Ezekiel 30
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying,

2“Son of man, prophesy, and you have said, Thus said Lord YHWH: Howl, Aah! For the day!

3For a day [is] near, a day [is] near to YHWH! It is a time of cloud [over] the nations.

4And a sword has come into Egypt, || And there has been great pain in Cush, || In the falling of the wounded in Egypt, || And they have taken its store, || And its foundations have been broken down.

5Cush, and Phut, and Lud, and all the mixture, and Chub, || And the sons of the land of the covenant fall by sword with them,

6Thus said YHWH: And those supporting Egypt have fallen, || And the arrogance of her strength has come down, || From Migdol to Syene, they fall by sword in her, || A declaration of Lord YHWH.

7And they have been desolated in the midst of desolate lands, || And its cities are in the midst of cities [that are] laid waste.

8And they have known that I [am] YHWH, || In My giving fire against Egypt, || And all her helpers have been broken.

9In that day messengers go forth from before Me in ships, || To trouble confident Cush, || And there has been great pain among them, || As the day of Egypt, for behold, it has come.

10Thus said Lord YHWH: I have caused the multitude of Egypt to cease, || By the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon,

11He and his people with him—the terrible of nations, || Are brought in to destroy the land, || And they have drawn their swords against Egypt, || And have filled the land [with] the wounded.

12And I have made floods a dry place, || And I have sold the land into the hand of evildoers, || And I have made the land desolate, || And its fullness, by the hand of strangers, || I, YHWH, have spoken.

13Thus said Lord YHWH: And I have destroyed idols, || And caused vain things to cease from Noph, || And there is no longer a prince of the land of Egypt, || And I give fear in the land of Egypt.

14And I have made Pathros desolate, || And I have given fire against Zoan, || And I have done judgments in No,

15And I have poured out My fury on Sin, the stronghold of Egypt, || And I have cut off the multitude of No.

16And I have given fire against Egypt, || Sin is greatly pained, and No is to be broken, || And Noph has daily distresses.

17The youths of Aven and Pi-Beseth fall by sword, || And these go into captivity.

18And the day has been dark in Tehaphnehes, || In My breaking the yokes of Egypt there, || And the excellence of her strength has ceased in her, || Her! A cloud covers her, || And her daughters go into captivity.

19And I have done judgments in Egypt, || And they have known that I [am] YHWH.”

20And it comes to pass, in the eleventh year, in the first [month], on the seventh of the month, a word of YHWH has been to me, saying, “Son of man, 21I have broken the arm of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, || And behold, it has not been bound up to give healing, || To put a bandage to bind it, || To strengthen it—to lay hold on the sword. 22Therefore, thus said Lord YHWH: Behold, I [am] against Pharaoh, king of Egypt, || And I have broken his arms, || The strong one and the broken one, || And have caused the sword to fall out of his hand, 23And I have scattered the Egyptians among nations, || And have spread them through lands, 24And I have strengthened the arms of the king of Babylon, || And have given My sword into his hand, || And I have broken the arms of Pharaoh, || And he has groaned the groans of a pierced one—before him. 25And I have strengthened the arms of the king of Babylon, || And the arms of Pharaoh fall down, || And they have known that I [am] YHWH, || In My giving My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, || And he has stretched it out toward the land of Egypt. 26And I have scattered the Egyptians among nations, || And I have spread them through lands, || And they have known that I [am] YHWH!”
