1. Egypt became tributary to the Babylonians under Amasis.

4. After the Macedonians it fell into the hands of the Romans.
5. After the division of the Roman empire it was subdued by the Saracens.

So true is it that Egypt, once so glorious, is the basest of kingdoms. See Newton on the prophecies.

Look, I know you are depending on Egypt, that splintered reed of a staff, which pierces the hand of anyone who leans on it! Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who depend on him.
