Jeremiah 43:1-7 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 When Jeremiah finished telling the people all the words of the LORD their God--everything the LORD had sent him to tell them1-- 2 Azariah son of Hoshaiah2 and Johanan3 son of Kareah and all the arrogant4 men said to Jeremiah, "You are lying!5 The LORD our God has not sent you to say, 'You must not go to Egypt to settle there.'6 3 But Baruch7 son of Neriah is inciting you against us to hand us over to the Babylonians,a so they may kill us or carry us into exile to Babylon."8 4 So Johanan son of Kareah and all the army officers and all the people9 disobeyed the LORD's command10 to stay in the land of Judah.11 5 Instead, Johanan son of Kareah and all the army officers led away all the remnant of Judah who had come back to live in the land of Judah from all the nations where they had been scattered.12 6 They also led away all the men, women13 and children and the king's daughters whom Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard had left with Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet and Baruch14 son of Neriah. 7 So they entered Egypt15 in disobedience to the LORD and went as far as Tahpanhes.16
