“Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy out of their own heart, ‘Hear the word of Yahweh!’ Bible other translations

“prophesy against the prophets of Israel.” God’s people are fellow-workers with God, and there are times when God asks prophets to speak to influence things to happen. This is more than God telling Ezekiel that “such and such will happen,” it is apparent that the fact that Ezekiel is prophesying it has an actual effect. See commentary on Hosea 6:5.
