    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 13:2

    That prophesy out of their own hearts - Who are neither inspired nor sent by Me. They are prophets out of their own hearts.

Such prophets, ministers, preachers, and clergy have been a curse to the Church and to the world for some thousands of years.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 13:2

    13:2 That prophesy - Out of their own deceiving hearts, not from God.
