Jeremiah Chapter 46 Star Chart: From "the fourth year of Jehoiakim" (46:2)(604 B.C.) till "the twenty-seventh year" of Jehoiachin’s captivity, that is, the sixteenth year after the destruction of Jerusalem (570 B.C.), as may be concluded from Ezekiel 29:17, where Nebuchadnezzar’s army is spoken of as having at that time suffered a great deal at the siege of Tyre; on which account the spoils of Egypt are promised them for their wages: and the promise was accordingly made good that same year. — Jos. Ant.10:9., is 34° years.

From when our Lord invited Egypt to "Come up, ye horses; and rage, ye (Auriga) chariots; and let the mighty (Gemini) men come forth; the (black Orion) Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the (Orion lion) shield; and the (Gemini) Lydians, that handle and bend the bow" (46:9) so that "the army of Pharaoh-necho king of Egypt ... was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim" (46:2) in 604 B.C. till when "Egypt is like a (golden solar) very fair heifer (Taurus -- Apis bull), but (red radius line) destruction cometh; it cometh out of the north" (46:20) and "her hired men (Gemini) are in the midst of her like (lunar) fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, and are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, and the time of their visitation" (46:21) in 570 B.C. is 34° years.



The Day of the Lord -- The Battle of Carchemish

46:1 The word of the Lord which came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Gentiles;

2 Against Egypt, against the army of Pharaohnecho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim (605 -604 B.C.) the son of Josiah king of Judah.

3 Order ye the (red radius line) buckler and (Orion's lion) shield, and draw near to battle.

4 Harness the horses (Auriga has a harness); and get up, ye horsemen, and stand forth with your helmets (Auriga, Perseus, Taurus and Gemini) and; furbish the (red radius) spears, and put on the brigandines.

5 Wherefore have I seen them dismayed and turned away back? and their mighty ones are beaten down, and are fled apace, and look not back: for fear was round about, saith the Lord.

6 Let not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they shall stumble, and fall toward the north by the river Euphrates.

7 Who is this that cometh up as a flood, whose waters are moved as the rivers?

8 Egypt riseth up like a flood, and his waters are moved like the rivers; and he saith, I will go up, and will cover the earth; I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof.

9 Come up, ye horses; and rage, ye (Auriga) chariots; and let the mighty (Gemini) men come forth; the (black Orion) Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the (Orion lion) shield; and the (Gemini) Lydians, that handle and bend the bow.

10 For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the (red radius line) sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their (red radius line) blood: for the Lord God of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

11 Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured.

12 The (Canis Major, Taurus) nations have heard of thy (red radius line) shame, and thy (red radius line) cry hath filled the land: for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty, and they are fallen both together.

13 The word that the Lord spake to Jeremiah the prophet, how Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon should come and smite the land of Egypt.

14 Declare ye in Egypt, and publish in Migdol, and publish in Noph and in Tahpanhes: say ye, Stand fast, and prepare thee; for the (red radius line) sword shall devour round about thee.

15 Why are thy valiant (gemini) men swept away? they stood not, because the Lord did drive them.

16 He made many to fall, yea, one fell upon another: and they said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to the land of our nativity, from the oppressing (red radius line or crescent) sword.

17 They did cry there, Pharaoh king of Egypt is but a noise; he hath passed the time appointed.

18 As I live, saith the King, whose name is the Lord of hosts, Surely as Tabor is among the mountains, and as Carmel by the sea, so shall he come.

19 O thou daughter dwelling in Egypt, furnish thyself to go into captivity: for Noph shall be waste and desolate without an inhabitant.

20 Egypt is like a (solar golden) very fair heifer (Taurus), but (red radius line) destruction cometh; it cometh out of the north.

21 Also her hired men (Gemini) are in the midst of her like (lunar) fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, and are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, and the time of their visitation.

22 The voice thereof shall go like a serpent; for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as hewers of wood (both Gemini and Orion have red radius handle axes).

23 They shall cut down her forest, saith the Lord, though it cannot be searched; because they are more than the grasshoppers, and are (Milky Way) innumerable.

24 The daughter of Egypt shall be confounded; she shall be delivered into the hand of the (Gemini) people of the north.

25 The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their (Gemini) gods, and their (Gemini) kings; even Pharaoh, and all them that trust in him:

26 And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek their lives, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar (Orion) king of Babylon, and into the hand of his (Gemini) servants: and afterward it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, saith the Lord.

27 But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I (Orion) will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity (539 B.C.); and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.

28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the Lord: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.
