Verse 4

I will bring: This was doubtless grateful news to the people, who looked upon Zedekiah only as Nebuchadnezzar's deputy. Hananiah seems to have been more desirous of popular than regal favour; for this prediction could not be altogether agreeable to Zedekiah. But he was evidently a weak as well as a wicked prince, and very generally despised.

Verse 8

The prophets: As Hosea, Joel, Amos, Isaiah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and others, all of whom had denounced similar evils against a corrupt people.

Verse 17

Hananiah: Isaiah 44:25, Isaiah 44:26, Zechariah 1:6

the seventh month: The prophecy was delivered in the fifth month - Jeremiah 29:1, and Hananiah died in the seventh month; exactly two months after he had delivered his false prophecy, which he declared, in the name of God, would be fulfilled in two years. Here then the true prophet was demonstrated, and the false prophet detected. The death of Hananiah, thus predicted, was God's seal to the words of His prophet, and must have gained his other predictions great credit among the people; though it is evident that it did not induce them to forsake their sins and return to the God of Israel.

Reciprocal: Exodus 9:5 - a set time Numbers 14:37 - died 1 Samuel 28:19 - and to morrow 1 Kings 13:5 - General 1 Kings 22:25 - Behold 2 Chronicles 6:23 - requiting 2 Chronicles 18:24 - Behold Jeremiah 27:15 - ye
