CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
13:5 Ye - Vain prophets. Gone up - As in a besieged city, whose wall is broken down, a valiant soldier would run up into the breach to repel the enemy; so true prophets partly by prayer, and partly by doctrine, labour to preserve God's people.

If they had stood before me and listened to me, they would have spoken my words, and they would have turned my people from their evil ways and deeds.
"They will throw their money in the streets, tossing it out like worthless trash. Their silver and gold won't save them on that day of the LORD's anger. It will neither satisfy nor feed them, for their greed can only trip them up.
"O people of Israel, these prophets of yours are like jackals digging in the ruins.
