Judgment on Egypt

46The word of the LORD that came to the prophet Jeremiah concerning the nations.H1697H3068H3414H5030H1471 2Concerning Egypt, about the army of Pharaoh Neco, king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates at Carchemish and which King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon defeated in the fourth year of King Jehoiakim son of Josiah of Judah:H4714H2428H6549H4428H4714H5104H6578H3751H5019H4428H894H5221H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063 3Prepare buckler and shield, and advance for battle!H6186H4043H6793H5066H4421 4Harness the horses; mount the steeds! Take your stations with your helmets, whet your lances, put on your coats of mail!H631H5483H5927H6571H3320H3553H4838H7420H3847H5630 5Why do I see them terrified? They have fallen back; their warriors are beaten down, and have fled in haste. They do not look back—terror is all around! says the LORD.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6The swift cannot flee away, nor can the warrior escape; in the north by the river Euphrates they have stumbled and fallen.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7Who is this, rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge?H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt rises like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge. It said, Let me rise, let me cover the earth, let me destroy cities and their inhabitants.H4714H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104H559H5927H3680H776H6H5892H3427 9Advance, O horses, and dash madly, O chariots! Let the warriors go forth: Ethiopia and Put who carry the shield, the Ludim, who draw the bow.H5927H5483H1984H7393H1368H3318H3568H6316H8610H4043H3866H8610H1869H7198 10That day is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of retribution, to gain vindication from his foes. The sword shall devour and be sated, and drink its fill of their blood. For the Lord GOD of hosts holds a sacrifice in the land of the north by the river Euphrates.H3117H136H3069H6635H3117H5360H5358H6862H2719H398H7646H7301H1818H136H3069H6635H2077H6828H776H5104H6578 11Go up to Gilead, and take balm, O virgin daughter Egypt! In vain you have used many medicines; there is no healing for you.H5927H1568H3947H6875H1330H1323H4714H7723H7235H7499H8585 12The nations have heard of your shame, and the earth is full of your cry; for warrior has stumbled against warrior; both have fallen together.H1471H8085H7036H6682H4390H776H1368H3782H1368H5307H8147H3162

Babylonia Will Strike Egypt

13The word that the LORD spoke to the prophet Jeremiah about the coming of King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon to attack the land of Egypt:H1697H3068H1696H3414H5030H5019H4428H894H935H5221H776H4714 14Declare in Egypt, and proclaim in Migdol; proclaim in Memphis and Tahpanhes; Say, "Take your stations and be ready, for the sword shall devour those around you."H5046H4714H8085H4024H8085H5297H8471H559H3320H3559H2719H398H5439 15Why has Apis fled? Why did your bull not stand? —because the LORD thrust him down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16Your multitude stumbled and fell, and one said to another, "Come, let us go back to our own people and to the land of our birth, because of the destroying sword."H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17Give Pharaoh, king of Egypt, the name "Braggart who missed his chance."H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18As I live, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts, one is coming like Tabor among the mountains, and like Carmel by the sea.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19Pack your bags for exile, sheltered daughter Egypt! For Memphis shall become a waste, a ruin, without inhabitant.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20A beautiful heifer is Egypt—a gadfly from the north lights upon her.H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21Even her mercenaries in her midst are like fatted calves; they too have turned and fled together, they did not stand; for the day of their calamity has come upon them, the time of their punishment.H7916H7130H4770H5695H6437H5127H3162H5975H3117H343H935H6256H6486 22She makes a sound like a snake gliding away; for her enemies march in force, and come against her with axes, like those who fell trees.H6963H3212H5175H3212H2428H935H7134H2404H6086 23They shall cut down her forest, says the LORD, though it is impenetrable, because they are more numerous than locusts; they are without number.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24Daughter Egypt shall be put to shame; she shall be handed over to a people from the north.H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, said: See, I am bringing punishment upon Amon of Thebes, and Pharaoh, and Egypt and her gods and her kings, upon Pharaoh and those who trust in him.H3068H6635H430H3478H559H6485H527H528H4996H6547H4714H430H4428H6547H982 26I will hand them over to those who seek their life, to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon and his officers. Afterward Egypt shall be inhabited as in the days of old, says the LORD.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068

God Will Save Israel

27But as for you, have no fear, my servant Jacob, and do not be dismayed, O Israel; for I am going to save you from far away, and your offspring from the land of their captivity. Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease, and no one shall make him afraid.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28As for you, have no fear, my servant Jacob, says the LORD, for I am with you. I will make an end of all the nations among which I have banished you, but I will not make an end of you! I will chastise you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished.H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
