In that same year, at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fifth month of the fourth year, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur from Gibeon said to me in the temple of the Lord in the presence of the priests and all the people,
"This is what the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: 'I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.
Within two years I will restore to this place all the articles of the Lord's temple that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took from here and transported to Babylon.
And I will restore to this place Jeconiaha son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the exiles from Judahb who went to Babylon'-[this is] the Lord's declaration-'for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.' "
The prophet Jeremiah replied to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests and all the people who were standing in the temple of the Lord.
The prophet Jeremiah said, "Amen! May the Lord do so. May the Lord make the words you have prophesied come true and may He restore the articles of the Lord's temple and all the exiles from Babylon to this place!
