Jeremiah 8:8-9

8-9"'How can you say, "We know the score.

We're the proud owners of God's revelation"?

Look where it's gotten you—stuck in illusion.

Your religion experts have taken you for a ride!

Your know-it-alls will be unmasked,

caught and shown up for what they are.

Look at them! They know everything but God's Word.

Do you call that "knowing"?

10-12"'So here's what will happen to the know-it-alls:

I'll make them wifeless and homeless.

Everyone's after the dishonest dollar,

little people and big people alike.

Prophets and priests and everyone in between

twist words and doctor truth.

My dear Daughter—my people—broken, shattered,

and yet they put on Band-Aids,

Saying, "It's not so bad. You'll be just fine."

But things are not "just fine"!

Do you suppose they are embarrassed

over this outrage?

Not really. They have no shame.

They don't even know how to blush.

There's no hope for them. They've hit bottom

and there's no getting up.

As far as I'm concerned,

they're finished.'" God has spoken.
