"How Sheshak will be captured, the boast of the whole earth seized! How desolate Babylon will be among the nations!
"All the princes of the north and all the Sidonians are there; they went down with the slain in disgrace despite the terror caused by their power. They lie uncircumcised with those killed by the sword and bear their shame with those who go down to the pit.
