  • 1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Judeans who lived in the land of Egypt, at Migdol, at Tahpanhes, at Memphis, and in the land of Pathros,
    2 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: You have seen all the disaster that I brought upon Jerusalem and upon all the cities of Judah. Behold, this day they are a desolation, and no one dwells in them,
    3 because of the evil that they committed, provoking me to anger, in that they went to make offerings and serve other gods that they knew not, neither they, nor you, nor your fathers.
    4 Yet I persistently sent to you all my servants the prophets, saying, 'Oh, do not do this abomination that I hate!'
    5 But they did not listen or incline their ear, to turn from their evil and make no offerings to other gods.
    6 Therefore my wrath and my anger were poured out and kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, and they became a waste and a desolation, as at this day.
    7 And now thus says the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel: Why do you commit this great evil against yourselves, to cut off from you man and woman, infant and child, from the midst of Judah, leaving you no remnant?
    8 Why do you provoke me to anger with the works of your hands, making offerings to other gods in the land of Egypt where you have come to live, so that you may be cut off and become a curse and a taunt among all the nations of the earth?
    9 Have you forgotten the evil of your fathers, the evil of the kings of Judah, the evil of their wives, your own evil, and the evil of your wives, which they committed in the land of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?
    10 They have not humbled themselves even to this day, nor have they feared, nor walked in my law and my statutes that I set before you and before your fathers.
    11 "Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will set my face against you for harm, to cut off all Judah.
    12 I will take the remnant of Judah who have set their faces to come to the land of Egypt to live, and they shall all be consumed. In the land of Egypt they shall fall; by the sword and by famine they shall be consumed. From the least to the greatest, they s
    13 I will punish those who dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence,
    14 so that none of the remnant of Judah who have come to live in the land of Egypt shall escape or survive or return to the land of Judah, to which they desire to return to dwell there. For they shall not return, except some fugitives."

    2018-11-19   God says he will thoroughly judge the people of Judah who are worshipping other gods even in the land of Egypt, just as he punished Jerusalem.

이해하기(Understanding)
The Bible describes Judah as proud people who refused to acknowledge God’s messenger when they did not receive the message they wanted to hear. They even accused the prophet of lying to them. Those who remained in Judah were no different than the residents of Judah before the fall of Jerusalem who refused to listen to God’s Word. They rejected God’s will and forced Jeremiah and Baruch to come with them to Egypt (vv. 1-7). In Tahpanhes, Jeremiah heared God’s Word and uniquely prophesied about how Babylon would attack Egypt through symbolic actions. Judah would be forced to recognize that they were wrong to assume they would be safe and not struggle when seeking shelter in Egypt. Again, God shows that He is sovereign over everything (vv. 8-13).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God opposes the proud. The proud, like the people of Judah, will not accept God’s Word if it is not what they want to hear. Is there any pride in your heart that ignores or rejects God’s Word?

What is the lesson for me(us)?
Jeremiah proclaimed God’s Word no matter what his situation. How can you think of where you are as a gift from God and make every effort to share God’s Word in all situations?

기도하기(Praying)
Break the pride deep in my heart and help me to share Your Word even in difficult situations.
