It happened in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first [day] of the month, that the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, take up a lamentation over Par`oh king of Mitzrayim, and tell him, You were likened to a young lion of the nations: yet are you as a monster in the seas; and you did break forth with your rivers, and troubled the waters with your feet, and fouled their rivers.
Thus says the Lord GOD: I will spread out my net on you with a company of many peoples; and they shall bring you up in my net.
I will leave you on the land, I will cast you forth on the open field, and will cause all the birds of the sky to settle on you, and I will satisfy the animals of the whole eretz with you.
I will lay your flesh on the mountains, and fill the valleys with your height.
I will also water with your blood the land in which you swim, even to the mountains; and the watercourses shall be full of you.
