18For who has stood in the council of the Lord
so as to see and to hear his word?
Who has given heed to his word so as to proclaim it?19Look, the storm of the Lord!
Wrath has gone forth,
a whirling tempest;
it will burst upon the head of the wicked.20The anger of the Lord will not turn back
until he has executed and accomplished
the intents of his mind.
In the latter days you will understand it clearly.
21I did not send the prophets,
yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,
yet they prophesied.22But if they had stood in my council,
then they would have proclaimed my words to my people,
and they would have turned them from their evil way,
and from the evil of their doings.
