A lamentation for the fearful fall of Egypt.
Ezekiel 32:1 And it came to pass, in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first of the month, that the word of Yahweh came, unto me, saying: Ezekiel 32:2 Son of man, Take up a dirge, over Pharaoh king of Egypt, and thou shalt say unto him, The young lion of the nations, thou didst deem thyself,Whereas, thou, wast like the crocodile in the seas, And didst cause thy streams to burst forth, And didst trouble the waters with thy feet, And foul their rivers. Ezekiel 32:3 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Therefore will I spread over thee my net, With a gathered host of many peoples,And they shall bring thee up in my net; Ezekiel 32:4 And I will stretch thee out on the land, Over the face of the field, will I fling thee,And, will cause to settle upon thee, all the birds of the heavens, And will satiate, with thee, the wild beasts of all the earth; Ezekiel 32:5 And I will lay thy flesh on the mountains,And fill the valleys with thy blood; Ezekiel 32:6 And will soak the earth with thy blood, amongst the mountains,And, the channels, shall be filled with thee. Ezekiel 32:7 And, when I quench thee, I will cover the heavens, And obscure their stars,The sunwith a cloud, will I cover, And, the moon, shall not shed her light; Ezekiel 32:8 As for all the light-bearers in the heavens, I will obscure them over thee,And will stretch out darkness over thy land, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh. Ezekiel 32:9 And I will aggrieve the heart of many peoples,when I bring them who are broken off from thee, among the nations, unto lands which thou hast not known. Ezekiel 32:10 Yea I will cause amazement, over thee, unto many peoples, And the hair, of their kings, shall stand on end over thee, when I brandish my sword over their faces,And they shall tremble every moment, every man for his own life, In the day of thy fall.
The sword of Babylon shall destroy it.
Ezekiel 32:11 For, thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh:the sword of the king of Babylon, shall reach thee. Ezekiel 32:12 With the swords of mighty men, will I cause thy multitude to fall, Terrible ones of the nations, all, of them!-And they shall spoil the pride of Egypt, And all her multitude, shall be destroyed, Ezekiel 32:13 And I will cause to perish all her beasts, from beside the many waters,And the foot of man, shall not trouble them, any more, Nor shall, hoof of beast, trouble them. Ezekiel 32:14 Then, will I make their waters, subside, And, their streamslike oil, will I cause to flow,Declareth My Lord, Yahweh. Ezekiel 32:15 When I make the land of Egypt an astonishment, A land laid bare of its fulness, When I cut off all that dwell therein, Then shall they know, that, I, am Yahweh. Ezekiel 32:16 A dirge, it is, And they shall chant it, The daughters of the nations, Shall chant it: Over Egypt and over all her multitude, Shall they chant it, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
It shall be brought down to hell, among all the uncircumcised nations.
Ezekiel 32:17 And it came to pass, in the twelfth year, on the fifteenth of the month, that the word of Yahweh came, unto me saying: Ezekiel 32:18 Son of man, Wail thou over the multitude of Egypt, and cause it to descendher and the daughters of the famous nationsinto the earth below, with them who descend into the pit. Ezekiel 32:19 Than whom, art thou more precious? Descend and be laid low with the uncircumcised: Ezekiel 32:20 Into the midst of them who were thrust through by the sword, let them fall,To the sword, hath she been delivered up, Lay ye hold of her, and all her multitudes. Ezekiel 32:21 The chiefs of the mighty, shall speak to him, out of the midst of hades, with his helpers,They have descended, They have lain down, The uncircumcised! Thrust through by the sword. Ezekiel 32:22 There, is Assyria, with all her gathered host, Round about him, are his graves, All of them, thrust through, The fallen by the sword: Ezekiel 32:23 Whose graves, have been set, In the recesses of the pit, And so her gathered host is round about her grave, All of them thrust through, Fallen by the sword, Who caused terror in the land of the living. Ezekiel 32:24 There, is Persia, with all her multitude, round about her grave,All of them, thrust through, The fallen by the sword, Who have descended, uncircumcised, into the earth below, Who made themselves a terror in the land of the living, And so they have borne their confusion, with them who descend into the pit: Ezekiel 32:25 In the midst of them who were thrust through, have they have placed a couch for her, with all her multitude, Round about it, are her graves,All of them, uncircumcised, Thrust through with the sword, For that their terror was caused in the land of the living, And so they have borne their confusion, with them who descend into the pit, In the midst of them who were thrust through, hath it been placed. Ezekiel 32:26 There, are Meshech-Tubal and all her multitude, Round about it, are her graves,All of them, uncircumcised, Who were thrust through with the sword, For that they made themselves a terror in the land of the living; Ezekiel 32:27 Therefore shall they not lie with the mighty men, The fallen ones from age-past times, Who descended into hades with their weapons of war, And their swords were placed under their heads, But their iniquities have come upon their bones, Because of the terror of the mighty, in the land of the living. Ezekiel 32:28 Thou, therefore, in the midst of the uncircumcised, shalt be overthrown, And shalt lie low with them who were thrust through by the sword. Ezekiel 32:29 There, are Edom, her kings and all her princes, Who have been delivered up in their might, With them who were thrust through by he sword,They, with the uncircumcised, shall lie low, Even with them who descend into the pit. Ezekiel 32:30 There, are the princes of the North, all of them, and all the Zidonians, Who have descended with them who were thrust through, By reason of the terror they caused, of their might, are they ashamed, So they have lain down uncircumcised, With them who were thrust through by the sword, And they have bowed their confusion, with them who descend into the pit. Ezekiel 32:31 Them, shall Pharaoh, see, and be grieved over all his multitude,Thrust through with the sword, shall be Pharaoh and all his army! Declareth My Lord, Yahweh. Ezekiel 32:32 For I have suffered his terror to be in the land of the living, Therefore, shall be laid low, In the midst of the uncircumcised, With them who were thrust through by the sword, Pharaoh and all his multitude! Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
