The desolation of Egypt and her helpers.
Ezekiel 30:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying: Ezekiel 30:2 Son of man, Prophesy, and thou shalt say, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh,Howl ye, Alas for the day! Ezekiel 30:3 For, near, is a day, Yea, near, is a day pertaining to Yahweh, A day of cloud, A time of nations, shall it be! Ezekiel 30:4 Then shall come a sword into Egypt, And there shall be a pang in Ethiopia, When the deadly wounded one falleth in Egypt,And they take away her multitude, and, her foundations, are broken down. Ezekiel 30:5 Ethiopia and Libya and Lydia, and all the mixed multitude and Cub, and the sons of the land of the covenant, with themby the sword, shall they fall. Ezekiel 30:6 Thus, saith Yahweh, Then shall fall, the supporters of Egypt, Then shall come down, the pride of her strength,From Migdol to Seweneh, by the sword, shall they fall therein, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh. Ezekiel 30:7 So shall they be made desolate in the midst of lands that are desolate,And, his citiesin the midst of cities that are laid waste, shall be found. Ezekiel 30:8 So shall they know, that, I, am Yahweh,By my setting a fire in Egypt, When all her helpers, shall be broken. Ezekiel 30:9 In that day, shall messengers go forth from before me, making haste, to cause dread unto Ethiopia so confident,And a pang shall be upon them, in the day of Egypt, For lo! it cometh. Ezekiel 30:10 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh,Therefore will I cause to cease, the multitude of Egypt, by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon. Ezekiel 30:11 He, and his people with him, the terrible ones of the nations, are about to be brought in to destroy the land,Therefore shall they unsheathe their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain; Ezekiel 30:12 And I will make the rivers dry, and will sell the land into the hand of wicked one,and make the land desolate, with the fulness thereof, by the hand of foreigners, I, Yahweh, have spoken. Ezekiel 30:13 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Therefore will I destroy the manufactured gods, and, Cause to cease the worthless goals, out of Noph, And prince out of the land of Egypt, shall none arise any more,And I will cause fear in the land of Egypt. Ezekiel 30:14 Then will I bring desolation upon Pathros, and, Set a fire in Zoan, and, Execute judgments upon No: and, Ezekiel 30:15 Pour out mine indignation upon Sin, the stronghold of Egypt, and, Will cut off the multitude of No. Ezekiel 30:16 So will I set a fire in Egypt, Sore anguish, shall take Sin, And, No, shall be for rending asunder, And, Noph, be in straits every day. Ezekiel 30:17 The young men of Aven and Pi-beseth, by the sword, shall fall; And lo! into captivity, shall they themselves wend their way. Ezekiel 30:18 And, in Tehaphnehes, hath the day become dark, Because I have broken, there, the yoke-bars of Egypt, And there shall be made to cease therein the pride of her strength,She, a cloud, shall cover her! And, her daughters, into captivity, shall wend their way. Ezekiel 30:19 Thus will I execute judgments on Egypt; And they shall know, that, I, am Yahweh.
The arm of Babylon shall be strengthened to break the arm of Egypt.
Ezekiel 30:20 And it came to pass, in the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh of the month, that the word of Yahweh came, unto me, saying: Ezekiel 30:21 Son of man, The arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt, have I broken,And lo! it hath not been bound upTo apply healing remedies, To put on a bandage for binding it up, To make it strong to grasp the sword. Ezekiel 30:22 Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, YahwehBehold me! against Pharaoh king of Egypt, Therefore will I break his arms, That which is strong, and, That which is broken,So will I cause the sword to fall out of his hand. Ezekiel 30:23 And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations,And scatter them throughout the lands; Ezekiel 30:24 And will uphold the arms of the king of Babylon, And put my sword into his hand,And will break the arms of Pharaoh, And he shall utter the groans of one thrust through, before him. Ezekiel 30:25 Yea I will uphold the arms of the king of Babylon, But, the arms of Pharaoh, shall fall,And they shall know, that, I, am Yahweh, By my putting my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, And he shall stretch it out against the land of Egypt. Ezekiel 30:26 So will I disperse the Egyptians among the nations, And scatter them throughout the lands, And they shall know, that, I, am Yahweh.
