Jeremiah 28

The Book of Jeremiah
Chapter 28

Chapter Overview:

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.
28:1The 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.
28:12Then - Some time after.
28:13But - Thou hast further incensed God against them, and provoked him to make their judgment heavier.
28:17Died - 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.
