Now, where were we?
The chase is on.
Chapter 41 reads like the police beat section of the local paper.
41:17 mentions Bethlehem. An obvious prophecy about Jesus.
The start of chapter 42 made me laugh!
42:2 And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech thee, our supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for us unto the LORD thy God, even for all this remnant; (for we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes do behold us:)
42:3 That the LORD thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do.
I think the LORD has made his wishes quite clear over the last few hundred years! This is a dense group of people. They decide that Jeremiah is lying to them and they head off to Egypt to escape the invading horde. God will be disappointed in them I'm sure.
Chapter 44 has God/Jeremiah going on and on and on about punishing those that went to Egypt. We get it, they'll die by the sword and b the famine. That'll teach them for burning incense to the wrong god.
