Jeremiah 42:17

Jeremiah 42:17

So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to go
into Egypt to sojourn there
Not all that went into Egypt, but all that were resolutely set upon it; that were obstinately bent to go there, and did go, contrary to the express command of God; for otherwise there were some that were forced to go against their wills, as Jeremiah, Baruch, and no doubt others: they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence;
three of the Lord's sore judgments; some should die by one, and some by another, and some by a third; all should die by one or the other: and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring
upon them;
that is, none of those who wilfully, and of their own accord, went down to Egypt; they all perished there, none could escape the hand of God, or the evil he determined to bring upon them; which is to be understood of the above judgments.
