Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes,saying ,
9Takegreatstones in thine hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which is at the entry of Pharaoh'shouse 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 takeNebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throneupon these stones that I have hid ; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.
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 imagesa of Bethshemesh, that is in the land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire.
