A lamentation for the fearful fall of Egypt.
Ezekiel 32:1 In the eleuenth yeare, þe fyrst daye of the twelueth moneth, þe worde of þe Lorde came vnto me sayenge: Ezekiel 32:2 thou sonne of man, take vp a lamentacyon vpon Pharao þe king of Egypt, & saye vnto him: thou art reputed as a lyon of the Heathen, & as a whalfysh in þe see: Thou castest thy waters about the, thou troublest þe waters with thy fete and stampest in theyr floudes. Ezekiel 32:3 Thus sayeth the Lord God: I wyll sprede my net ouer the, namely, a greate multytude of people: these shall dryue þe into my yarne, Ezekiel 32:4 for I wyll cast the vpon the lande, and let the lye vpon the felde, that all þe foules of the ayre maye sytt vpon the. I will geue all the beastes of the felde ynough of þe. Ezekiel 32:5 Thy flesh will I cast vpon the hylles, and fyll the valleyes with thy hyghnesse. Ezekiel 32:6 I wyll water the lande with the aboundaunce of thy bloude euen to the mountaynes, and þe ryuers shal be full of thy bloude. Ezekiel 32:7 When þu art put out, I will couer þe heauen, and make his starres dymme. I will sprede a cloude ouer the Sunne, and the Mone shal not geue her light. Ezekiel 32:8 All þe lightes of heauen will I put out ouer þe, & bring darckenes vpon thy lande, sayeth the Lord God. Ezekiel 32:9 I will trouble the hertes of many people, when I bryng thy destruccion among þe Heathen & countrees, whom þu knowest not. Ezekiel 32:10 Yee, I will make many people wt theyr kinges so afrayed thorow the, þt theyr heare shall stande vp, when I shake my sweard at theyr faces. Sodenly shall they be astonyed, euery man in hym selfe, at the daye of thy fall.
The sword of Babylon shall destroy it.
Ezekiel 32:11 For thus sayeth the Lord God, the king of Babylons swearde shal come vpon the, Ezekiel 32:12 with the sweardes of the worthyes wyll I smyte downe thy people. All they that be myghtye amonge the Gentyles shal waste þe proude pompe of Egypte, & bryng downe all her people. Ezekiel 32:13 All the catell also of Egipte will I destroye, þt they shall come nomore vpon þe waters: so that nether mans fote ner beastes clawe, shall stere them eny more. Ezekiel 32:14 Then will I make their waters depe, & cause their floudes to runne lyke oyle, sayeth the Lord God. Ezekiel 32:15 When I make þe lande of Egypte desolate, and when the countre with all that is therin, shalbe layde waste, & when I smyte all them which dwell in it, that they may knowe, that I am þe Lord. Ezekiel 32:16 This is þe mournyng, that þe daughters of the Heathen shal make: Yee, a sorow & lamentacion shal they take vp, vpon Egypte, and all her people, sayeth the Lord God.
It shall be brought down to hell, among all the uncircumcised nations.
Ezekiel 32:17 In the .xii. yeare, the .xv. daye of the moneth, came the worde of the Lorde vnto me, sayinge: Ezekiel 32:18 Thou sonne of man. Take vp a lamentacion vpon þe people of Egypte, & cast them downe, yee, them I saye, & the myghtye people of þe heathen also, euen with them that dwell beneth: and with them that go downe into the graue. Ezekiel 32:19 Downe (how fayre so euer þu be) & laye the with þe vncircumcised. Ezekiel 32:20 Amonge those þt be slayne with þe swearde, shall they lye. To the swerde is she all redy delyuered: therfore pluck downe to þe grounde, her & all her multitude. Ezekiel 32:21 The myghtie worthies shal speake to him out of þe hell & to his helpers, þt be gone downe & lye vncircumcised and wt them that be slayne with the swearde. Ezekiel 32:22 Assur is there also wyth hys company, & their graues rounde aboute, which were slayne and fell all with the swearde, Ezekiel 32:23 whose graues lye besyde him in þe lowe pytte. Hys comens are buried rounde aboute hys graue, all together wounded and slayne with the swearde, which men afore tyme brought feare into the lande of the lyuynge. Ezekiel 32:24 There is Elam also wyth all hys people, and their graues rounde aboute: which all beynge wounded & slayne with þe swearde, are gone downe vncircumcysed vnder þe earth, which neuertheles somtime brought feare into the lande of the lyuynge: for the which they beare their shame, with þe other that be gone downe to the graue. Ezekiel 32:25 Their burial is geuen them and all their people, amonge them that be slayne. Their graues are rounde aboute al them, whych be vncircumcised, & with them that be slayne thorow þe swearde: for seyng that in times past they made the lande of the lyuynge afrayed they must now beare their awne shame, wt them that go downe to the pytte, and lye amonge them that be slayne. Ezekiel 32:26 There is Mesech also and Tubal, and their people, & their graues rounde aboute. These all are among the vncircumcised, and them that be slayne wyth the swearde, because afore tyme they made the lande of the lyuynge afrayed. Ezekiel 32:27 Shulde not they then lye also amonge þe worthyes, & vncircumcised Gyauntes? which with their weapens are gone downe to hell whose sweardes are layed vnder their heades, whose wyckednesse is vpon their bones: because that as worthyes, they haue brought feare into the lande of the lyuinge Ezekiel 32:28 Yee, amonge the vncircumcised shalt thou be destroyed, & slepe wyth them, that perished thorowe the swearde. Ezekiel 32:29 There is the lande of Edom wyth her kynges and princes also, which with theyr strength are layed by them that were slayne with the swearde, yee, amonge the vncircumcised, and them which are gone downe into the pytte. Ezekiel 32:30 Moreouer, there be all þe prynces of the north, with all the Sidonyans which are gone downe to the slayne. With their feare and strength they are come to confusion, and lye there vncircumcised, among those that be slayne with þe swearde: and beare their awne shame, with them that be gone downe to þe pytte. Ezekiel 32:31 Now whan Pharao seyth this, he shalbe conforted ouer all hys people, that is slayne with the swearde: both Pharao and all his hoost, sayeth the Lord God. Ezekiel 32:32 For I haue geuen my feare in the lande of the lyuinge. But Pharao and all his people shall lye among the vncircumcised, and amonge them that be slayne with the swearde sayeth the Lorde God.
