Moreover Jeremiahsaid unto all the people, and to all the women,Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt:25
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,saying ; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand,saying , We will surelyperform our vows that we have vowed , to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surelyaccomplish your vows, and surelyperform your vows.26
Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my greatname,saith the LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt,saying , The LordGODliveth.27
Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good: and all the men of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them.
Yet a smallnumber that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand , mine, or theirs. a29
And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may know that my words shall surelystand against you for evil:30
Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will givePharaohhophraking of Egypt into the hand of his enemies , and into the hand of them that seek his life; as I gaveZedekiahking of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzarking of Babylon, his enemy , and that sought his life.
