Context
The False Prophets

6Prophesy you not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame. 7O you that are named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walks uprightly? 8Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: you pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war. 9The women of my people have you cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have you taken away my glory for ever. 10Arise you, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction. 11If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy to you of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.
