Jeremiah taken to Egypt.  Jr.43.1-13

1When Jeremiah had finished reciting to the people all that the LORD their God had sent him to say, 2Azariah son of Hoshaiah and Johanan son of Kareah and their party had the effrontery to say to to say to: or to say: It is being said to Jeremiah, 'You are lying; the LORD our God has not sent you to forbid us to go and make our home in Egypt. 3Baruch son of Neriah has incited you against us in order to put us in the power of the Chaldaeans, so that they may kill us or deport us to Babylon.' 4Johanan son of Kareah and the captains of the armed bands and all the people refused to obey the LORD and stay in Judah. 5So Johanan son of Kareah and the captains collected the remnant of Judah, all who had returned from the countries among which they had been scattered to make their home in Judah— 6men, women and children, including the king's daughters, all the people whom Nebuzaradan captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan, as well as the prophet Jeremiah and Baruch son of Neriah; 7these all went to Egypt and came to Tahpanhes, disobeying the LORD.

8The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah at Tahpanhes: 9Take some large stones and set them in cement in the pavement at the entrance to Pharaoh's palace in Tahpanhes. Let the Judaeans see you do it 10and say to them, These are the words of the LORD of Hosts the God of Israel: I will send for my servant Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he will place his throne on these stones that I have set there, and spread his canopy over them. 11He will then proceed to strike Egypt down, killing those doomed to death, taking captive those who are for captivity, and putting to the sword those who are for the sword. 12He will set fire to the temples of the Egyptian gods, burning the buildings and carrying the gods into captivity. He will scour the land of Egypt as a shepherd scours his clothes to rid them of lice. He will leave Egypt with his purpose achieved. 13He will smash the sacred pillars of Beth-shemesh in Egypt and burn down the temples of the Egyptian gods.
