Lament over Pharaoh and Egypt
1 In the twelfth R1103 year, in the twelfth month, on the first of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 "Son of man, take up a lamentation R1104 over Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him,
`You compared F459 yourself to a young lion R1105 of the nations,
Yet you are like the monster R1106 in the seas;
And you burst R1107 forth in your rivers
And muddied the waters with your feet
And fouled F460 their rivers.' "
3 Thus says the Lord GOD F461 ,
"Now I will spread R1108 My net over you
With a company of many peoples,
And they shall lift you up in My net.
4 "I will leave you on the land;
I will cast you on the open F462 field.
And I will cause all the birds R1109 of the heavens to dwell on you,
And I will satisfy the beasts of the whole earth with F463 you.
5 "I will lay your flesh on R1110 the mountains
And fill the valleys with your refuse.
6 "I will also make the land drink the discharge of your blood R1111
As far as the mountains,
And the ravines will be full of you.
7 "And when I extinguish R1112 you,
I will cover R1113 the heavens and darken their stars; R1114
I will cover the sun R1115 with a cloud
And the moon will not give its light.
8 "All the shining lights R1116 in the heavens
I will darken over you
And will set darkness on your land,"
Declares the Lord GOD. 9 "I will also trouble R1117 the hearts of many peoples when I bring R1118 your destruction among the nations, into lands which you have not known. 10 "I will make many peoples appalled R1119 at you, and their kings will be horribly afraid of you when I brandish My sword before them; and they R1120 will tremble every moment, every man for his own life, on the day of your fall."
11 For thus R1121 says the Lord GOD, "The sword of the king of Babylon will come upon you. 12 "By the swords of the mighty ones I will cause your hordes to fall; all of them are tyrants R1122 of the nations,
And they will devastate R1123 the pride of Egypt,
And all its hordes will be destroyed.
13 "I will also destroy all its cattle from beside many waters;
And the R1124 foot of man will not muddy them anymore
And the hoofs of beasts will not muddy them.
14 "Then I will make their waters settle
And will cause their rivers to run like oil,"
Declares the Lord GOD.
15 "When I make the land of Egypt a desolation, R1125
And the land is destitute of that which filled it,
When I smite all those who live in it,
Then they shall know R1126 that I am the LORD. 16 "This is a lamentation R1127 and they shall chant F464 it. The daughters of the nations shall chant F464 it. Over Egypt and over all her hordes they shall chant F464 it," declares the Lord GOD.
17 In the twelfth R1128 year, on the fifteenth R1128 of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 18 "Son of man, wail R1129 for the hordes of Egypt and bring R1130 it down, her and the daughters of the powerful nations, to the nether R1131 world, with those who go down to the pit;
19 `Whom do you surpass in beauty?
Go down and make your bed with the uncircumcised.' R1132 20 "They shall fall in the midst of those who are slain by the sword. She F465 is given over to the sword; they have drawn R1133 her and all her hordes away. 21 "The strong R1134 among the mighty ones shall speak of him and his helpers from the midst of Sheol, `They have gone down, they lie still, the uncircumcised, slain by the sword.'
22 "Assyria R1135 is there and all her company; her F466 graves are round about her. F467 All of them are slain, fallen by the sword, 23 whose graves R1136 are set in the remotest parts of the pit and her company is round about her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword, who spread F468 terror in the land of the living.
24 "Elam R1137 is there and all her hordes around her grave; all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who went down uncircumcised to the lower R1138 parts of the earth, who instilled their terror in the land R1139 of the living and bore R1140 their disgrace with those who went down to the pit. 25 "They have made a bed R1141 for her among the slain with all her hordes. Her graves are around it, they are all uncircumcised, slain by the sword (although their terror was instilled F469 in the land of the living), and they bore their disgrace with those who go down to the pit; they F470 were put in the midst of the slain.
26 "Meshech, R1142 Tubal R1143 and all their hordes are there; their graves surround F471 them. All of them were slain by the sword uncircumcised, R1144 though they instilled their terror in the land of the living. 27 "Nor R1145 do they lie beside the fallen heroes R1146 F472 of the uncircumcised, who went down to Sheol with their weapons of war and whose swords were laid under their heads; but the punishment for their iniquity R1147 rested on their bones, though the terror of these heroes F472 was once in the land of the living. 28 "But in the midst of the uncircumcised you will be broken and lie with those slain by the sword.
29 "There also is Edom, R1148 its kings and all its princes, F473 who for F474 all their might are laid with those slain by the sword; they will lie with the uncircumcised and with those who go down to the pit.
30 "There also are the chiefs F475 of the north, R1149 all of them, and all the Sidonians, R1150 who in spite of the terror resulting from their might, in shame went down with the slain. So they lay down uncircumcised with those slain by the sword and bore their disgrace with those who go down to the pit.
31 "These Pharaoh will see, and he will be comforted R1151 for all his hordes slain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his army," declares the Lord GOD. 32 "Though I instilled a terror of him in the land of the living, yet he will be made to lie down among the uncircumcised along with those slain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his hordes," declares the Lord GOD.
