Bible: Jer 24:8-10

24:8I, the Lord, also solemnly assert: ‘King Zedekiah of Judah, his officials, and the people who remain in Jerusalem 1  or who have gone to live in Egypt are like those bad figs. I consider them to be just like those bad figs that are so bad they cannot be eaten. 2  24:9 I will bring such disaster on them that all the kingdoms of the earth will be horrified. I will make them an object of reproach, a proverbial example of disaster. I will make them an object of ridicule, an example to be used in curses. 3  That is how they will be remembered wherever I banish them. 4  24:10 I will bring war, starvation, and disease 5  on them until they are completely destroyed from the land I gave them and their ancestors.’ 6
