And the Lord said:
The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it…
And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
… I will set free your hands, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life… for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 13.
The just measure of my hope …
