What does Jeremiah 28:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 28:13

Go and tell Hananiah, saying, thus saith the Lord
Whose name he had abused; whose prophet he had ill treated; and whose prophecies he had contradicted, and the symbols of them had contumeliously used: thou hast broken the yokes of wood:
or, "bonds", or "the thongs" F17; with which the yokes of wood were bound and fastened, as Kimchi interprets it: but thou shall make for them yokes of iron;
not Hananiah, but Jeremiah; who should prophesy of a more severe bondage the nations should be brought into by Nebuchadnezzar, in direct contradiction to Hananiah's prophecy; instead of wooden yokes, they should have iron ones; which should lie heavier, and bear harder upon them, and which could not be broken nor taken off.
