Disaster Because of Idolatry

1 This word came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews living in Lower Egypt1--in Migdol,2 Tahpanhes3 and Memphis4--and in Upper Egypt:5 2 "This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You saw the great disaster6 I brought on Jerusalem and on all the towns of Judah.7 Today they lie deserted and in ruins8 3 because of the evil9 they have done. They aroused my anger10 by burning incense11 to and worshiping other gods12 that neither they nor you nor your ancestors13 ever knew. 4 Again and again14 I sent my servants the prophets,15 who said, 'Do not do this detestable16 thing that I hate!' 5 But they did not listen or pay attention;1718 they did not turn from their wickedness19 or stop burning incense20 to other gods.21 6 Therefore, my fierce anger was poured out;22 it raged against the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem and made them the desolate ruins23 they are today.
