13 There in the temple of the sun[1] in Egypt he will demolish the sacred pillars and will burn down the temples of the gods of Egypt.' "

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 43:13

Commentary on Jeremiah 43:8-13

(Read Jeremiah 43:8-13)

God can find his people wherever they are. The Spirit of prophecy was not confined to the land of Israel. It is foretold that Nebuchadnezzar should destroy and carry into captivity many of the Egyptians. Thus God makes one wicked man, or wicked nation, a scourge and plague to another. He will punish those who deceive his professing people, or tempt them to rebellion.
