“If people do the same in Egypt as they have done at home, the same punishment will overtake them. One marvels at the perversity of their hearts, to have learned so little from the sack of Jerusalem. But do we learn from the judgments God sends upon us? Do they make us repent, and learn righteousness? (Isaiah 26:9).”
(Rev James Philip, Notes on Jeremiah 44:1-19, Gardenstown Church,  Tuesday 28th August 1956)
