A Message about Egypt

19This message came to me concerning Egypt. Look! The Lord is advancing against Egypt, riding on a swift cloud. The idols of Egypt tremble. The hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.H4853H4714H3068H7392H7031H5645H935H4714H457H4714H5128H6440H3824H4714H4549H7130 2“I will make Egyptian fight against Egyptian—brother against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, province against province.H5526H4714H4714H3898H376H251H376H7453H5892H5892H4467H4467 3The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will confuse their plans. They will plead with their idols for wisdom and call on spirits, mediums, and those who consult the spirits of the dead.H7307H4714H1238H7130H1104H6098H1875H457H328H178H3049 4I will hand Egypt over to a hard, cruel master. A fierce king will rule them,” says the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.H853H4714H5534H3027H7186H113H5794H4428H4910H5002H113H3068H6635 5The waters of the Nile will fail to rise and flood the fields. The riverbed will be parched and dry.H4325H5405H3220H5104H2717H3001 6The canals of the Nile will dry up, and the streams of Egypt will stink with rotting reeds and rushes.H2186H5104H2186H2975H4693H1809H2717H7070H5488H7060 7All the greenery along the riverbank and all the crops along the river will dry up and blow away.H6169H2975H6310H2975H4218H2975H3001H5086 8The fishermen will lament for lack of work. Those who cast hooks into the Nile will groan, and those who use nets will lose heart.H1771H578H7993H2443H2975H56H6566H4365H6440H4325H535 9There will be no flax for the harvesters, no thread for the weavers.H5647H8305H6593H707H2355H954 10They will be in despair, and all the workers will be sick at heart.H1792H8356H6213H7938H99H5315 11What fools are the officials of Zoan! Their best counsel to the king of Egypt is stupid and wrong. Will they still boast to Pharaoh of their wisdom? Will they dare brag about all their wise ancestors?H8269H6814H191H6098H2450H3289H6547H1197H559H6547H1121H2450H1121H6924H4428 12Where are your wise counselors, Pharaoh? Let them tell you what God plans, what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is going to do to Egypt.H335H645H2450H5046H3045H3068H6635H3289H4714 13The officials of Zoan are fools, and the officials of Memphis are deluded. The leaders of the people have led Egypt astray.H8269H6814H2973H8269H5297H5377H8582H4714H6438H7626 14The Lord has sent a spirit of foolishness on them, so all their suggestions are wrong. They cause Egypt to stagger like a drunk in his vomit.H3068H4537H5773H7307H7130H4714H8582H4639H7910H8582H6892 15There is nothing Egypt can do. All are helpless—the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed.H4639H4714H7218H2180H3712H100H6213 16In that day the Egyptians will be as weak as women. They will cower in fear beneath the upraised fist of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.H3117H4714H802H2729H6342H6440H8573H3027H3068H6635H5130 17Just to speak the name of Israel will terrorize them, for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has laid out his plans against them.H127H3063H2283H4714H2142H6342H6440H6098H3068H6635H3289 18In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun.H3117H2568H5892H776H4714H1696H8193H3667H7650H3068H6635H259H559H5892H2041 19In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to the Lord at its border.H3117H4196H3068H8432H776H4714H4676H681H1366H3068 20It will be a sign and a witness that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to the Lord for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them.H226H5707H3068H6635H776H4714H6817H3068H6440H3905H7971H3467H7227H5337 21The Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know the Lord and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to the Lord and will keep it.H3068H3045H4714H4714H3045H3068H3117H5647H2077H4503H5087H5088H3068H7999 22The Lord will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to the Lord, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them.H3068H5062H4714H5062H7495H7725H3068H6279H7495 23In that day Egypt and Assyria will be connected by a highway. The Egyptians and Assyrians will move freely between their lands, and they will both worship God.H3117H4546H4714H804H804H935H4714H4714H804H4714H5647H804 24And Israel will be their ally. The three will be together, and Israel will be a blessing to them.H3117H3478H7992H4714H804H1293H7130H776 25For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, my special possession!”H3068H6635H1288H559H1288H4714H5971H804H4639H3027H3478H5159
