Isa 44:25,26 Zec 1:6
* the seventh month.
The prophecy was delivered in the fifth month, (ver. 1,) and
Hananiah died in the seventh month; exactly two months after
he had delivered his false prophecy, which he declared, in the
name of God, would be fulfilled in two years. Here then the
true prophet was demonstrated, and the false prophet detected.
The death of Hananiah, thus predicted, was God's seal to the
words of His prophet, and must have gained his other
predictions great credit among the people; though it is
evident that it did not induce them to forsake their sins and
return to the God of Israel.
