The fifth month in the fourth year of Zedekiah’s reign occurred within the months of August and September 593 b.c. Also see note on 1:3. of that same year—the fourth year of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah—Hananiah son of Azzur, a prophet from Gibeon, addressed me publicly in the Temple while all the priests and people listened. He said,
5Jeremiah responded to Hananiah as they stood in front of all the priests and people at the Temple.
10Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke off Jeremiah’s neck and broke it in pieces.
12Soon after this confrontation with Hananiah, the Lord gave this message to Jeremiah:
15Then Jeremiah the prophet said to Hananiah, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord has not sent you, but the people believe your lies.
17Two months later*28:17 Hebrew In the seventh month of that same year. See 28:1 and the note there. the prophet Hananiah died.
