And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the
countries that are desolate
As Judea and others, made desolate by the king of Babylon: and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate
such as Thebes, Sais, Memphis, and others; which should share the same fate as Jerusalem and other principal cities in other countries, which fell into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse
them through the countries;
such as were not carried captive into Babylon fled into other countries, as Arabia, Ethiopia, and other places, Berosus F21 makes mention of this captivity of the Egyptians under Nebuchadnezzar the son, which no other writer does.
