Abstract The understanding of biblical prophetic literature has been hindered by a presumed dichotomy between prophecy of salvation and prophecy of judgement. This can be illustrated by Jer 28:8-9. That text has always been interpreted on the basis of this dichotomy, but the result is a forced reading. This article proposes an alternative reading that suits better the text, the inner logic of ch. 28, and the traditions contained in chs. 27-29. The article further argues that the mentioned dichotomy has no base in historical prophecy.
