"This is the lament1 they will chant for her. The daughters of the nations will chant it; for Egypt and all her hordes they will chant it, declares the Sovereign LORD."
In the twelfth year, on the fifteenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:218
"Son of man, wail for the hordes of Egypt and consign3 to the earth below both her and the daughters of mighty nations, with those who go down to the pit.419
Say to them, 'Are you more favored than others? Go down and be laid among the uncircumcised.'520
They will fall among those killed by the sword. The sword is drawn; let her be dragged6 off with all her hordes.721
From within the gravea8 the mighty leaders will say of Egypt and her allies, 'They have come down and they lie with the uncircumcised,9 with those killed by the sword.'
"Assyria is there with her whole army; she is surrounded by the graves of all her slain, all who have fallen by the sword.
Their graves are in the depths of the pit10 and her army lies around her grave.11 All who had spread terror in the land of the living are slain, fallen by the sword.
"Elam12 is there, with all her hordes around her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword.13 All who had spread terror in the land of the living14 went down uncircumcised to the earth below. They bear their shame with those who go down to the pit.1525
A bed is made for her among the slain, with all her hordes around her grave. All of them are uncircumcised,16 killed by the sword. Because their terror had spread in the land of the living, they bear their shame with those who go down to the pit; they are laid among the slain.
"Meshech and Tubal17 are there, with all their hordes around their graves. All of them are uncircumcised, killed by the sword because they spread their terror in the land of the living.
