I did not send [these counterfeit] prophets,
Yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,
Yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in My council,
Then they would have caused My people to hear My words,
Then they would have turned My people from their evil way
And from the evil of their decisions and deeds.
“Am I a God who is at hand,” says the LORD,
“And not a God far away?”
“Can anyone hide himself in secret places
So that I cannot see him?” says the LORD.
“Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD.
