Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:4 - “I have heard you,” replied Jeremiah the prophet. “I will certainly pray to the LORD your God as you have requested; I will tell you everything the LORD says and will keep nothing back from you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:10 - ‘If you stay in this land, I will build you up and not tear you down; I will plant you and not uproot you, for I have relented concerning the disaster I have inflicted on you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:11 - Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you now fear. Do not be afraid of him, declares the LORD, for I am with you and will save you and deliver you from his hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:15 - then hear the word of the LORD, you remnant of Judah. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘If you are determined to go to Egypt and you do go to settle there,

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:16 - then the sword you fear will overtake you there, and the famine you dread will follow you into Egypt, and there you will die.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:17 - Indeed, all who are determined to go to Egypt to settle there will die by the sword, famine and plague; not one of them will survive or escape the disaster I will bring on them.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:18 - This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘As my anger and wrath have been poured out on those who lived in Jerusalem, so will my wrath be poured out on you when you go to Egypt. You will be a curse[fn] and an object of horror, a curse[fn] and an object of reproach; you will never see this place again.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:19 - “Remnant of Judah, the LORD has told you, ‘Do not go to Egypt.’ Be sure of this: I warn you today

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:20 - that you made a fatal mistake when you sent me to the LORD your God and said, ‘Pray to the LORD our God for us; tell us everything he says and we will do it.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:21 - I have told you today, but you still have not obeyed the LORD your God in all he sent me to tell you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 42:22 - So now, be sure of this: You will die by the sword, famine and plague in the place where you want to go to settle.”
