{Jeremiah 42:19} The LORD 3068 hath said 1696 z8765 concerning x5921 you, O ye remnant 7611 of Judah; 3063 Go 935 z8799 ye not x408 into Egypt: 4714 know y3045 z8799 certainly 3045 z8800 that x3588 I have admonished 5749 z8689 you this day. 3117
God knew, that such was their miserable propensity to idolatry, that they would adopt the idolatrous worship of Egypt. Add to which, their going thither for protection was in effect refusing to submit to the king of Babylon, to whom God had decreed the rule of Judah and the neighbouring kingdoms. "But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way." {Deu 17:16} + "Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: ... For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength [is] to sit still." {Isa 30:1-7} + "Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because [they are] many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD! ... Now the Egyptians [are] men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together." {Isa 31:1-3} + "But he rebelled against him in sending his ambassadors into Egypt, that they might give him horses and much people. Shall he prosper? shall he escape that doeth such [things]? or shall he break the covenant, and be delivered?" {Ezk 17:15}
"But if thou refuse to go forth, this [is] the word that the LORD hath shewed me:" {Jer 38:21} + "Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous [man], that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul." {Ezk 3:21} + "Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I [am] pure from the blood of all [men]. ... For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God." {Act 20:26-27}
admonished you:
Heb. testified against you, "And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware." {Deu 31:21} + "Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear." {2Ch 24:19} + "Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations." {Neh 9:26} + "And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law: yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear. ... Yet many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands." {Neh 9:29-30} + "And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation." {Act 2:40} + "This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind," {Eph 4:17} + "That no [man] go beyond and defraud his brother in [any] matter: because that the Lord [is] the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified." {1Th 4:6} - Cross Reference Bible Search
