Tyre's funeral song.
The fall of the king of Tyre Your hearts has become proud because of your wealth. Therefore this is what the Lord God says
Because your regard your heart as that of a god. I am about to bring strangers against you, ruthless men from the nations, they will draw their swords against your magnificent wisdom and will defile your splendor,. They will bring you down to the bottomless pit and you will die a violent death in the heart of the sea.
Prophecy against Pharaoh I will strengthen the arms of Babylon's king but Pharaoh's arms will fall. They will know that I am the Lord when I place My sword in the hand of Babylon's king and he wields it against the land of Egypt.
Further prophecy against Egypt Who then are you like in glory and greatness among Eden's trees? You also will be brought down to the underworld to be with the trees of Eden.You will lie among the uncircumcised with those slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his hordes - the declaration of the Lord God.

Egyptian army to return home
Jeremiah arrested, then released When Jeremiah was at the Benjamin Gate, an officer of the guard was there whose name was Irijah son of Shelemiah, son of Hananiah, and he apprehended Jeremiah the prophet saying "You are deserting to the Chaldeans'
That's a lie, Jeremiah replied I am not deserting to the Chaldean's Irijah would not listen to him but apprehended Jeremiah and took him to the officials. The officials were angry at Jeremiah and beat him and placed him in jail in the house of Jonathan the scribe, for it had been made into a prison. So Jeremiah went into a cell in the dungeon and stayed there many days.
Then king Zedekiah later sent for him and received him, and in his house privately asked him, Is there a word from the Lord?
There is Jeremiah responded and he continued, You will be handed over to the king of Babylon.
Jeremiah asked the king ... How have I sinned against you or your servants or these people that you have put me in prison.
Then Jeremiah asked the king not to put him back in prison for he will surely die there so the king gave orders for Jeremiah to be placed in the guards court yard and there he was fed daily.
Butt He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness. Therefore I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me.
