Jeremiah 28:3

Jeremiah 28:3

Within two full years
Or, "within two years of days" F15; when they are up to a day. The Targum is,

``at the end of two years;''
what the false prophets before had said would be done in a very little time; this fixes the precise time of doing it; a very short time, in comparison of the seventy years that Jeremiah had spoken of, ( Jeremiah 25:11 Jeremiah 25:12 ) ; 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;
the temple, where he now was; namely, all such vessels as before this time had been taken by him, both in Jehoiakim's reign, and at the captivity of Jeconiah: and carried them to Babylon;
where they still remained, and according to Jeremiah still would; and were so far from being brought back in a short time, that what were left would be carried thither also, ( Jeremiah 27:19-21 ) .
