Jeremiah 28

CHAPTER 28

Hananiah the Prophet

And it came to pass in the fourth year of the reigning of Zedekiah king of Judah, in [3month 1the 2fifth], [2said 3to me 1Hananiah] (son of Azur the false prophet, the one from Gibeon) in the house of the  lord in front of the eyes of the priests and all the people, saying, Thus said the  lord of the forces, the God of Israel, I broke the yoke of the king of Babylon. Yet in two years of days I will return unto this place all the items of the house of the  lord, and Jeconiah, and the resettlement of Judah; for I shall break the yoke of the king of Babylon. And [4said 1Jeremiah 2the 3prophet] to Hananiah before the eyes of the priests, and before the eyes of all of the people standing in the house of the  lord; and Jeremiah said, Truly, thus may the  lord do, the  lord establish your word which you prophesy to return the items of the house of the  lord, and all the resettlement from out of Babylon to this place. Only hear this word which I say into your ears, and into the ears of all the people. The prophets, the ones being prior to me, and prior to you from the eon, and prophesied against [2land 1much], and over [2kingdoms 1great] concerning war, and concerning affliction, and concerning pestilence. The prophet prophesying for peace, in the coming to pass of the word, they shall know the prophet whom [2sent 3to them 1the  lord] in trust. 10 And Hananiah took the collars from the neck of Jeremiah, and he broke them. 11 And Hananiah said before the eyes of all the people, saying, Thus said the  lord, Thus I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon in two years of days from the necks of all the nations. And Jeremiah set out unto his way. 12 And came to pass the word of the  lord to Jeremiah after Hananiah broke the collars from his neck, saying, 13 Proceed and say to Hananiah! saying, Thus said the  lord, [3collars 2wooden 1you broke], but I will make instead of these collars of iron. 14 For thus said the  lord of the forces, the God of Israel, A yoke of iron I have put upon the neck of all the nations to work for the king of Babylon, to serve to him. And indeed the cattle of the land I gave to him. 15 And Jeremiah said to Hananiah, Hear, O Hananiah! [2has not sent 3you 1The  lord], and you [3to rely 1made 2this people] upon wrongdoing. 16 On account of this, Thus said the  lord, Behold, I send you out from the face of the land. In this year you shall die, for [2against 3the 4  lord 1you spoke]. 17 And he died in the [2month 1seventh].
