A Message About Egypt

46This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the nations:H1697H3068H3414H5030H1471 2Concerning Egypt: This is the message against the army of Pharaoh Neco king of Egypt, which was defeated at Carchemish on the Euphrates River by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah:H4714H2428H6549H4428H4714H5104H6578H3751H5019H4428H894H5221H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063 3"Prepare your shields, both large and small, and march out for battle!H6186H4043H6793H5066H4421 4Harness the horses, mount the steeds! Take your positions with helmets on! Polish your spears, put on your armor!H631H5483H5927H6571H3320H3553H4838H7420H3847H5630 5What do I see? They are terrified, they are retreating, their warriors are defeated. They flee in haste without looking back, and there is terror on every side," declares the LORD.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6"The swift cannot flee nor the strong escape. In the north by the River Euphrates they stumble and fall.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7"Who is this that rises like the Nile, like rivers of surging waters?H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt rises like the Nile, like rivers of surging waters. She says, 'I will rise and cover the earth; I will destroy cities and their people.'H4714H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104H559H5927H3680H776H6H5892H3427 9Charge, O horses! Drive furiously, O charioteers! March on, O warriors--men of Cush and Put who carry shields, men of Lydia who draw the bow.H5927H5483H1984H7393H1368H3318H3568H6316H8610H4043H3866H8610H1869H7198 10But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty--a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates.H3117H136H3069H6635H3117H5360H5358H6862H2719H398H7646H7301H1818H136H3069H6635H2077H6828H776H5104H6578 11"Go up to Gilead and get balm, O Virgin Daughter of Egypt. But you multiply remedies in vain; there is no healing for you.H5927H1568H3947H6875H1330H1323H4714H7723H7235H7499H8585 12The nations will hear of your shame; your cries will fill the earth. One warrior will stumble over another; both will fall down together."H1471H8085H7036H6682H4390H776H1368H3782H1368H5307H8147H3162 13This is the message the LORD spoke to Jeremiah the prophet about the coming of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to attack Egypt:H1697H3068H1696H3414H5030H5019H4428H894H935H5221H776H4714 14"Announce this in Egypt, and proclaim it in Migdol; proclaim it also in Memphis and Tahpanhes: 'Take your positions and get ready, for the sword devours those around you.'H5046H4714H8085H4024H8085H5297H8471H559H3320H3559H2719H398H5439 15Why will your warriors be laid low? They cannot stand, for the LORD will push them down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16They will stumble repeatedly; they will fall over each other. They will say, 'Get up, let us go back to our own people and our native lands, away from the sword of the oppressor.'H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17There they will exclaim, 'Pharaoh king of Egypt is only a loud noise; he has missed his opportunity.'H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18"As surely as I live," declares the King, whose name is the LORD Almighty, "one will come who is like Tabor among the mountains, like Carmel by the sea.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19Pack your belongings for exile, you who live in Egypt, for Memphis will be laid waste and lie in ruins without inhabitant.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20"Egypt is a beautiful heifer, but a gadfly is coming against her from the north.H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21The mercenaries in her ranks are like fattened calves. They too will turn and flee together, they will not stand their ground, for the day of disaster is coming upon them, the time for them to be punished.H7916H7130H4770H5695H6437H5127H3162H5975H3117H343H935H6256H6486 22Egypt will hiss like a fleeing serpent as the enemy advances in force; they will come against her with axes, like men who cut down trees.H6963H3212H5175H3212H2428H935H7134H2404H6086 23They will chop down her forest," declares the LORD, "dense though it be. They are more numerous than locusts, they cannot be counted.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24The Daughter of Egypt will be put to shame, handed over to the people of the north."H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "I am about to bring punishment on Amon god of Thebes, on Pharaoh, on Egypt and her gods and her kings, and on those who rely on Pharaoh.H3068H6635H430H3478H559H6485H527H528H4996H6547H4714H430H4428H6547H982 26I will hand them over to those who seek their lives, to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and his officers. Later, however, Egypt will be inhabited as in times past," declares the LORD.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068 27"Do not fear, O Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, O Israel. I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28Do not fear, O Jacob my servant, for I am with you," declares the LORD. "Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only with justice; I will not let you go entirely unpunished."H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
