Jeremiah 43* The leaders carry the people to Egypt. (1-7) Jeremiahforetells the conquest of Egypt. (8-13)1-7 Only by pride comes contention, both with God and man. Theypreferred their own wisdom to the revealed will of God. Men denythe Scriptures to be the word of God, because they are resolvednot to conform themselves to Scripture rules. When men willpersist in sin, they charge the best actions to bad motives.These Jews deserted their own land, and threw themselves out ofGod's protection. It is the folly of men, that they often ruinthemselves by wrong endeavours to mend their situation. 8-13 God can find his people wherever they are. The Spirit ofprophecy was not confined to the land of Israel. It is foretoldthat Nebuchadnezzar should destroy and carry into captivity manyof the Egyptians. Thus God makes one wicked man, or wickednation, a scourge and plague to another. He will punish thosewho deceive his professing people, or tempt them to rebellion.
