Hananiah predicts the end of the exile in two years (Jer 28:11-28:11)

“Hananiah spoke

In the presence

Of all the people.

Saying.

‘Thus says Yahweh.

This how I will break

The yoke

Of King Nebuchadnezzar

Of Babylon

From the neck

Of all the nations

Within two years.’

At this,

The prophet Jeremiah

Went his way.”

Hananiah the prophet boldly proclaimed in the presence of all the people that Yahweh said that he was going to break the yoke of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon from the neck of all the countries during the next 2 years. With that, Jeremiah had no response. He just left.
