The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,
Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Wail, Alas for the day!
For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near; it shall be a day of clouds, a time of the nations.
A sword shall come on Mitzrayim, and anguish shall be in Kush, when the slain shall fall in Mitzrayim; and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.
Kush, and Put, and Lud, and all the mixed people, and Kuv, and the children of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.
Thus says the LORD: They also who uphold Mitzrayim shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from Migdol to Seven shall they fall in it by the sword, says the Lord GOD.
They shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate; and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.
They shall know at I am the LORD, when I have set a fire in Mitzrayim, and all her helpers are destroyed.
In that day shall messengers go forth from before me in ships to make the careless Kushim afraid; and there shall be anguish on them, as in the day of Mitzrayim; for, behold, it comes.
Thus says the Lord GOD: I will also make the multitude of Mitzrayim to cease, by the hand of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel.
He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought in to destroy the land; and they shall draw their swords against Mitzrayim, and fill the land with the slain.
I will make the rivers dry, and will sell the land into the hand of evil men; and I will make the land desolate, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I, the LORD, have spoken it.
Thus says the Lord GOD: I will also destroy the idols, and I will cause the images to cease from Mof; and there shall be no more a prince from the land of Mitzrayim: and I will put a fear in the land of Mitzrayim.
I will make Patros desolate, and will set a fire in Tzo`an, and will execute judgments on No.
I will pour my wrath on Sin, the stronghold of Mitzrayim; and I will cut off the multitude of No.
I will set a fire in Mitzrayim: Sin shall be in great anguish, and No shall be broken up; and Mof [shall have] adversaries in the day-time.
The young men of Aven and of Pi-Veset shall fall by the sword; and these [cities] shall go into captivity.
At Techafneches also the day shall withdraw itself, when I shall break there the yokes of Mitzrayim, and the pride of her power shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity.
Thus will I execute judgments on Mitzrayim; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
It happened in the eleventh year, in the first [month], in the seventh [day] of the month, that the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, I have broken the arm of Par`oh king of Mitzrayim; and, behold, it has not been bound up, to apply [healing] medicines, to put a bandage to bind it, that it be strong to hold the sword.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against Par`oh king of Mitzrayim, and will break his arms, the strong [arm], and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.
I will scatter the Mitzrim among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
I will strengthen the arms of the king of Bavel, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break the arms of Par`oh, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.
I will hold up the arms of the king of Bavel; and the arms of Par`oh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Bavel, and he shall stretch it out on the land of Mitzrayim.
I will scatter the Mitzrim among the nations, and disperse them through the countries; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
