Jeremiah 44 from Scroll 2Q13 Jeremiah
1 The word that came to
Jeremiah concerning all the Jews who lived in the land of Egypt, who
lived at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Memphis, and in the country
of Pathros, saying, 2 “Yahweh
of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘You have
seen all the evil that I have
brought on Jerusalem, and on all the cities of Judah. Behold, today they are a desolation,
12 I will take the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to live there, and they will all be consumed. They will fall in the land of Egypt. They will be consumed by the sword and by the famine. They will die, from the least even to the greatest, by the sword and by the famine. They will be an object of horror, an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach. 13 For I will punish those who dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence; 14 so that none of the remnant of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt to live there, will escape or be left to return into the land of Judah, to which they have a desire to return to dwell there; for no one will return except those who will escape.’ ”
