Lament over Egypt
1 The word of the LORD came again to me saying, 2 "Son of man, prophesy and say, `Thus says the Lord GOD F414 ,
"Wail, R1037 `Alas for the day!'
3 "For the day is near,
Even the R1038 day of the LORD is near;
It will be a day of clouds, R1039
A time of doom for the nations.
4 "A sword will come upon Egypt,
And anguish will be in Ethiopia; F415
When the slain fall in Egypt,
They take R1040 away her wealth, F416
And her foundations are torn down. 5 "Ethiopia, F417 Put, Lud, all Arabia, R1041 F418 Libya F419 and the people F420 of the land that F421 is in league will fall with them by the sword."
6 `Thus says the LORD,
"Indeed, those who support Egypt R1042 will fall
And the pride of her power will come down;
From Migdol to Syene
They will fall within her by the sword,"
Declares the Lord GOD.
7 "They will be desolate
In the midst R1043 of the desolated lands;
And her cities will be
In the midst of the devastated cities.
8 "And they will know R1044 that I am the LORD,
When I set a fire R1045 in Egypt
And all her helpers are broken. 9 "On that day messengers R1046 will go forth from Me in ships to frighten secure R1047 Ethiopia; F422 and anguish R1048 will be on them as on the day of Egypt; for behold, it comes!"
10 `Thus says the Lord GOD,
"I R1049 will also make the hordes F423 of Egypt cease
By the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.
11 "He and his people with him,
The R1050 most ruthless of the nations,
Will be brought in to destroy the land;
And they will draw their swords against Egypt
And fill the land with the slain.
12 "Moreover, I will make the Nile R1051 canals dry
And sell R1052 the land into the hands of evil men.
And I will make the land desolate
And all F424 that is in it,
By the hand of strangers; I the LORD have spoken."
13 `Thus says the Lord GOD,
"I will also destroy R1053 the idols
And make the images F425 cease from Memphis. R1054 F426
And there will no longer be a prince in the land of Egypt;
And I will put fear in the land of Egypt.
14 "I will make Pathros R1055 desolate,
Set a fire in Zoan R1056
And execute judgments on Thebes. R1057 F427
15 "I will pour out My wrath on Sin, F428
The stronghold of Egypt;
I will also cut off the hordes of Thebes. F429
16 "I will set a fire in Egypt;
Sin F430 will writhe in anguish,
Thebes F431 will be breached
And Memphis F432 will have distresses F433 daily.
17 "The young men of On R1058 F434 and of Pi-beseth
Will fall by the sword,
And the F435 women will go into captivity.
18 "In Tehaphnehes R1059 the day will be F436 dark R1060
When I break R1061 there the yoke bars of Egypt.
Then the pride of her power will cease in her;
A cloud will cover her,
And her daughters will go into captivity.
19 "Thus I will execute R1062 judgments on Egypt,
And they will know that I am the LORD.""'
Victory for Babylon
20 In the eleventh R1063 year, in the first month, on the seventh of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 21 "Son of man, I have broken R1064 the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, behold, it has not been bound R1065 up for F437 healing or F438 wrapped with a bandage, that it may be strong to hold the sword. 22 "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, `Behold, I am against R1066 Pharaoh king of Egypt and will break his arms, both the strong and the broken; R1067 and I will make the sword fall R1068 from his hand. 23 `I will scatter R1069 the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands. 24 `For I will strengthen R1070 the arms of the king of Babylon and put My R1071 sword in his hand; and I will break the arms of Pharaoh, so that he will groan before him with the groanings of a wounded man. 25 `Thus I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh will fall. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he stretches R1072 it out against the land of Egypt. 26 `When I scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands, then they will know that I am the LORD.'
