Jeremiah Taken to Egypt

1 When Jeremiah finished speaking to all the people all these words of the LORD their God, with which the LORD their God had sent him to them, 2 Azariah the son of 1Hoshaiah and 2Johanan the son of Kareah and 3all the insolent men said to Jeremiah, "You are telling a lie. The LORD our God did not send you to say, 4'Do not go to Egypt to live there,' 3 but 5Baruch the son of Neriah 6has set you against us, 7to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may kill us or take us into exile in Babylon." 4 So 8Johanan the son of Kareah and all 9the commanders of the forces and all the people did not obey the voice of the LORD, to remain in the land of Judah. 5 But Johanan the son of Kareah and all the commanders of the forces took 10all the remnant of Judah who had returned to live in the land of Judah from all the nations to which they had been driven-- 6 11the men, the women, the children, 12the princesses, and every person whom 13Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had left with 14Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan; also Jeremiah the prophet and Baruch the son of Neriah.
