[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Jeremiah 46, when Egyptian troops were gathered with the Assyrians at Carchemish near the Euphrates River to fight against Nebuchadrezzar, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah against Egypt (1-2).
     The LORD called them to prepare for war, to go, and to fall by the Euphrates (3-6).
     Though they come like a flood and cover the land (as above), they will experience the day of the LORD's vengeance, their wound will be incurable, and they will be put to shame (7-12).
     Moreover, Nebuchadrezzar will come into Egypt, and many will die, including Pharaoh (13-17).
     So the LORD advised the Egyptians to prepare for captivity (18-19). Calamity will come, he said (20-21).
     An innumerable host will invade them, and they will go into captivity in Babylon (22-24).
     Egypt will be punished and delivered into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, but afterward it will be inhabited again (25-26). Israel also will be punished in measure but will be preserved (27-28).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

1). Egypt: Destruction and Recovery for Egypt, and Deliverance for Israel (46:1-28)

     1 The word of the LORD which came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Gentiles;

     2 Against Egypt, against the army of Pharaohnecho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah.

7 Who is this that cometh up as a flood,
whose waters are moved as the rivers?
8 Egypt riseth up like a flood,
and his waters are moved like the rivers;
and he saith,
I will go up,
and will cover the earth;
I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof.
9 Come up,
ye horses;
and rage,
ye chariots;
and let the mighty men come forth;
the Ethiopians and the Libyans,
that handle the shield;
and the Lydians,
that handle and bend the bow.
10 For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts,
a day of vengeance,
that he may avenge him of his adversaries:
and the sword shall devour,
and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood:
for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice
in the north country
by the river Euphrates.
11 Go up into Gilead,
and take balm,
O virgin,
the daughter of Egypt:
in vain shalt thou use many medicines;
for thou shalt not be cured.
12 The nations have heard of thy shame,
and thy cry hath filled the land:
for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty,
and they are fallen both together.

     13 The word that the LORD spake to Jeremiah the prophet, how Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon should come and smite [this] the land of Egypt.

18 As I live,
saith the King,
whose name is the LORD of hosts,
Surely as Tabor is among the mountains,
and as Carmel by the sea,
so shall he come.
19 O thou daughter dwelling in Egypt,
furnish thyself to go into captiviy [preparations of exile make you]:
for Noph shall be waste and desolate
without [with nothing of] an inhabitant.

20 Egypt is like a very fair heifer,
but destruction cometh;
it cometh out of the north.
21 Also her hired men are in the midst of her like fatted bullocks;
for they also are turned back,
and are fled away together:
they did not stand,
because the day of their calamity was come upon them,
and the time of their visitation.

22 The voice thereof shall go like a serpent;
for they shall march with an army,
and come against her with axes,
as hewers of wood.
23 They shall cut down her forest,
saith the LORD,
though it cannot be searched;
because they are more than the grasshoppers,
and are innumerable [and nothing of numbering to them].
24 The daughter of Egypt shall be confounded;
she shall be delivered into the hand of the people of the north.

     25 The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish [visiting with] the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and all them that trust in him: 26 And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek their lives, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of his servants: and afterward [after this] it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, saith the LORD.

27 But fear not thou,
O my servant Jacob,
and be not dismayed,
O Israel:
for, behold, I will save thee from afar off,
and thy seed from the land of their captiviy;
and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease ,
and none shall make him afraid.
28 Fear thou not,
O Jacob my servant,
saith the LORD: I am with thee;
for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee:
but I will not make a full end of thee,
but correct thee in measure;
yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished [acquitting not will I acquit you.
