Jeremiah 28


28:1 And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the
 reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, [and] in
 the fifth month, [that] Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet,
 who [was] of Gibeon, spoke to me in the house of the LORD, in
 the presence of the priests, and of all the people, saying,
28:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying,
 I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.
28:3 Within two full years will I bring again into this place
 all the vessels of the LORD'S house, that Nebuchadnezzar king
 of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to
 Babylon:
28:4 And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of
 Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that
 went into Babylon, saith the LORD; for I will break the yoke of
 the king of Babylon.
28:5 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah in
 the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the
 people that stood in the house of the LORD,
28:6 Even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the LORD do so: the
 LORD perform thy words which thou hast prophesied, to bring
 again the vessels of the LORD'S house, and all that is carried
 away captive, from Babylon into this place.
28:7 Nevertheless, now hear thou this word that I speak in thy
 ears, and in the ears of all the people:
28:8 The prophets that have been before me and before thee of
 old prophesied both against many countries, and against great
 kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.
28:9 The prophet who prophesieth of peace, when the word of the
 prophet shall come to pass, [then] shall the prophet be known,
 that the LORD hath truly sent him.
28:10 Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from off the
 prophet Jeremiah's neck, and broke it.
28:11 And Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people,
 saying, Thus saith the LORD; Even so will I break the yoke of
 Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all nations
 within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah
 went his way.
28:12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after Hananiah
 the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the
 prophet Jeremiah, saying,
28:13 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Thou
 hast broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them
 yokes of iron.
28:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I
 have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations,
 that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they
 shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field
 also.
28:15 Then said the prophet Jeremiah to Hananiah the prophet,
 Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou
 makest this people to trust in a lie.
28:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee
 from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die,
 because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD.
28:17 So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh
 month.
