Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Jeremiah 28:12-14

With what blessedness doth the Lord make known to his servants in their retirements, the sacred purposes of his will. No doubt though it be not related in this place, the Prophet Jeremiah when he left Hananiah, and went his way, went to spread the whole matter; like another Hezekiah, before the Lord, Isaiah 37:14 . Where shall a poor exercised soul go, but to a throne of grace? Where shall a servant opposed in his message relate the reception he hath met with, but to his Master? Oh! it is most... read more

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 28:10-17

10-17 Hananiah is sentenced to die, and Jeremiah, when he has received direction from God, boldly tells him so; but not before he received that commission. Those have much to answer for, who tell sinners that they shall have peace, though they harden their hearts in contempt of God's word. The servant of God must be gentle to all men. He must give up even his right, and leave the Lord to plead his cause. Every attempt of ungodly men to make vain the purposes of God, will add to their miseries. read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Jeremiah 28:12-17

The Rebuke Given to Hananiah v. 12. Then the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, the prophet, after that Hananiah, the prophet, had broken the yoke from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, that is, within a few weeks or a month later, saying, v. 13. Go and tell Hananiah, Saying, Thus saith the Lord, Thou hast broken the yokes of wood, but thou shall make for them, in their stead, yokes of iron. The result of Hananiah's rash and impertinent action was merely to increase the emphasis which... read more

THE CONFLICT OF JEREMIAH WITH THE FALSE PROPHETS IN THE FOURTH YEAR OF ZEDEKIAHJeremiah 27, 28Jeremiah 27:1-221In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim [Zedekiah], the son of Josiah, king 2of Judah, came this word unto Jeremiah from the Lord saying, Thus saith the 3Lord to me, Make thee bonds and yokes and put them upon thy neck, and send them to the king of Edom and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of... read more

Alexander MacLaren's Expositions of Holy Scripture - Jeremiah 28:13

Jeremiah YOKES OF WOOD AND IRON Jer_28:13 . I suppose that I had better begin by a word of explanation as to the occasion of this saying. One king of Judah had already been carried off to Babylon, and the throne refilled by his brother, a puppet of the conquerors. This shadow of a king, with the bulk of the nation, was eager for revolt. Jeremiah had almost single-handed to stem the tide of the popular wish. He steadfastly preached submission, not so much to Nebuchadnezzar as to God, who had... read more

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - Jeremiah 28:1-17

This and the following chapter have to do with the direct relations between Jeremiah and the false prophets against whom Jeremiah so solemnly warned Zedekiah. In this chapter we have the account of the incident between Hananiah and Jeremiah. In the house of Jehovah Hananiah told Jeremiah that Jehovah had declared that within two full years He would restore the vessels and the people, breaking the yoke of the king of Babylon. Evidently deceived, Jeremiah assented, and yet it is evident that he... read more

Peter Pett

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 28:1-17

SECTION 2 (Jeremiah 26:1 to Jeremiah 45:5 ). Whilst the first twenty five chapters of Jeremiah have mainly been a record of his general prophecies, mostly given during the reigns of Josiah and Jehoiakim, and have been in the first person, this second section of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 26:1 to Jeremiah 45:5) is in the third person, includes a great deal of material about the problems that Jeremiah faced during his ministry and provides information about the opposition that he continually... read more

Arthur Peake

Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 28:1-17

Jeremiah 28. The Prophecy and Fate of Hananiah.— Whilst Jeremiah still wears the symbolic yoke ( Jeremiah 27:2), his testimony concerning it is opposed by another prophet, Hananiah of Gibeon (5 m. NW. of Jerusalem), who declares that the yoke shall be broken, the Temple vessels, the king, and the exiles brought back, within two years ( Jeremiah 28:1-Numbers :). Jeremiah wishes it might be true, but points out the predominant “ pessimism” of prophecy hitherto, which throws the onus of proof on... read more
