In the twenty-seventh year in the first [month], on the first [day] of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor strenuously against Tyre.a Every head was made bald and every shoulder chafed, but he and his army received no compensation from Tyre for the labor he expended against it.
Therefore this is what the Lord God says: I am going to give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon,b who will carry off its wealth, seizing its spoil and taking its plunder. This will be his army's compensation.
I have given him the land of Egypt as the pay he labored for, since they worked for Me." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God .
"In that day I will cause a horn to sproutc for the house of Israel, and I will enable you to speak outd among them. Then they will know that I am the Lord."
