Bible Commentaries
Jeremiah 28

Dummelow's Commentary on the BibleDummelow on the Bible

Verses 1-17

1-11. Opposition of Hananiah and the false prophets.

2. Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel] a formula of Jeremiah’s, and hence, perhaps, assumed by Hananiah as implying an equal claim to inspiration.

6. Amen: the Lord do so] i.e. would that it might be so.

7-9. Hananiah’s forecasts of peace being in opposition to those of his predecessors, the presumption is against him, and can only be removed by the fulfilment of his predictions (the test laid down in Deuteronomy 18:22), which assuredly is not to take place.

10. See on Jeremiah 27:2.

12-17. Hananiah rebuked and punished.

13. Hananiah’s act by inciting Zedekiah and his people to resistance only makes the servitude which they will have to undergo harsher.

17. The seventh month] cp. Jeremiah 28:1.
