speak, and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: 7"Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, 8the great dragon that lies in the midst of his streams, 9that says, 'My Nile is my own; I made it for myself.'
I will 10put hooks in your jaws, and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales; and I will draw you up out of the midst of your streams, with all the fish of your streams that stick to your scales.
511And I will cast you out into the wilderness, you and all the fish of your streams; you shall fall 12on the open field, and 13not be brought together or gathered. To the beasts of the earth and to the birds of the heavens 14I give you as food.
1226And I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the midst of desolated countries, and her cities shall be a desolation forty years among cities that are laid waste. 27I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them through the countries.
1835"Son of man, 36Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. Every head was made bald, and every shoulder was rubbed bare, yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labor that he had performed against her.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 37Behold, I will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; 38and he shall carry off its wealthd39and despoil it and plunder it; and it shall be the wages for his army.
