Jeremiah 46



Verses 1-28



Concerning Egypt

1. Prophecy about Pharaoh-Necho (Jeremiah 46:1-12)

2. Nebuchadnezzar’s invasion of Egypt (Jeremiah 46:13-26)

3. A message of comfort (Jeremiah 46:27-28)

Jeremiah 46:1-5. This Pharaoh made an attempt to invade the territory of the king of Babylon, but was defeated by Nebuchadrezzar in a battle on the river Euphrates at Carchemish. This prophecy was given about eighteen years before the fall of Jerusalem. All was literally fulfilled.

Jeremiah 46:13-26. This was given after the fall of Jerusalem, when the remnant had gone to Egypt. (See chapters 43 and 44.) This also was fulfilled. Jeremiah 46:26 promises a future restoration of Egypt. Compare this with Isaiah’s prophecy (Isaiah 19:19-25) .

Jeremiah 46:27-28. This blessed message of comfort also awaits its final great fulfillment in the coming days of promised blessing for Jacob’s seed.
