Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name although I did not send them, and who say, 'Sword and famine shall not come upon this land': by sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed.
In the last of three consecutive verses, God tells Jeremiah what will happen to the false prophets who have spoken falsely in His name: they will be destroyed by the very things that they refused to tell the people, by exactly what they assured the people would not happen to them. Woe to the false prophets! Woe to you if you are a false prophet! We must strive to be truthful and honest messengers of our God, only sharing those things that He gives us to share.
