Jeremiah Chapter 28

Jeremiah 28:1

jer 28:1

The fourth year - Perhaps the fourth year of the sabbatical course is here intended. Of Gibeon - it is probable from the place where he lived, which was one of the cities of the priests; that he was a priest.

Jeremiah 28:12

jer 28:12

Then - Some time after.

Jeremiah 28:13

jer 28:13

But - Thou hast further incensed God against them, and provoked him to make their judgment heavier.

Jeremiah 28:17

jer 28:17

Died - Within two months after Jeremiah had thus prophesied; so dangerous a thing it is for ministers to teach people contrary to the revealed will of God.
