Book of Jeremiah - Chapter 28

Jeremiah 28:1

It happened the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azzur, the prophet, who was of Gibeon, spoke to me in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,

Jeremiah 28:2

Thus speaks the LORD of Armies, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:3

Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the LORD's house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried to Babylon:

Jeremiah 28:4

and I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, who went to Babylon, says the LORD; for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:5

Then the prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people who stood in the house of the LORD,

Jeremiah 28:6

even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the LORD do so; the LORD perform your words which you have prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the LORD's house, and all them of the captivity, from Babylon to this place.

Jeremiah 28:7

Nevertheless hear you now this word that I speak in your ears, and in the ears of all the people:

Jeremiah 28:8

The prophets who have been before me and before you of old prophesied against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.

Jeremiah 28:9

The prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet shall happen, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD has truly sent him.

Jeremiah 28:10

Then Hananiah the prophet took the bar from off the prophet Jeremiah's neck, and broke it.

Jeremiah 28:11

Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus says the LORD: Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon within two full years from off the neck of all the nations. The prophet Jeremiah went his way.

Jeremiah 28:12

Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that Hananiah the prophet had broken the bar from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 28:13

Go, and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus says the LORD: You have broken the bars of wood; but you have made in their place bars of iron.

Jeremiah 28:14

For thus says the LORD of Armies, the God of Israel: I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the animals of the field also.

Jeremiah 28:15

Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah: the LORD has not sent you; but you make this people to trust in a lie.

Jeremiah 28:16

Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will send you away from off the surface of the earth: this year you shall die, because you have spoken rebellion against the LORD.

Jeremiah 28:17

So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.
