The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros,saying ,
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein,
3Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger , in that they went to burn incense , and to serveothergods, whom they knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.4
Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying , Oh, do not this abominablething that I hate .
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto othergods.6
Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth , and was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and desolate, as at this day.
