8 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah in 1Tahpanhes, saying,
9 "Take some large stones in your hands and hide them in the mortar in the brick terrace which is at the entrance of Pharaoh's palace in Tahpanhes, in the sight of some of the Jews;
10 and say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Behold, I am going to send and get 2Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, 3My servant, and I am going to set his throne right over these stones that I have hidden; and he will spread his 4canopy over them.
11 "He will also come and 5strike the land of Egypt; those who are meant for death will be given over to death, and those for captivity to captivity, and 6those for the sword to the sword.
12 "And I shall set fire to the temples of the 7gods of Egypt, and he will burn them and take them captive. So he will 8wrap himself with the land of Egypt as a shepherd wraps himself with his garment, and he will depart from there safely.
13 "He will also shatter the obelisks of Heliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt; and the temples of the gods of Egypt he will burn with fire.""'
