1 Men da Jeramias var til ende med at forkynde alle de Ord, med hvilke HE EN deres Gud havde sendt ham til dem, alle de nævnte Ord,

2 sagde Azarja, Maasejas Søn, og Johanan, Kareas Søn, og alle de andre overmodige Mænd til Jeremias: "Du lyver! HE EN vor Gud har ikke sendt dig for at sige, at vi ikke skal drage til Ægypten for at bo der som fremmede;

3 nej, Baruk, Nerijas Søn, har ophidset dig imod os, for at vi skal gives i Kaldæernes Hånd, så de dræber os eller fører os bort til Babel."

4 Og Johanan, Karens Søn, alle Hærførerne og alt Folket adlød ikke HE ENs øst om at blive i Judas Land;

5 men Johanan, Kareas Søn, og alle Hærførerne tog hele Judas est, som var vendt tilbage for at bo i Judas Land,

6 Mænd, Kvinder og Børn, Kongedøtrene og enhver, som Livvagts øverste Nebuzaradan havde ladet blive hos Gedalja, Sjafans Søn Ahikams Søn, også Profeten Jeremias og Baruk, Nerijas Søn,

7 og drog til Ægypten; thi de adlød ikke HE ENs øst. Og de kom til Takpankes.

8 Men HE ENs Ord kom til Jeremias i Takpankes således:

9 Tag dig nogle store Sten og grav dem ned i Teglstensgulvets Underlag ved Indgangen til Faraos Hus i Takpankes i de judæiske Mænds Påsyn

10 og sig til dem: Så siger Hærskarers HE E, Israels Gud: Jeg lader min Tjener Kong Nebukadrezar af Babel hente, og han skal rejse sin Trone oven over de Sten, du gravede ned, og brede sit Trontæppe derover.

11 Han skal komme og slå Ægypten; dem, der hører Døden til, skal han overgive til Død, dem der hører Fangenskabet til, til Fangenskab og dem, der hører Sværdet til, til Sværd.

12 Han skal sætte Ild på Ægyptens Gudehuse og afbrænde dem og bortføre Guderne som Fanger, og han skal svøbe Ægypten om sig, som en Hyrde sin Kappe; derpå skal han drage bort derfra i Fred.

13 Han skal nedbryde Stenstøtterne i Bet-Sjemesj og afbrænde Ægyptens Gudehuse.
