Jeremiah 46:25

Context

46:25 The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 1  says, “I will punish Amon, the god of Thebes. 2  I will punish Egypt, its gods, and its kings. I will punish Pharaoh and all who trust in him. 3 

1 tn Heb “Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.” For the significance of this title see the note at 2:19.

2 tn Heb “Amon of No.”

sn The Egyptian city called No (נֹא, no’) in Hebrew was Thebes. It is located about 400 miles (666 km) south of modern-day Cairo. It was the capital of Upper or southern Egypt and the center for the worship of the God Amon who became the state god of Egypt. Thebes is perhaps best known today for the magnificent temples at Karnak and Luxor on the east bank of the Nile.

3 tc Heb “Behold I will punish Amon of No and Pharaoh and Egypt and its gods and its kings and Pharaoh and all who trust in him.” There appears to be a copyist slip involving a double writing of וְעַל־פַּרְעֹה (vÿal-paroh). The present translation has followed the suggestion of BHS and deleted the first one since the second is necessary for the syntactical connection, “Pharaoh and all who trust in him.”
