CEB 1 In the tenth year, on the twelfth day of the tenth month, the LORD's word came to me: NIV 1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month on the twelfth day, the word of the LORD came to me: CEB 2 Human one, face Pharaoh, Egypt's king, and prophesy against him and against all of Egypt. NIV 2 “Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. CEB 3 Speak and say, The LORD God proclaims: I'm against you, Pharaoh, Egypt's king, great crocodile lurking in the Nile's canals, who says, "The Nile is all mine; I made it for myself!" NIV 3 Speak to him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, you great monster lying among your streams. You say, “The Nile belongs to me; I made it for myself.” CEB 4 I will set hooks in your jaws; I will make the fish from the Nile's canals cling to your scales. I will drag you out of the Nile's canals, and also all the fish from the Nile's canals clinging to your scales. NIV 4 But I will put hooks in your jaws and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales. I will pull you out from among your streams, with all the fish sticking to your scales. CEB 5 I will fling you out into the desert, and also all the fish from the Nile's canals. You will fall on the open ground, and won't be gathered or retrieved. I've given you to the beasts of the earth and the birds in the sky for food. NIV 5 I will leave you in the desert, you and all the fish of your streams. You will fall on the open field and not be gathered or picked up. I will give you as food to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky. CEB 6 Everyone living in Egypt will know that I am the LORD. Because they were a flimsy crutch for the house of Israel— NIV 6 Then all who live in Egypt will know that I am the LORD. “ ‘You have been a staff of reed for the people of Israel. CEB 7 when they took you in hand, you would splinter and make their shoulders sore; when they leaned on you, you would break, bringing them to their knees— NIV 7 When they grasped you with their hands, you splintered and you tore open their shoulders; when they leaned on you, you broke and their backs were wrenched. CEB 8 now the LORD God proclaims: I'm bringing a sword against you, and I will cut off from you human and beast. NIV 8 “ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will bring a sword against you and kill both man and beast. CEB 9 The land of Egypt will be turned into a wasteland and ruins. Then they will know that I am the LORD. Because you said, "The Nile is mine; I made it," NIV 9 Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the LORD. “ ‘Because you said, “The Nile is mine; I made it,” CEB 10 I'm against you and against the Nile's canals. I will make the land of Egypt into an utter ruin, a wasteland, from Migdol to Syene and as far as its boundary with Cush. NIV 10 therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush. CEB 11 No foot, animal or human, will walk across it, and it won't be inhabited for forty years. NIV 11 The foot of neither man nor beast will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years. CEB 12 I will make the land of Egypt the most desolate of wastelands and its cities the most devastated of ruined cities. It will be a wasteland for forty years, and the Egyptians will be scattered among the nations and dispersed throughout the lands. NIV 12 I will make the land of Egypt desolate among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries. CEB 13 The LORD God proclaims: At the end of forty years, I will gather the Egyptians from among the nations where they are scattered. NIV 13 “ ‘Yet this is what the Sovereign LORD says: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were scattered. CEB 14 I will improve their circumstances and bring them back to the land of Pathros, the land of their origin. Egypt will be a lowly kingdom there. NIV 14 I will bring them back from captivity and return them to Upper Egypt, the land of their ancestry. There they will be a lowly kingdom. CEB 15 Out of all the kingdoms, it will be the lowliest. It will never again exalt itself over the nations, and I will make it small to keep it from ruling the nations. NIV 15 It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. CEB 16 The house of Israel will never again bring guilt on itself by faithlessly turning to Egypt for help, for they will know that I am the LORD God. NIV 16 Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.’ ” CEB 17 In the twenty-seventh year, on the first day of the first month, the LORD's word came to me: NIV 17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month on the first day, the word of the LORD came to me: CEB 18 Human one, Babylon's King Nebuchadrezzar made his army labor very hard against Tyre. Every head was scraped bald, and every shoulder was rubbed raw, yet he got nothing from Tyre for himself or for his army for any of his efforts against it. NIV 18 “Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon drove his army in a hard campaign against Tyre; every head was rubbed bare and every shoulder made raw. Yet he and his army got no reward from the campaign he led against Tyre. CEB 19 So now the LORD God proclaims: I'm going to give the land of Egypt to Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar. He will carry off its wealth, he will plunder and loot it, and it will be the wages for his army. NIV 19 Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. CEB 20 I will give him the land of Egypt as payment for his laboring for me. This is what the LORD God says. NIV 20 I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign LORD. CEB 21 On that day I will give new strength to the house of Israel, and I will open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am the LORD. NIV 21 “On that day I will make a horn grow for the Israelites, and I will open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
