still speaks about false healing and false comfort.

    Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Yes, but I bet those prophets got to stay alive. The prophets who dare to tell us the truth about our sin are the ones who end up with heads chopped off (or similar fates...)
