Hananiah's false prophecy: Jeremiah's answer, ver. 1 - 9.
Hananiah breaks Jeremiah's yoke: he foretells an iron yoke, and Hananiah's death, ver. 10 - 17.
|28:1||The fourth year - Perhaps the fourth year of the sabbatical course is here intended. Of Gibeon - it is probable from the place where he lived, which was one of the cities of the priests; that he was a priest.|
|28:12||Then - Some time after.|
|28:13||But - Thou hast further incensed God against them, and provoked him to make their judgment heavier.|
|28:17||Died - Within two months after Jeremiah had thus prophesied; so dangerous a thing it is for ministers to teach people contrary to the revealed will of God.|
