“¶ Then Hananiah the prophet tooke the yoke from off the prophet Ieremiahs necke, and brake it.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. Neuerthelesse, heare thou now this word that I speake in thine eares, and in the eares of all the people. 8. The prophets that haue beene before mee, and before thee of old, prophecied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of warre, and of euill, and of pestilence. 9. The prophet which prophecieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to passe, then shall the prophet be knowen, that the Lord hath truely sent him. 10. ¶ Then Hananiah the prophet tooke the yoke from off the prophet Ieremiahs necke, and brake it. 11. And Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying; Thus saith the Lord, Euen so will I breake the yoke of Nebuchadnezzer king of Babylon from the necke of all nations within the space of two full yeeres: and the Prophet Ieremiah went his way. 12. ¶ Then the word of the Lord came vnto Ieremiah the Prophet (after that Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the necke of the Prophet Ieremiah) saying, 13. Goe, and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Thou hast broken the yokes of wood, but thou shalt make for them yokes of yron.
