THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Prophecy of Ezechiel (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

14:9 The prophet shall err, etc: He speaks of false prophets, answering out of their own heads and according to their own corrupt inclinations.--Ibid. I have deceived that prophet. . .God Almighty deceives false prophets, partly by withdrawing his light from them; and abandoning them to their own corrupt inclinations, which push them on to prophesy such things as are agreeable to those who consult them: and partly by disappointing them, and causing all thing to happen contrary to what they have said.
