| 1 The word of Jehovah came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man,
prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Wail ye, Alas for the day!
3 For the day is near, even the day of Jehovah is near; it shall be a day
of clouds, a time of the nations. 4 And a sword shall come upon Egypt, and
anguish shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt; and they
shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.
5 Ethiopia, and Put, and Lud, and all the mingled people, and Cub, and the
children of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.
6 Thus saith Jehovah: They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the
pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Seveneh shall they fall
in it by the sword, saith the Lord Jehovah. 7 And they shall be desolate
in the midst of the countries that are desolate; and her cities shall be in
the midst of the cities that are wasted. 8 And they shall know at I am
Jehovah, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and all her helpers are destroyed.
9 In that day shall messengers go forth from before me in ships to make
the careless Ethiopians afraid; and there shall be anguish upon them, as in
the day of Egypt; for, lo, it cometh. 10 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I
will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease, by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon. 11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the
nations, shall be brought in to destroy the land; and they shall draw their
swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain. 12 And I will make
the rivers dry, and will sell the land into the hand of evil men; and I will
make the land desolate, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I,
Jehovah, have spoken it. 13 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I will also
destroy the idols, and I will cause the images to cease from Memphis; and
there shall be no more a prince from the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear
in the land of Egypt. 14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set a
fire in Zoan, and will execute judgments upon No. 15 And I will pour my
wrath upon Sin, the stronghold of Egypt; and I will cut off the multitude of
No. 16 And I will set a fire in Egypt: Sin shall be in great anguish, and
No shall be broken up; and Memphis shall have adversaries in the
day-time. 17 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the
sword; and these cities shall go into captivity. 18 At Tehaphnehes
also the day shall withdraw itself, when I shall break there the yokes of
Egypt, and the pride of her power shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud
shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity. 19 Thus will I
execute judgments upon Egypt; and they shall know that I am Jehovah.
20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month,
in the seventh day of the month, that the word of Jehovah came unto
me, saying, 21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
and, lo, it hath not been bound up, to apply healing medicines, to
put a bandage to bind it, that it be strong to hold the sword.
22 Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against Pharaoh
king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong arm, and that
which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.
23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse
them through the countries. 24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king
of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break the arms of
Pharaoh, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded
man. 25 And I will hold up the arms of the king of Babylon; and the arms
of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I
shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch
it out upon the land of Egypt. 26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among
the nations, and disperse them through the countries; and they shall know
that I am Jehovah.|
