New Defender's Study Bible Notes
28:4 bring again to this place Jeconiah. This false prophecy was not fulfilled. Jeconiah died in Babylon (II Kings 25:27-30).
28:10 took the yoke. Jeremiah had placed a yoke on his own neck in obedience to God’s command (Jeremiah 27:2), symbolizing the yoke that would be placed on Judah and other nations by Nebuchadnezzar. Hananiah’s presumption in breaking the yoke resulted in his own death two months later (Jeremiah 28:1,17).
28:15 hath not sent thee. Hananiah was prominent among the many false prophets in Judah in the days of King Zedekiah, prophesying peace and freedom when God had decreed exile and slavery because of sin pervading the nation, especially by its leaders. The test of a true prophet or any other professed spokesman for God is not whether he says what people want to hear, but whether he speaks in accord with God’s Word (Isaiah 8:20).
