1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the
land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in
the country of Pathros, saying,
2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil
that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and,
behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein,
3 Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to
anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they
knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.
4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and
sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.
5 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their
wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.
6 Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the
cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and
desolate, as at this day.
7 Therefore now thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel;
Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you
man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain;
8 In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning
incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell,
that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach
among all the nations of the earth?
9 Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the
kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness,
and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of
Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?
10 They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor
walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your
11 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will
set my face against you for evil, and to cut off all Judah.
12 And I will take the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into
the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, and fall
in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the sword and by the
famine: they shall die, from the least even unto the greatest, by the sword
and by the famine: and they shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a
curse, and a reproach.
13 For I will punish them that dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished
Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence:
14 So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone into the land of Egypt
to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that they should return into the
land of Judah, to the which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for
none shall return but such as shall escape.
15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other
gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people
that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,
16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we
will not hearken unto thee.
17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth,
to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto
her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the
cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of
victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour
out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been
consumed by the sword and by the famine.
19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink
offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink
offerings unto her, without our men?
20 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and
to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,
21 The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of
Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people
of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind?
22 So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings,
and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your
land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as
at this day.
23 Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the
LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in
his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto
you, as at this day.
24 Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the
word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt:
25 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives
have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We
will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen
of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish
your vows, and surely perform your vows.
26 Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of
Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the LORD, that my name
shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of
Egypt, saying, The Lord GOD liveth.
27 Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good: and all the men
of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by
the famine, until there be an end of them.
28 Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of
Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into
the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, mine,
29 And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I will punish you
in this place, that ye may know that my words shall surely stand against you
30 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra king of Egypt into
the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of them that seek his life; as I
gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon,
his enemy, and that sought his life.
