Jer 6:13 Jer 40:13 Jer 41:11 Jer 40:8 Jer 42:8 Jer 44:12 Acts 8:10
2 the prophet Jeremiah and said, 'Please hear our petition and intercede with Yahweh your God for us and for all this remnant -- and how few of us are left out of many, your own eyes can see-
Jer 36:7 Lev 26:22 1Sam 7:8 1Sam 12:19 Acts 8:24 Isa 1:9 Isa 37:4
3 so that Yahweh your God may show us the way we are to go and what we must do.'
Ps 86:11 Prov 3:6 Ezra 8:21 Jer 6:16 Mic 4:2 Ps 25:4-5 1Kgs 8:36
4 The prophet Jeremiah replied, 'I hear you; I will indeed pray to Yahweh your God as you ask; and whatever answer Yahweh your God gives you, I will tell you, keeping nothing back from you.'
1Sam 3:17-18 1Sam 12:23 Exod 8:29 Acts 20:20 Jer 23:28 Ps 40:10 1Kgs 22:14-16
5 They in their turn said to Jeremiah, 'May Yahweh be a true and faithful witness against us, if we do not follow the instructions that Yahweh your God sends us through you.
Gen 31:50 Judg 11:10 Mal 2:14 Mal 3:5 Mic 1:2 Rev 1:5 Rev 3:14
6 Whether we like it or not, we shall obey the voice of Yahweh our God to whom we are sending you, so that we may prosper by obeying the voice of Yahweh our God.'
Jer 7:23 Deut 5:29 Deut 5:33 Deut 6:2-3 Exod 24:7 Isa 3:10 Josh 24:24
7 Ten days later the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah.
Ps 27:14 Hab 2:3 Isa 28:16
8 He then summoned Johanan son of Kareah and all the military leaders who were with him, and all the people from least to greatest,
Jer 42:1 Jer 40:8 Jer 40:13 Jer 41:11-16 Jer 43:2-5
9 and said, 'Yahweh, God of Israel, to whom you deputed me to present your petition says this,
2Kgs 19:4 2Kgs 19:6 Jer 42:2 2Kgs 19:20-37 2Kgs 22:15-20
10 "If you will only stay in this country, I shall build you and not overthrow you; I shall plant you and not uproot you, for I am sorry about the disaster I have inflicted on you.
Ezek 36:36 Jer 24:6 Jer 31:28 Amos 7:3 Amos 7:6 Deut 32:36 Hos 11:8
11 Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you fear now; do not fear him, Yahweh declares, for I am with you to save you and rescue you from his clutches.
Rom 8:31 2Chr 32:7-8 Isa 43:2 Isa 43:5 Jer 1:19 Jer 41:18 2Tim 4:17
12 I shall take pity on you, so that he pities you and lets you return to your native soil.
Neh 1:11 Ps 106:45-46 Prov 16:7
13 But if you say: We will not stay in this country; if you disobey the voice of Yahweh your God,
Jer 44:16 Exod 5:2 Jer 42:10
14 and say: No, Egypt is where we shall go, where we shall not see war or hear the trumpet-call or go short of food; that is where we want to live;
Jer 4:19 Jer 41:17 Exod 16:3 Isa 31:1 Jer 4:21 Deut 29:19 Exod 17:3
15 in that case, remnant of Judah, listen to Yahweh's word: Yahweh Sabaoth, God of Israel, says this: If you are determined to go to Egypt, and if you do go and settle there,
Deut 17:16 Jer 44:12-14 Jer 42:17 Dan 11:17 Gen 31:21 Luke 9:51
16 the sword you fear will overtake you there in Egypt, and there you will die.
Ezek 11:8 Jer 44:27 Amos 9:1-4 Deut 28:15 Deut 28:22 Deut 28:45 Jer 42:13
17 Yes, all those who are determined to go to Egypt and settle there, will die by sword, famine and plague: not a single one of them will survive or escape the disaster I shall inflict on them.
Jer 42:22 Jer 24:10 Jer 44:28 Jer 44:13-14
18 Yes, Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this: Just as my furious anger was poured out on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so will my fury be poured out on you if you go to Egypt: you will become an object of execration and horror, a curse, a laughing-stock; and you will never see this place again."
Jer 7:20 Jer 18:16 Jer 29:18 Jer 39:1-9 2Chr 36:16-19 Isa 65:15 Jer 22:27
19 Remnant of Judah, Yahweh has told you, "Do not go into Egypt." Understand clearly that today I have given you a solemn warning.
Deut 17:16 Isa 30:1-7 Neh 9:26 Neh 9:29-30 1Thess 4:6 2Chr 24:19 Acts 2:40
20 You were not being sincere when you sent me to Yahweh your God and said, "Intercede for us with Yahweh our God; tell us exactly what Yahweh our God says and we will do it."
Ezek 14:3-4 Ezek 33:31 Gal 6:7 Jas 1:22 Jer 3:10 Jer 17:10 Jer 42:2
21 Today I have told you, but you have not obeyed the voice of Yahweh your God or any part of the message he sent me to give you.
Ezek 2:7 Acts 20:26-27 Zech 7:11-12 Acts 20:20 Deut 11:26-27 Deut 29:19 Ezek 3:17
22 So understand this clearly: you will die by sword, famine and plague in the place where you want to go and settle.'
