Now in the 1twenty-seventhyear, in the first month, on the first of the month, the word of the LORDcame to me saying,
18"Son of man, 2Nebuchadnezzarking of Babylon made his armylaborahardagainstTyre ; everyhead was made3bald and everyshoulder was rubbedbare. But he and his armyhadnowages from Tyre for the labor that he had bperformedagainst it."
19Thereforethussays the LordGOD, "Behold, I 4will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzarking of Babylon. And he will carryoff her c5wealth and capture her spoil and seize her plunder ; and it will be wages for his army.
"I have given him the land of Egypt for his laborwhich he d6performed, because they acted for Me," declares the LordGOD.
"On that day I will make a 7hornsprout for the house of Israel, and I will e8open your mouth in their midst. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
