Jeremiah 28:15-16

Context
28:15 Then the prophet Jeremiah told the prophet Hananiah, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord did not send you! You are making these people trust in a lie! 1  28:16 So the Lord says, ‘I will most assuredly remove 2  you from the face of the earth. You will die this very year because you have counseled rebellion against the Lord.’” 3 

1 tn Or “You are giving these people false assurances.”

2 sn There is a play on words here in Hebrew between “did not send you” and “will…remove you.” The two verbs are from the same root word in Hebrew. The first is the simple active and the second is the intensive.

3 sn In giving people false assurances of restoration when the Lord had already told them to submit to Babylon, Hananiah was really counseling rebellion against the Lord. What Hananiah had done was contrary to the law of Deut 13:6 and was punishable by death.
