View In My Bible
1 In the tenth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month (on the first day of the month), the word of the Lord was made to me, and he said, 2 Thou, son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh, king of Egypt; and thou shalt prophesy of him, and of all Egypt. (Thou, son of man, set thy face toward Pharaoh, the king of Egypt; and thou shalt prophesy against him, and against all of Egypt.) 3 Speak thou, and thou shalt say, The Lord God saith these things, Lo! I to thee, thou Pharaoh, king of Egypt, thou great dragon, that liest in the midst of thy floods, and sayest, The flood is mine, and I made (it for) myself. (Speak thou, and thou shalt say, The Lord God saith these things, Lo! I am against thee, O Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, O great dragon, that liest in the midst of the River, that is, the Nile, and sayest, The River is mine, and I made it for myself.) 4 And I shall set a bridle in thy cheeks, and I shall glue the fishes of thy floods to thy scales; and I shall draw thee out of the midst of thy floods, and all thy fishes shall cleave to thy scales. (And I shall put a bridle on thy cheeks, or a hook in thy jaw, and I shall glue the fish of the River to thy scales; and I shall draw thee out of the midst of the River, and all thy fish shall cleave to thy scales.) 5 And I shall cast thee forth into desert, (thee) and all the fishes of thy flood; on the face of (the) earth thou shalt fall down, thou shalt not be gathered [up], neither shalt be gathered together (to thy people); to the beasts of (the) earth, and to the volatiles of the air, I gave thee to be devoured. (And I shall throw thee forth into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy River; thou shalt fall down upon the face of the earth, thou shalt not be gathered up, nor shalt thou be gathered to thy people, or buried; I shall give thee to be devoured by the beasts of the field, and by the birds of the air.) 6 And all the dwellers of Egypt shall know, that I am the Lord (And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know, that I am the Lord). For that that thou were a staff of (a) reed to the house of Israel, 7 (and) when they took (hold of) thee with (their) hand(s), and thou were broken (thou were broken), and rentest each shoulder of them, and when they rested on thee, thou were made less, and thou hast loosed, either discomforted, all the reins of them; 8 therefore the Lord God saith these things, Lo! I shall bring a sword on thee, and I shall slay of thee man and beast; (and so the Lord God saith these things, Lo! I shall bring a sword against thee, and I shall kill thy people and thy beasts;) 9 and the land of Egypt shall be into desert, and into wilderness, and they shall know, that I am the Lord. For that that thou saidest, The flood is mine, and I made it, (and the land of Egypt shall be made into a desert, and into a wilderness, and they shall know, that I am the Lord. And because thou hast said, The River is mine, and I made it,) 10 therefore lo! I to thee, and to thy floods. And I shall give into wilderness the land of Egypt, destroyed by sword, from the tower of Syene till to the terms of Ethiopia. (and so lo! I am against thee, and against thy River. And I shall make the land of Egypt into a wilderness, wasted by drought, from the tower of Syene unto the border of Ethiopia.) 11 The foot of man shall not pass by it, neither the foot of beast shall go in it, and it shall not be inhabited in forty years (and it shall not be inhabited for forty years). 12 And I shall give the land of Egypt forsaken, in the midst of lands forsaken, and the cities thereof in the midst of a city destroyed, and those shall be desolate by forty years. And I shall scatter (the) Egyptians into nations, and I shall winnow them into lands. (And I shall make the land of Egypt to be deserted, in the midst of lands that be deserted, and its cities in the midst of cities that be destroyed, and they shall be desolate for forty years. And I shall scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and I shall winnow them into other lands.) 13 For the Lord God saith these things, After the end of forty years I shall gather together Egypt from peoples, among which they were scattered; (For the Lord God saith these things, After the end of forty years I shall gather together the Egyptians from the nations, among whom they were scattered;) 14 and I shall bring again the captivity of Egypt. And I shall set them (again) in the land of Pathros, in the land of their birth; and they shall be there into a meek realm, (and I shall turn the fortunes of Egypt. And I shall set them again in the land of Pathros, in the land of their birth; but there they shall be a weak kingdom,) 15 and among other realms it shall be most low, and it shall no more be raised over nations. And I shall make them less, that they reign not on heathen men; (and among other kingdoms they shall be the most low, and no more shall they be raised up over other nations. Yea, I shall make them so diminished, that they shall not be able to reign over the heathen, or over the peoples;) 16 and they shall no more be to the house of Israel in(to) trust (and they shall no more be trustworthy for the house of Israel), (and) teaching (them) wickedness, that they flee, and follow them; and they shall know, that I am the Lord God.
