Then say to them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will send for my servant1 Nebuchadnezzar2 king of Babylon, and I will set his throne3 over these stones I have buried here; he will spread his royal canopy4 above them.
He will come and attack Egypt,5 bringing death6 to those destined7 for death, captivity to those destined for captivity,8 and the sword to those destined for the sword.912
Hea will set fire10 to the temples11 of the gods12 of Egypt; he will burn their temples and take their gods captive.13 As a shepherd wraps14 his garment around him, so will he wrap Egypt around himself and depart from there unscathed.
There in the temple of the sunb15 in Egypt he will demolish the sacred pillars16 and will burn down the temples of the gods of Egypt.' "
