Jeremiah 44:12

Jeremiah 44:12

And I will take the remnant of Judah
Such as remained of that tribe in the land of Judea after the captivity: and not all of them, but such that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn
there:
who were bent upon going thither, notwithstanding all the remonstrances made to them to the contrary; and were gone thither, and were now actually sojourners there: this describes such persons who wilfully, and of their own accord, went thither; and excepts those who were over-persuaded or over-powered to go along with them: and they shall all be consumed, [and] fall in the land of Egypt;
not by natural death, one after another; but by the judgments of God, as follows: they shall [even] be consumed by the sword [and] by the famine;
by the sword of the king of Babylon; and by famine, occasioned by a foreign army and sieges: they shall die; from the least even unto the greatest, by the sword and
by the famine;
which is repeated for the confirmation of it, and to express the universality of the destruction; that it should reach to persons of every age, state and condition, rank and degree, young and old, high and low, rich and poor: and they shall be an execration, [and] an astonishment, and a curse,
and a reproach; (See Gill on Jeremiah 42:18).
