171In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
182"Son of man, 3Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. Every head was made bald, and every shoulder was rubbed bare, yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labor that he had performed against her.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 4Behold, I will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; 5and he shall carry off its wealtha6and despoil it and plunder it; and it shall be the wages for his army.
207I have given him the land of Egypt as his payment for which he labored, because they worked for me, declares the Lord GOD.
"On that day 8I will cause a horn to spring up for the house of Israel, and 9I will open your lips among them. 10Then they will know that I am the LORD."
