Judgment of Egypt
1 In the tenth R1005 year, in the tenth month, on the twelfth of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh R1006 king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. R1007 3 "Speak and say, `Thus says the Lord GOD F394 ,
"Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt,
The great monster R1008 F395 that lies in the midst of his rivers, F396
That has R1009 said, `My Nile is mine, and I myself have made it.'
4 "I will put hooks R1010 in your jaws
And make the fish of your rivers F397 cling to your scales.
And I will bring you up out of the midst of your rivers, F397
And all the fish of your rivers F397 will cling to your scales.
5 "I will abandon R1011 you to the wilderness, you and all the fish of your rivers; F398
You will fall on the open F399 field; you will not be brought together or gathered. R1012 F400
I have given you for food R1013 to the beasts of the earth and to the birds of the sky.
6 "Then all the inhabitants of Egypt will know that I am the LORD,
Because they have been only a staff R1014 made of reed to the house of Israel.
7 "When they took hold of you with the hand,
You broke R1015 and tore all their hands; F401
And when they leaned on you,
You broke and made all their loins quake." F402
8 `Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will bring R1016 upon you a sword and I will cut off from you man and beast. 9 "The land R1017 of Egypt will become a desolation and waste. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
Because you F403 said, R1018 `The Nile is mine, and I have made it,' 10 therefore, behold, I am against R1019 you and against your rivers, F404 and I will make the land of Egypt an utter waste and desolation, from Migdol to Syene and even to the border of Ethiopia. F405 11 "A man's foot will not R1020 pass through it, and the foot of a beast will not pass through it, and it will not be inhabited for forty years. 12 "So I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the midst R1021 of desolated lands. And her cities, in the midst of cities that are laid waste, will be desolate forty years; and I will scatter R1022 the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands."
13 `For thus says the Lord GOD, "At the end of forty years I will gather R1023 the Egyptians from the peoples among F406 whom they were scattered. 14 "I will turn the fortunes of Egypt and make them return to the land of Pathros, R1024 to the land of their origin, and there they will be a lowly kingdom. 15 "It will be the lowest R1025 of the kingdoms, and it will never again lift itself up above the nations. And I will make them so small that they will not rule R1026 over the nations. 16 "And it will never again be the confidence R1027 of the house of Israel, bringing R1028 F407 to mind the iniquity of their having turned to F408 Egypt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD.""'
17 Now in the twenty-seventh R1029 year, in the first month, on the first of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 18 "Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar R1030 king of Babylon made his army labor hard F409 against Tyre; every head was made bald R1031 and every shoulder was rubbed bare. But he and his army had no wages from Tyre for the labor that he had performed F410 against it." 19 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will R1032 give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. And he will carry off her wealth R1033 F411 and capture her spoil and seize her plunder; and it will be wages for his army. 20 "I have given him the land of Egypt for his labor which he performed, R1034 F412 because they acted for Me," declares the Lord GOD.
21 "On that day I will make a horn R1035 sprout for the house of Israel, and I will open R1036 F413 your mouth in their midst. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
