Ezekiel 30

And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord: Woe, woe worth the day! For the day of the Lord is near, a day of clouds; it shall be the end of the nations. And the sword shall come upon the Egyptians, and there shall be tumult in Ethiopia, and in Egypt men shall fall down slain together, and her foundations shall fall. Persians, Cretans, Lydians, Libyans and all the mixed multitude, and they of the children of My covenant, shall fall by the sword therein. And the supports of Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her strength shall come down from Migdol to Syene; they shall fall by the sword in it, says the Lord. And it shall be made desolate in the midst of desolate countries, and their cities shall be desolate in the midst of desolate cities; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall send fire upon Egypt, and when all that help her shall be broken. In that day shall messengers go forth hasting to destroy Ethiopia utterly, and there shall be tumult among them in the day of Egypt; for behold, it comes. 10 Thus says the Lord God: I will also destroy the multitude of the Egyptians by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, 11 his hand and his people's; they are plagues sent forth from the nations to destroy the land; and they all shall unsheathe their swords against Egypt, and the land shall be filled with slain. 12 And I will make their rivers desolate, and will destroy the land and its fulness by the hands of strangers: I the Lord have spoken. 13 For thus says the Lord God: I will also destroy the nobles from Memphis, and the princes of Memphis out of the land of Egypt; and they shall be no more. 14 And I will destroy the land of Pathros, and will send fire upon Tanis, and will execute vengeance on Noph. 15 And I will pour out My wrath upon Sin, the strength of Egypt, and I will destroy the multitude of Memphis. 16 And I will send fire upon Egypt; and Syene shall be greatly troubled; and there shall be a breaking in Noph, and waters shall be poured out. 17 The youths of Heliopolis and Pi Beseth shall fall by the sword, and the women shall go into captivity. 18 And the day shall be darkened in Tahpanhes, when I have broken there the scepters of Egypt; and the pride of her strength shall perish there, and a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall be taken prisoners. 19 And I will execute judgment on Egypt; and they shall know that I am the Lord. 20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 21 Son of man, I have broken the arms of Pharaoh, king of Egypt; and behold, it has not been bound up to be healed, to have a plaster put upon it, or to be strengthened to lay hold of the sword. 22 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and I will break his strong and outstretched arms, and I will strike down his sword from out of his hand. 23 And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations, and will utterly scatter them among the countries. 24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put My sword into his hand, and he shall bring it upon Egypt, and shall take her plunder and seize her spoils. 25 Yea, I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fail; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have put My sword into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out over the land of Egypt. 26 And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations, and utterly scatter them among the countries; and they all shall know that I am the Lord.
