Ezekiel 30:1-10

1The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, prophesy and say: This is what the Lord God says:

Wail: a Woe for the day!
3 For a day is near;
a day belonging to the Lord is near. b
It will be a day of clouds, c
a time of doom for the nations.
4 A sword will come against Egypt,
and there will be anguish in
Cush/ Cushite: The lands of the Nile in southern Egypt, including Nubia and Northern Sudan; the people who lived in that region
when the slain fall in Egypt,
and its wealth is taken away,
and its foundations are torn down.
5 Cush, Put, and Lud, e
and all the various foreign troops,
Or all Arabia

plus Libya
Lit Cub; Hb obscure
and the men of the covenant land
Probably Israel

will fall by the sword along with them.
6 This is what the Lord says:
Those who support Egypt will fall,
and its proud strength will collapse.
From Migdol to Syene
they will fall within it by the sword.
This is the declaration of the Lord God.

7 They will be desolate
Or be the most desolate of
desolate lands,
and their cities will lie
among ruined
Or will be the most ruined of
cities. k
8 They will know that I am
Yahweh/Yah: Or The Lord; the personal name of God in Hebrew; "Yah" is the shortened form of the name.
when I set fire to Egypt m
and all its allies are shattered.

9On that day, messengers will go out from Me in ships n to terrify confident Cush. Anguish will come over them on the day of Egypt’s doom. For indeed it is coming.”

10This is what the Lord God says:

I will put an end to the hordes
Or pomp, or wealth
of Egypt
by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.
