|The word of the LORD came to me:||The LORD will punish Egypt. Eze.30.1-19|
|"Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: |
|For the day is near, |
the day of the LORD is near;
it will be a day of clouds,
a time of doom for the nations.
|A sword shall come upon Egypt, |
and anguish shall be in Ethiopia,
when the slain fall in Egypt,
and her wealth is carried away,
and her foundations are torn down.
|Ethiopia, and Put, and Lud, and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.|
|"Thus says the LORD: |
Those who support Egypt shall fall,
and her proud might shall come down;
from Migdol to Syene
they shall fall within her by the sword,
says the Lord GOD.
|And she shall be desolated in the midst of desolated countries |
and her cities shall be in the midst of cities that are laid waste.
|Then they will know that I am the LORD, |
when I have set fire to Egypt,
and all her helpers are broken.
|"On that day swift messengers shall go forth from me to terrify the unsuspecting Ethiopians; and anguish shall come upon them on the day of Egypt's doom; for, lo, it comes!|
|"Thus says the Lord GOD: |
I will put an end to the wealth of Egypt,
by the hand of Nebuchadrez'zar king of Babylon.
|He and his people with him, the most 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.
|And I will dry up the Nile, |
and will sell the land into the hand of evil men;
I will bring desolation upon the land and everything in it,
by the hand of foreigners;
I, the LORD, have spoken.
|"Thus says the Lord GOD: |
I will destroy the idols,
and put an end to the images, in Memphis;
there shall no longer be a prince in the land of Egypt;
so I will put fear in the land of Egypt.
|I will make Pathros a desolation, |
and will set fire to Zo'an,
and will execute acts of judgment upon Thebes.
|And I will pour my wrath upon Pelusium, |
the stronghold of Egypt,
and cut off the multitude of Thebes.
|And I will set fire to Egypt; |
Pelusium shall be in great agony;
Thebes shall be breached,
and its walls broken down.
|The young men of On and of Pibe'seth shall fall by the sword; |
and the women shall go into captivity.
|At Tehaph'nehes the day shall be dark, |
when I break there the dominion of Egypt,
and her proud might shall come to an end;
she shall be covered by a cloud,
and her daughters shall go into captivity.
|Thus I will execute acts of judgment upon Egypt. |
Then they will know that I am the LORD."
|In the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:||Pharoah's broken power. Eze.30.20-26|
|"Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and lo, it has not been bound up, to heal it by binding it with a bandage, so that it may become strong to wield the sword.|
|Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, both the strong arm and the one that was broken; and I will make the sword fall from his hand.|
|I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them throughout the lands.|
|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 will groan before him like a man mortally wounded.|
|I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh shall fall; and they shall know that I am the LORD. When I put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, he shall stretch it out against the land of Egypt;|
|and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them throughout the countries. Then they will know that I am the LORD."|
