Judgment against Egypt and Her Allies1And [3came 1the word 2of the lord] to me, saying, 2O son of man, Prophesy and say! Thus says Adonai the lord; Oh, Oh the day; 3for [4is near 1the 2day 3of the lord], even [3approaches 1the day 2of the lord]. [2a day 3of cloud 4and 5a time 6of nations 1It will be]. 4And [2shall come 1a sword] against the Egyptians, and there will be a disturbance in the land of Ethiopia, and they shall fall being slain in Egypt, and they shall take her abundance, and [2shall be cast down 1her foundations]. 5Persians, and Cretans and Lydians, and Libyans, and Ethiopians, and all the intermixed peoples, and of the sons of my covenant [2by the sword 1shall fall] with them. 6Thus says Adonai the lord; And [4shall fall 1the 2supports 3of Egypt], and [4shall go down 1the 2insolence 3of her strength] from Migdol unto Syene; [2by the sword 1they shall fall] in her, says Adonai the lord. 7And it shall be made desolate in the midst of places being obliterated; and her cities [2in 3the midst 4of cities 5being made desolate 1will be]. 8And they shall know that I am the lord, whenever I shall appoint fire against Egypt, and [5shall be broken 1all 2the ones 3helping 4her]. 9In that day shall come forth messengers hastening to obliterate the hope of Ethiopia; and there will be a disturbance among them in the day of Egypt; for behold, it is come. 10Thus says Adonai the lord; And I will destroy the multitude of the Egyptians by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; 11he and his people with him, the pestilent ones from nations being sent to destroy the land. And they shall all empty out their swords against Egypt, and shall fill the land with slain. 12And I will make their rivers desolate. And I will render the land by the hand of evil ones; and I will obliterate the land, and its fullness, by the hands of strangers. I the lord have spoken. 13For thus says the lord God; And I will destroy the abominations, and I will rest the great ones from Memphis, and the rulers from the land of Egypt, and they will not be any longer. And I will put fear in the land of Egypt. 14And I will destroy the land of Pathros, and I will put fire upon Tanis, and I will execute punishment in Diospolis. 15And I will pour out my rage upon Sin, the strength of Egypt. And I will destroy the multitude of Memphis. 16And I will appoint fire unto Egypt. And [3with a disturbance 2shall be disturbed 1Sin]. And in Diospolis there will be inundation, and [2shall be dispersed 1waters]. 17Young men of Heliopolis and Bubastum [2by 3the sword 1shall fall], and the women [2into 3captivity 1shall go]. 18And in Tehaphnehes [3shall darken 1the 2day] in my breaking there the chiefdoms of Egypt. And [4shall perish 5there 1the 2insolence 3of her strength]. And [3her 1a cloud 2shall cover], and her daughters [2captives 1shall be led]. 19And I will execute judgment on Egypt. And they shall know that I am the lord.
A Proclamation against Pharaoh20And it took place in the eleventh year, in the first month, the seventh of the month, [3came 1the word 2of the lord] to me, saying, 21O son of man, [2the 3arms 4of Pharaoh 5king 6of Egypt 1I broke]; and behold, it was not earnestly beseeched to give to him healing, to put upon him a dressing, to be given strength to take hold of the sword. 22On account of this, thus says Adonai the lord; Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and I will break his arms, the strong, and the ones being broken; and I will throw down his sword from out of his hand. 23And I will scatter Egypt into the nations, and I will winnow them into the places. 24And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and I will put my broadsword into his hand. And he shall bring it upon Egypt, and he shall plunder her plunder, and he shall despoil her spoils. 25And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall; and they shall know that I am the lord, in [2putting 3the 4broadsword 1my] into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it against the land of Egypt. 26And I will scatter Egypt into the nations, and I shall winnow them into the places; and they shall know that I am the lord.
