I will take away the remnant1 of Judah who were determined to go to Egypt to settle there. They will all perish in Egypt; they will fall by the sword or die from famine. From the least to the greatest,2 they will die by sword or famine.3 They will become an object of cursing and horror, of condemnation and reproach.413
I will punish5 those who live in Egypt with the sword,6 famine and plague,7 as I punished Jerusalem.
None of the remnant of Judah who have gone to live in Egypt will escape or survive to return to the land of Judah, to which they long to return and live; none will return except a few fugitives."8
