כֹּה־אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאֹות אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר שָׁבַרְתִּי אֶת־עֹל מֶלֶךְ בָּבֶל׃   28:2

Jere. 28:2   “Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, God of Israel, saying, ‘I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.’

בְּעֹוד שְׁנָתַיִם יָמִים אֲנִי מֵשִׁיב אֶל־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה אֶת־כָּל־כְּלֵי בֵּית יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר לָקַח נְבוּכַדְנֶאצַּר   28:3     מֶלֶךְ־בָּבֶל מִן־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה וַיְבִיאֵם בָּבֶל׃

Jere. 28:3   ‘By the end of two years time I am bringing back to this place all the vessels of the house of the Lord that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, took from this place and carried them off in Babylon,

וְאֶת־יְכָנְיָה בֶן־יְהֹויָקִים מֶלֶךְ־יְהוּדָה וְאֶת־כָּל־גָּלוּת יְהוּדָה הַבָּאִים בָּבֶלָה אֲנִי מֵשִׁיב אֶל־הַמָּקֹום   28:4    נְאֻם־יְהוָה כִּי אֶשְׁבֹּר אֶת־עֹל מֶלֶךְ בָּבֶל׃ הַזֶּה

Jere. 28:4   and I am bringing back Jeconiah son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the exiles of Judah carried off to Babylon, to this place,’ declares the Lord, ‘for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’”

וַיֹּאמֶר יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא אֶל־חֲנַנְיָה הַנָּבִיא לְעֵינֵי הַכֹּהֲנִים וּלְעֵינֵי כָל־הָעָם הָעֹמְדִים בְּבֵית יְהוָה׃   28:5

Jere. 28:5   Then Jeremiah, the prophet, spoke to Hananiah, the prophet, in the sight of the priests and in the sight of all the people standing in the house of the Lord,

וַיֹּאמֶר יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא אָמֵן כֵּן יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה יָקֵם יְהוָה אֶת־דְּבָרֶיךָ אֲשֶׁר נִבֵּאתָ לְהָשִׁיב כְּלֵי בֵית־יְהוָה   28:6 וְכָל־הַגֹּולָה מִבָּבֶל אֶל־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה׃

Jere. 28:6   and Jeremiah, the prophet, said “Amen!  So may the Lord do!  May the Lord fulfill your words that you have prophesied, to bring back the vessels of the house of the Lord from Babylon and all the exiles from Babylon to this place.”

אַךְ־שְׁמַע־נָא הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי דֹּבֵר בְּאָזְנֶיךָ וּבְאָזְנֵי כָּל־הָעָם׃   28:7

Jere. 28:7   “However, hear now this word that I am speaking in your ears and in the ears of all the people:

הַנְּבִיאִים אֲשֶׁר הָיוּ לְפָנַי וּלְפָנֶיךָ מִן־הָעֹולָם וַיִּנָּבְאוּ אֶל־אֲרָצֹות רַבֹּות וְעַל־מַמְלָכֹות גְּדֹלֹות   28:8          לְמִלְחָמָה וּלְרָעָה וּלְדָבֶר׃

Jere. 28:8   The prophets who were before me and before you from of old and prophesied concerning many lands and about great kingdoms regarding war and regarding evil and regarding pestilence,

הַנָּבִיא אֲשֶׁר יִנָּבֵא לְשָׁלֹום בְּבֹא דְּבַר הַנָּבִיא יִוָּדַע הַנָּבִיא אֲשֶׁר־שְׁלָחֹו יְהוָה בֶּאֱמֶת׃   28:9

Jere. 28:9   the prophet who would prophesy regarding peace:  By the word of the prophet coming about, the prophet to whom the Lord sent with the truth can be known.”

וַיִּקַּח חֲנַנְיָה הַנָּבִיא אֶת־הַמֹּוטָה מֵעַל צַוַּאר יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא וַיִּשְׁבְּרֵהוּ׃   28:10

Jere. 28:10   Then Hananiah, the prophet, took the bar from the neck of Jeremiah, the prophet and broke it.

וַיֹּאמֶר חֲנַנְיָה לְעֵינֵי כָל־הָעָם לֵאמֹר כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה כָּכָה אֶשְׁבֹּר אֶת־עֹל נְבֻכַדְנֶאצַּר מֶלֶךְ־בָּבֶל   28:11   בְּעֹוד שְׁנָתַיִם יָמִים מֵעַל־צַוַּאר כָּל־הַגֹּויִם וַיֵּלֶךְ יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא לְדַרְכֹּו׃

Jere. 28:11   And Hananiah spoke in the sight of all the people saying, “Thus says the Lord:  ‘Like this I shall break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, by the end of two years time from the neck of all the nations.’”  And Jeremiah, the prophet, went on his way.

וַיְהִי דְבַר־יְהוָה אֶל־יִרְמְיָה אַחֲרֵי שְׁבֹור חֲנַנְיָה הַנָּבִיא אֶת־הַמֹּוטָה מֵעַל צַוַּאר יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא   28:12     

לֵאמֹר׃

Jere. 28:12   Now the word of the Lord occurred to Jeremiah after Hananiah, the prophet, had broken the bar from the neck of Jeremiah, the prophet, saying,

הָלֹוךְ וְאָמַרְתָּ אֶל־חֲנַנְיָה לֵאמֹר כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה מֹוטֹת עֵץ שָׁבָרְתָּ וְעָשִׂיתָ תַחְתֵּיהֶן מֹטֹות בַּרְזֶל׃   28:13

Jere. 28:13   “Go, and you shall speak to Hananiah saying, ‘Thus says the Lord:  ‘You have broken bars of wood but you have made bars of iron in their stead.’

כִּי כֹה־אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאֹות אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל עֹל בַּרְזֶל נָתַתִּי עַל־צַוַּאר כָּל־הַגֹּויִם הָאֵלֶּה לַעֲבֹד   28:14           אֶת־נְבֻכַדְנֶאצַּר מֶלֶךְ־בָּבֶל וַעֲבָדֻהוּ וְגַם אֶת־חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה נָתַתִּי לֹו׃

Jere. 28:14   ‘For thus says the Lord of hosts, God of Israel: ‘I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of all these nations to serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and they shall serve him; and the animals of the field I have given to him as well.’”

וַיֹּאמֶר יִרְמְיָה הַנָּבִיא אֶל־חֲנַנְיָה הַנָּבִיא שְׁמַע־נָא חֲנַנְיָה לֹא־שְׁלָחֲךָ יְהוָה וְאַתָּה הִבְטַחְתָּ אֶת־הָעָם   28:15 הַזֶּה עַל־שָׁקֶר׃

Jere. 28:15   Then Jeremiah, the prophet, said to Hananiah, the prophet, “Now hear, Hananiah, the Lord has not sent you, so you make this people trust in a lie.”

לָכֵן כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה הִנְנִי מְשַׁלֵּחֲךָ מֵעַל פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה הַשָּׁנָה אַתָּה מֵת כִּי־סָרָה דִבַּרְתָּ אֶל־יְהוָה׃   28:16

Jere. 28:16   “Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I am sending you from the face of the earth; this year you are to die for the apostasy you have spoken concerning the Lord.’”

וַיָּמָת חֲנַנְיָה הַנָּבִיא בַּשָּׁנָה הַהִיא בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי׃   28:17

Jere. 28:17   And Hananiah, the prophet, died in that year in the seventh month.
