NASB — Jeremiah 43 — KJV

In Egypt Jeremiah Warns of Judgment

1 But as soon as Jeremiah, whom the LORD their God had sent, had afinished telling all the people all the words of the LORD their God—that is, all these words2 Azariah the ason of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the arrogant men said to Jeremiah, “You are btelling a lie! The LORD our God has not sent you to say, ‘You are not to enter Egypt to reside there’; 3 but aBaruch 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 aJohanan the son of Kareah and all the Icommanders of the forces, and all the people, bdid not obey the voice of the LORD to cstay in the land of Judah. 5 But Johanan the son of Kareah and all the Icommanders of the forces took the aentire 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 Judah6 the men, the women, the Ichildren, the aking’s daughters and bevery person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam IIand grandson of Shaphan, together with cJeremiah the prophet and Baruch the son of Neriah7 and they entered the land of Egypt (for they did not obey the voice of the LORD) and went in as far as aTahpanhes.

8 ¶ Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah in aTahpanhes, saying, 9 “Take [some] large stones in your Ihands and hide them in the mortar in the IIbrick [terrace] which is at the entrance of Pharaoh’s IIIpalace in Tahpanhes, in the sight of IVsome [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 aNebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, bMy servant, and I am going to set his throne [right] over these stones that I have hidden; and he will spread his ccanopy over them. 11 He will also come and astrike the land of Egypt; those who are [meant] for death [will be given over] to death, and those for captivity to captivity, and bthose for the sword to the sword. 12 And II shall set fire to the temples of the agods of Egypt, and he will burn them and take them captive. So he will bwrap 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 Iobelisks of IIHeliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt; and the temples of the gods of Egypt he will burn with fire.”’”

Johanan, discrediting Jeremiah's prophecy, carrieth Jeremiah and others into Egypt.

1 ¶ And it came to pass, [that] when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking unto all the people all the words of the LORD their God, for which the LORD their God had sent him to them, [even] all these words, 2 Then spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there: 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to death, and carry us away captives into Babylon. 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Judah. 5 But Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Judah, that were returned from all nations, whither they had been driven, to dwell in the land of Judah; 6 [Even] men, and women, and children, and the king's daughters, and every person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch the son of Neriah. 7 So they came into the land of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: thus came they [even] to Tahpanhes.

Jeremiah prophesieth by a type the conquest of Egypt by the Babylonians.

8 ¶ Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying, 9 Take great stones in thine hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which [is] at the entry of Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of the men of Judah; 10 And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them. 11 And when he cometh, he shall smite the land of Egypt, [and deliver] such [as are] for death to death; and such [as are] for captivity to captivity; and such [as are] for the sword to the sword. 12 And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go forth from thence in peace. 13 He shall break also the images of Bethshemesh, that [is] in the land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire.
