And it came to pass in the seven and twentiethyear, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying ,
18Son of man,Nebuchadrezzarking of Babyloncaused his army to serve a greatservice against Tyrus: every head was made bald , and every shoulder was peeled : yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
Therefore thus saith the LordGOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzarking of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil,a and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.20
I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the LordGOD.21
In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth , and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
