8 1Are you better than 2Thebesa that sat 3by the Nile, with water around her, her rampart a sea, and water her wall?
9 4Cush was her strength; Egypt too, and that without limit; 5Put and the 6Libyans were herb helpers.
10 7Yet she became an exile; she went into captivity; 8her infants were dashed in pieces at the head of every street; for her honored men 9lots were cast, 10and all her great men were bound in chains.
