Jeremiah Chapter 28

1And it came to pass in that year, at the start of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur, the prophet, who is from Gibeon, spoke to me in the house of the Lord in the sight of the priests and all the people, and said, 2“This is what the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, has spoken. He said, ‘I have broken the king of Babylon's yoke. 3In another two years' time I will bring back to this place all the equipment of the house of the Lord which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took from this place and took to Babylon. 4And I will bring Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the deportees of Judah who went to Babylon, back to this place, says the Lord, for I will break the king of Babylon's yoke.’ ” 5Then Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Hananiah the prophet in the sight of the priests and in the sight of all the people who were standing in the house of the Lord, 6and Jeremiah the prophet said, “Indeed the Lord will do this – the Lord will fulfil your words which you prophesied – by bringing back the equipment of the house of the Lord and all the deportees from Babylon to this place. 7But do hear this pronouncement which I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. 8As for the prophets who were before me and before you from ancient times, they prophesied to many countries and against great kingdoms, of war and of trouble and of plagues. 9Regarding any prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of the prophet comes about, then the prophet can be acknowledged, in that the Lord truly sent him.” 10Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke beam off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet and broke it. 11And Hananiah spoke in the sight of all the people and said, “This is what the Lord says: ‘In this way I will break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon off the neck of all nations in another two years' time.’ ” And Jeremiah the prophet went his way. 12Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah after Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke beam off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet, and said, 13“Go and speak to Hananiah and say, ‘This is what the Lord says: «You have broken yoke beams of wood, but you will make yoke beams of iron instead of them. 14For this is what the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, says: ‹I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of all these nations, to serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they will serve him, and I have also given him the wild animals.› » ’ ” 15Then Jeremiah the prophet said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen now, Hananiah. The Lord did not send you, and you have persuaded this people to trust a lie, 16which is why this is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to cast you off the face of the earth. This year you will die, for you have spoken deviously concerning the Lord.’ ” 17And Hananiah died in that year in the seventh month.
