10  And say to them: “Thus said the lord of Hosts, the God of Yisrael: I am sending for My servant King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon, and I will set his throne over these stones which I have embedded. He will spread out his pavilion over them.

43:10   And I will set his throne over these stones

Yirmiyahu is commanded to embed giant stones into the mortar in front of Pharaoh’s palace while men from Yehuda look on. This final symbolic act was performed with the hopes that the Jews who had fled to Egypt would regret their actions and return to Israel. The prophet declares that the gates of Egypt will not provide them protection, as the Babylonians will conquer Egypt as well. The only protection they can rely on is a return to Hashem’s will and the Land of Israel, or they too will be captured and destroyed. God’s dominion, while concentrated in the Holy Land, extends everywhere; they cannot flee from His bidding.
