Yahweh predicts the death of Hananiah (Jer 28:16-28:16)

“Therefore thus says Yahweh.

‘I going to send you

Off the face of the earth.

Within this year

You will be dead.

Because you have spoken

Rebellion

Against Yahweh.’”

Yahweh was clear. He told Hananiah that he was going to remove him from the face of the earth during the next year. Hananiah was going to die, because he had spoken about rebelling against Yahweh, a very serious crime.
