Jeremiah, Chapter 42, verse 11-16:
11 Do not fear the king of Babylon, as you do now. Do not fear him—oracle of the LORD—for I am with you to save you, to rescue you from his power. 12I will take pity on you, so that he will have pity on you and let you return to your land. 13But if you keep saying, “We will not stay in this land,” thus disobeying the voice of the LORD, your God, 14and saying, “No, we will go to the land of Egypt, where we will not see war, nor hear the trumpet alarm, nor hunger for bread. There we will live!” 15then listen to the word of the LORD, remnant of Judah: Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: If you are set on going to Egypt and settling down there once you arrive, 16the sword you fear shall overtake you in the land of Egypt; the hunger you dread shall pursue you to Egypt and there you shall die.
