1 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, a Gibeonite, spoke as follows to Jeremiah in the Temple of Yahweh in the presence of the priests and of all the people,
Jer 27:1 Josh 9:3 Isa 9:15 Jer 23:28 Jer 27:3 Jer 27:12 Jer 28:11
2 'Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this, "I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.
Ezek 13:5-16 Jer 27:2-12 Mic 3:11
3 In exactly two years' time I shall bring back all the vessels of the Temple of Yahweh which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from here and carried off to Babylon.
2Kgs 24:13 2Chr 36:10 Dan 1:2 Gen 47:9 Gen 47:28 Jer 27:16-22 Ps 90:10
4 And I shall also bring back Jeconiah son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah and all the exiles of Judah who have gone to Babylon, Yahweh declares, for I shall break the yoke of the king of Babylon." '
Jer 22:24 Jer 24:1 Jer 28:2 2Kgs 25:27-30 Gen 27:40 Isa 9:4 Jer 2:20
5 The prophet Jeremiah then replied to the prophet Hananiah in front of the priests and all the people present in the Temple of Yahweh.
Jer 28:1 Jer 7:2 Jer 19:14 Jer 26:2
6 'So be it!' the prophet Jeremiah said, 'May Yahweh do so! May he fulfil the words that you have prophesied and bring all the vessels of the Temple of Yahweh and all the exiles back to this place from Babylon.
1Kgs 1:36 Jer 11:5 Ps 41:13 1Chr 16:36 1Cor 14:16 2Cor 1:20 Deut 27:15-26
7 Listen carefully, however, to this word that I am now going to say for you and all the people to hear:
8 From remote times, the prophets who preceded you and me prophesied war, disaster and plague for many countries and for great kingdoms;
1Kgs 17:1 Amos 1:2 1Kgs 14:7-15 1Kgs 21:18-24 1Kgs 22:8 1Sam 2:27-32 1Sam 3:11-14
9 the prophet who prophesies peace can be recognised as one truly sent by Yahweh only when his word comes true.'
Deut 18:22 Jer 6:14 Ezek 13:10-16 Jer 4:10 Jer 8:11 Jer 14:13
10 The prophet Hananiah then snatched the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it.
Jer 27:2 1Kgs 22:11 1Kgs 22:24-25 Jer 28:2 Jer 28:4 Jer 36:23-24 Mal 3:13
11 In front of all the people Hananiah then said, 'Yahweh says this, "This is how, in exactly two years' time, I shall break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and take it off the necks of all the nations." ' At this, the prophet Jeremiah went away.
1Kgs 13:18 1Kgs 22:6 1Kgs 22:11-12 2Chr 18:10 2Chr 18:22-23 Jer 14:14 Jer 23:17
12 After the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke he had snatched off the prophet Jeremiah's neck, the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah,
Jer 1:2 1Chr 17:3 2Kgs 20:4 Dan 9:2 Jer 29:30
13 'Go to Hananiah and tell him this, "Yahweh says this: You have broken the wooden yokes only to make iron yokes to replace them!
Jer 27:15 Lam 2:14 Ps 149:8
14 For Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this: An iron yoke is what I now lay on the necks of all these nations to enslave them to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. (They will be enslaved to him; I have even given him the wild animals.)" '
Deut 28:48 Jer 27:6-7 Dan 2:38 Deut 4:20 Isa 14:4-6 Jer 25:9-26 Jer 27:4
15 The prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah, 'Listen carefully, Hananiah: Yahweh has not sent you; and thanks to you this people is now relying on what is false.
Ezek 13:22 Lam 2:14 Ezek 22:28 1Kgs 22:23 Ezek 13:2-3 Jer 27:15 Jer 28:11
16 And so, Yahweh says this, "I am going to send you off the face of the earth: you will die this year (since you have preached rebellion against Yahweh)." '
Jer 29:32 Gen 7:4 1Kgs 13:34 Deut 6:15 Exod 32:12 Jer 20:6 Acts 13:8-11
17 The prophet Hananiah died the same year, in the seventh month.
Isa 44:25-26 Zech 1:6
