Asking Questions About the Passage and How the Passage Changes Me.
1. Then some of the leaders of Israel visited me, and while they were sitting with me,
2. this message came to me from the LORD:
3. "Son of man, these leaders have set up idols in their hearts. They have embraced things that will make them fall into sin. Why should I listen to their requests?
4. Tell them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: The people of Israel have set up idols in their hearts and fallen into sin, and then they go to a prophet asking for a message. So I, the LORD, will give them the kind of answer their great idolatry deserves.
5. I will do this to capture the minds and hearts of all my people who have turned from me to worship their detestable idols.'
6. " 'Therefore, tell the people of Israel, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Repent and turn away from your idols, and stop all your detestable sins.
7. I, the LORD, will answer all those, both Israelites and foreigners, who reject me and set up idols in their hearts and so fall into sin, and who then come to a prophet asking for my advice.
8. I will turn against such people and make a terrible example of them, eliminating them from among my people. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
9. "'And if a prophet is deceived into giving a message, it is because I, the LORD, have deceived that prophet. I will lift my fist against such prophets and cut them off from the community of Israel.
10. False prophets and those who seek their guidance will all be punished for their sins.
11. In this way, the people of Israel will learn not to stray from me, polluting themselves with sin. They will be my people, and I will be their God. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!'"
