“Son of man, what is this proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying,
‘The days go by,
and every vision fails?’ Bible see other translations

“The days go by.” This is more literally, “The days are prolonged,” but the reference is to how the days pass without the prophecies being fulfilled. Given the context, the reference is the lying prophecies that foretold of good times ahead.
