And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first of the month, that the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou wast like a young lion among the nations, and thou wast as a monster in the seas; a and thou didst break forth in thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers.
Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I will also spread out my net over thee with an assemblage of many peoples; b and they shall bring thee up in my net.
And I will leave c thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowl of the heavens to settle upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.
And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the valleys with the heap of thy [members]; d6
and I will water with thy blood the land wherein thou swimmest, even to the mountains; and the water-courses e shall be full of thee.
