Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO JEREMIAH 28\\

Thus chapter relates a false prophecy of Hananiah, who broke off the
yoke from Jeremiah; but in return the people are threatened with an
iron yoke, and he with death; which came to pass. The time, place, and
substance of his prophecy, are in \\#Jer 28:1-4\\; Jeremiah's answer to it,
\\#Jer 28:5-9\\; Hananiah breaks Jeremiah's yoke, and explains the meaning
of it to the people, \\#Jer 28:10,11\\; Jeremiah prophesies that iron
yokes should be given instead of wooden ones, \\#Jer 28:12-14\\; and
foretells the death of the false prophet, \\#Jer 28:15-17\\.
