In Egypt Jeremiah Warns of Judgment1 But as soon as Jeremiah, whom the Lord their God had sent, had a finished telling all the people all the words of the Lord their God— that is, all these words— 2 Azariah the b son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the arrogant men said to Jeremiah, “You are c telling a lie! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘You are not to enter Egypt to reside there’; 3 but d Baruch the son of Neriah is inciting you against us to give us over into the hand of the Chaldeans, so they will put us to death or exile us to Babylon.” 4 So e Johanan the son of Kareah and all the ▼
▼ Or princescommanders of the forces, and all the people, g did not obey the voice of the Lord to h stay in the land of Judah. 5 But Johanan the son of Kareah and all the ▼
▼ Or princescommanders of the forces took the j entire remnant of Judah who had returned from all the nations to which they had been driven away, in order to reside in the land of Judah— 6 the men, the women, the ▼
▼ Lit infantschildren, the l king’s daughters and m every person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam ▼
▼ Lit the sonand grandson of Shaphan, together with o Jeremiah the prophet and Baruch the son of Neriah— 7 and they entered the land of Egypt (for they did not obey the voice of the Lord) and went in as far as p Tahpanhes. 8 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah in q Tahpanhes, saying, 9 “Take some large stones in your ▼
▼ Lit handhands and hide them in the mortar in the ▼
▼ Or brickworkbrick terrace which is at the entrance of Pharaoh’s ▼
▼ Lit housepalace in Tahpanhes, in the sight of ▼
▼ Lit mensome of the Jews; 10 and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Behold, I am going to send and get v Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon w My servant, and I am going to set his throne right over these stones that I have hidden; and he will spread his x canopy over them. 11 “He will also come and y strike the land of Egypt; those who are meant for death will be given over to death, and those for captivity to captivity, and z those for the sword to the sword. 12 “And ▼
▼ Some ancient versions read He will setI shall set fire to the temples of the ab gods of Egypt, and he will burn them and take them captive. So he will ac wrap himself with the land of Egypt as a shepherd wraps himself with his garment, and he will depart from there safely. 13 “He will also shatter the ▼
▼ Or stone pillarsobelisks of ▼
▼ Heb Beth-shemesh; i.e. the house of the sun-godHeliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt; and the temples of the gods of Egypt he will burn with fire.”’”
