In the 1eleventhyear, in the first month, on the seventh of the month, the word of the LORDcame to me saying,
21"Son of man, I have 2broken the arm of Pharaohking of Egypt; and, behold, it has not been 3bound up afor healingbor wrapped with a bandage, that it may be strong to hold the sword.
22"Thereforethussays the LordGOD, 'Behold, I am 4againstPharaohking of Egypt and will break his arms, both the strong and the 5broken; and I will make the sword6fall from his hand.
'I will 7scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands.
'For I will 8strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon and put9My sword in his hand; and I will break the arms of Pharaoh, so that he will groanbefore him with the groanings of a woundedman.
'Thus I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh will fall. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he 10stretches it out against the land of Egypt.
'When I scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands, then they will know that I am the LORD.' "
