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