" 'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will bring a sword against you and kill your men and their animals.19
Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the LORD. " 'Because you said, "The Nile2 is mine; I made it,3"
therefore I am against you4 and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt5 a ruin and a desolate waste6 from Migdol7 to Aswan,8 as far as the border of Cush.a911
No foot of man or animal will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years.1012
I will make the land of Egypt desolate11 among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.12
