Other Translations of Ezekiel 13:10
King James Version
10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, a wall: or, a slight wall and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
English Standard Version
10 Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, 'Peace,' when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash,Or plaster; also verses 11, 14, 15
10 "The fact is that they've lied to my people. They've said, 'No problem; everything's just fine,' when things are not at all fine. When people build a wall, they're right behind them slapping on whitewash.
New King James Version
10 Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, 'Peace!' when there is no peace--and one builds a wall, and they plaster it with untempered mortar--
New Living Translation
10 "This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, 'All is peaceful' when there is no peace at all! It's as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash!
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 13:10
Commentary on Ezekiel 13:10-16
(Read Ezekiel 13:10-16)
One false prophet built the wall, set up the notion that Jerusalem should be victorious, and made himself acceptable by it. Others made the matter yet more plausible and promising; they daubed the wall which the first had built; but they would, ere long, be undeceived when their work was beaten down by the storm of God's just wrath; when the Chaldean army desolated the land. Hopes of peace and happiness, not warranted by the word of God, will cheat men; like a wall well daubed, but ill built.
