Jeremiah 43:2

Azariah the son of lHoshaiah and mJohanan the son of Kareah and nall the insolent men said to Jeremiah, You are telling a lie. The Lord our God did not send you to say, oDo not go to Egypt to live there,

Jeremiah 42:14–16

14 and saying, No, vwe will go to the land of Egypt, where we shall not see war or whear the sound of the trumpet or xbe hungry for bread, and we will dwell there, 15 then hear the word of the Lord, O remnant of Judah. Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: yIf you set your faces to enter Egypt zand go to live there, 16 then the sword athat you fear shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine of which you are afraid shall follow close after you to Egypt, band there you shall die.
