So Johanan and the other guerrilla leaders and all the people refused to obey the LORD ’s command to stay in Judah.
Johanan and the other leaders took with them all the people who had returned from the nearby countries to which they had fled.
In the crowd were men, women, and children, the king’s daughters, and all those whom Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, had left with Gedaliah. The prophet Jeremiah and Baruch were also included.
The people refused to obey the voice of the LORD and went to Egypt, going as far as the city of Tahpanhes.
