Ezekiel 17:15-1915 aBut he rebelled against him by sending his ambassadors bto Egypt, that they might give him horses and a large army. cWill he thrive? Can one escape who does such things? Can he dbreak the covenant and yet escape? 16 e“As I live, declares the Lord God, surely fin the place where the king dwells gwho made him king, whose oath he despised, and whose covenant with him he broke, in Babylon he shall die. 17 hPharaoh with his mighty army and great company will not help him in war iwhen mounds are cast up and siege walls built to cut off many lives. 18He despised the oath in breaking the covenant, and behold, he gave his hand and did all these things; he shall not escape. 19Therefore thus says the Lord God: As I live, surely it is my oath that he despised, and my covenant that he broke. I will return it upon his head.
