Context2Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord GOD,
Wail, Alas for the day!
3For the day is near,
4A sword will come upon Egypt,
5Ethiopia, Put, Lud, all Arabia, Libya and the people of the land that is in league will fall with them by the sword.
6Thus says the LORD,
7They will be desolate
8And they will know that I am the LORD,
9On that day messengers will go forth from Me in ships to frighten secure Ethiopia; and anguish will be on them as on the day of Egypt; for behold, it comes!
10Thus says the Lord GOD,
11He and his people with him,
12Moreover, I will make the Nile canals dry
13Thus says the Lord GOD,
14I will make Pathros desolate,
15I will pour out My wrath on Sin,
16I will set a fire in Egypt;
17The young men of On and of Pi-beseth
18In Tehaphnehes the day will be dark
19Thus I will execute judgments on Egypt,
Victory for Babylon
20In the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 21Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, behold, it has not been bound up for healing or wrapped with a bandage, that it may be strong to hold the sword. 22Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt and will break his arms, both the strong and the broken; and I will make the sword fall from his hand. 23I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands. 24For I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon and put My sword in his hand; and I will break the arms of Pharaoh, so that he will groan before him with the groanings of a wounded man. 25Thus I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh will fall. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he stretches it out against the land of Egypt. 26When I scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands, then they will know that I am the LORD.
