15 Then hear now the word of the Lord, O remnant of Judah! Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: ‘If you (A)wholly[a] set (B)your faces to enter Egypt, and go to dwell there, 16 then it shall be that the (C)sword which you feared shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt; the famine of which you were afraid shall follow close after you there in Egypt; and there you shall die. 17 So shall it be with all the men who set their faces to go to Egypt to dwell there. They shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence. And (D)none of them shall remain or escape from the disaster that I will bring upon them.’
