Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Jeremiah, xlii: 13, 14.)--'But if ye say, We will not dwell in this land, neither obey the voice of the Lord your God, saying, No; but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell.' By words like these Jeremiah was seeking to keep the remnant of Judah from going into Egypt out of fear of the king of Babylon. But the words of the prophet fell on unwilling ears, and in spite of all his efforts they went down into Egypt. But this remnant of Judah found to their cost that Jeremiah was right. The king of Babylon invaded Egypt also, and the remnant of Judah that fled from Babylon's king into the land of Egypt were consumed there by the sword and famine. We give as an illustration of this Scripture, the Sphinx which was the silent witness of the events here recorded."
