I will cause your hordes to fall by the swords of mighty ones, all of them most terrible among the nations. They shall bring to ruin the pride of Egypt, and all its hordes shall perish.
I will destroy all its livestock from beside abundant waters; and no human foot shall trouble them any more, nor shall the hoofs of cattle trouble them.
Then I will make their waters clear, and cause their streams to run like oil, says the Lord God.
When I make the land of Egypt desolate and when the land is stripped of all that fills it, when I strike down all who live in it, then they shall know that I am the Lord.
This is a lamentation; it shall be chanted. The women of the nations shall chant it. Over Egypt and all its hordes they shall chant it, says the Lord God.
In the twelfth year, in the first month, a on the fifteenth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:
Mortal, wail over the hordes of Egypt, and send them down, with Egypt b and the daughters of majestic nations, to the world below, with those who go down to the Pit.
"Whom do you surpass in beauty? Go down! Be laid to rest with the uncircumcised!"
They shall fall among those who are killed by the sword. Egypt c has been handed over to the sword; carry away both it and its hordes.
The mighty chiefs shall speak of them, with their helpers, out of the midst of Sheol: "They have come down, they lie still, the uncircumcised, killed by the sword."
Assyria is there, and all its company, their graves all around it, all of them killed, fallen by the sword.
