In the 1twelfthyear, on the 2fifteenth of the month, the word of the LORDcame to me saying,
18"Son of man, 3wail for the hordes of Egypt and 4bring it down, her and the daughters of the powerfulnations, to the 5netherworld, with those who godown to the pit;
19'Whom do you surpass in beauty? Godown and make your bed with the 6uncircumcised.'
"They shall fall in the midst of those who are slain by the sword. aShe is given over to the sword; they have 7drawn her and all her hordesaway.
"The 8strong among the mightyones shall speak of him and his helpers from the midst of Sheol, 'They have gonedown, they liestill, the uncircumcised, slain by the sword.'
"9Assyria is there and all her company; bher graves are roundaboutcher. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword,
23whose10graves are set in the remotestparts of the pit and her company is roundabout her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword, whodspreadterror in the land of the living.
"11Elam is there and all her hordesaround her grave; all of them slain, fallen by the sword, whowentdownuncircumcised to the 12lowerparts of the earth, whoinstilled their terror in the 13land of the living and 14bore their disgrace with those who wentdown to the pit.
"They have made a 15bed for her among the slain with all her hordes. Her graves are around it, they are alluncircumcised, slain by the sword (although their terror was einstilled in the land of the living ), and they bore their disgrace with those who godown to the pit; fthey were put in the midst of the slain.
"16Meshech, 17Tubal and all their hordes are there; their gravesgsurround them. All of them were slain by the sword18uncircumcised, though they instilled their terror in the land of the living.
"19Nor do they liebeside the fallenh20heroes of the uncircumcised, whowentdown to Sheol with their weapons of war and whose swords were laidunder their heads; but the punishment for their 21iniquityrested on their bones, though the terror of these iheroes was once in the land of the living.
"But in the midst of the uncircumcised you will be broken and lie with those slain by the sword.
29"There also is 22Edom, its kings and all its jprinces, whokfor all their might are laid with those slain by the sword; they will lie with the uncircumcised and with those who godown to the pit.
30"There also are the lchiefs of the 23north, all of them, and all the 24Sidonians, who in spite of the terror resulting from their might, in shamewentdown with the slain. So they laydownuncircumcised with those slain by the sword and bore their disgrace with those who godown to the pit.
"These Pharaoh will see, and he will be 25comforted for all his hordesslain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his army," declares the LordGOD.
32"Though I instilled a terror of him in the land of the living, yet he will be made to liedownamong the uncircumcised along with those slain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his hordes," declares the LordGOD.
