“Woe to the rebellious children,”
says Yahweh,
“who take counsel, but not from me,
and who make an alliance,
but not by my spirit,
in order to add sin to sin; Bible

“by my spirit.” This verse is saying the people acted on their own, not by revelation from God, which came through the gift of holy spirit that God put on the prophets and some priests and leaders. [For more on the gift of holy spirit, see commentaries on John 7:39 and Eph. 4:4. Also, the book, The Gift of Holy Spirit: The Power to be Like Christ].
