Theodore Drange and Zedekiah's Death

MYTH
Jeremiah prophesied falsely about how Zedekiah would die
Drange in his Argument from the Bible: "4. Jer 34:5 prophesied that Zedekiah will die in peace, but according to 2Ki 25:7 and Jer 52:10-11, that did not happen. Instead, he saw his sons killed, was carried off in chains, blinded, and eventually died in prison." Drange is very misleading here; only the last clause has anything to do with Zedekiah's death! He died neither violently nor in battle, so he indeed died in peace.
