28:1 And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Tzidkiyah melekh Yehudah, in the fourth year, [and] in the fifth (Av) month, [that] Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) Ben Azur ha Navi, which [was] of Gibon (גּבעון), spoke to me in ha bayit ADONAI (יהוה), in the presence of the Kohanim and of all the people, saying,
28:2 Thus speaks ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot, Elohei Yisra'el, saying, I have broken the yoke of melekh Bavel.
28:3 Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of ADONAI (יהוה)'S house, that Nevukadnetztzar (נבוּכדנאצּר) melekh Bavel took away from this place, and carried them to Bavel:
28:4 And I will bring again to this place Yeconyah Ben Yehoyakim melekh Yehudah, with all the captives of Yehudah, that went into Bavel, declares ADONAI (יהוה): for I will break the yoke of melekh Bavel.
28:5 Then ha Navi YirmeYahu said to ha Navi Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) in the presence of the Kohanim, and in the presence of all the people that stood in ha bayit ADONAI (יהוה),
28:6 Even ha Navi YirmeYahu said, Amen: ADONAI (יהוה) do so: ADONAI (יהוה) perform your Devarim which you have prophesied, to bring again the vessels of ADONAI (יהוה)'S house, and all that is carried away captive, from Bavel into this place.
28:7 Nevertheless hear you now this word that I speak in your ears, and in the ears of all the people;
28:8 ha Neviim that have been before me and before you of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.
28:9 ha Navi which prophesies of shalom, when Dvar ha Navi shall come to pass, [then] shall ha Navi be known, that ADONAI (יהוה) has truly sent him.
28:10 Then Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) ha Navi took the yoke from off ha Navi YirmeYahu's neck, and brake it.
28:11 And Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) spoke in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus said ADONAI (יהוה); Even so will I break the yoke of Nevukadnetztzar (נבוּכדנאצּר) melekh Bavel from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And ha Navi YirmeYahu went his way.
28:12 Then Dvar ADONAI (יהוה) came to YirmeYahu [ha Navi], after that Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) ha Navi had broken the yoke from off the neck of ha Navi YirmeYahu, saying,
28:13 Go and tell Chananyahu (חנניהוּ), saying, Thus said ADONAI (יהוה); You have broken the yokes of wood; but you shall make for them yokes of iron.
28:14 For thus said ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot, Elohei Yisra'el; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nevukadnetztzar (נבוּכדנאצּר) melekh Bavel; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.
28:15 Then said ha Navi YirmeYahu to Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) ha Navi, Hear now, Chananyahu (חנניהוּ); ADONAI (יהוה) has not sent you; but you makesthis people to trust in a lie.
28:16 Therefore thus said ADONAI (יהוה);hinei, I will cast you from off the face of the earth: this year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against ADONAI (יהוה).
28:17 So Chananyahu (חנניהוּ) ha Navi died the same year in the seventh (Tishri) month.
