9 Ethiopia was her strength, Egypt too, and that without limit; Put and the Libyans were her helpers. 9 Cush and Egypt were her boundless strength; Put and Libya were among her allies.
10 Yet she was carried away, she went into captivity; her little ones were dashed in pieces at the head of every street; for her honored men lots were cast, and all her great men were bound in chains. 10 Yet she was taken captive and went into exile. Her infants were dashed to pieces at the head of every street. Lots were cast for her nobles, and all her great men were put in chains.
