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!
Only listen to this message I am speaking in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people.
The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, disaster,a and plague against many lands and great kingdoms.
As for the prophet who prophesies peace-only when the word of the prophet comes true will the prophet be recognized as one whom the Lord has truly sent."b
