In that day1 five cities2 in Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance3 to the LORD Almighty. One of them will be called the City of Destruction.a419
In that day5 there will be an altar6 to the LORD in the heart of Egypt,7 and a monument8 to the LORD at its border.
It will be a sign and witness9 to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior10 and defender, and he will rescue11 them.
So the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge12 the LORD. They will worship13 with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the LORD and keep them.1422
The LORD will strike15 Egypt with a plague;16 he will strike them and heal them. They will turn17 to the LORD, and he will respond to their pleas and heal18 them.
In that day19 there will be a highway20 from Egypt to Assyria.21 The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship22 together.
In that day23 Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria,24 a blessing25 on the earth.
The LORD Almighty will bless26 them, saying, "Blessed be Egypt my people,27 Assyria my handiwork,28 and Israel my inheritance.29"
