Rashi on 15:22 says Moshe made them travel into the desert against their will (Oznayim Latorah elaborates). What about Yirmiyahu 2:2 (kindness of your youth)?


What Rashi is referring to is that the Jews didn’t want to leave the Yam Suf, because they were busy collecting jewelry. The verse in Yirmiyahu is referring to their original entry to the desert, tha they entered it without knowing where they would get their livelihood.
