Their warriors are beaten down and have fled in haste; they look not back— terror on every side! declares the LORD.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6"The swift cannot flee away, nor the warrior escape; in the north by the river Euphrates they have stumbled and fallen.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7"Who is this, rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge?H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt rises like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge.

They do not stand because the LORD thrust them down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16He made many stumble, and they fell, and they said one to another, 'Arise, and let us go back to our own people and to the land of our birth, because of the sword of the oppressor.'H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17Call the name of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, 'Noisy one who lets the hour go by.'H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18"As I live, declares the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts, like Tabor among the mountains and like Carmel by the sea, shall one come.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19Prepare yourselves baggage for exile, O inhabitants of Egypt! For Memphis shall become a waste, a ruin, without inhabitant.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20"A beautiful heifer is Egypt, but a biting fly from the north has come upon her.H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21Even her hired soldiers in her midst are like fattened calves; yes, they 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 22"She makes a sound like a serpent 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, declares the LORD, though it is impenetrable, because they are more numerous than locusts; they are without number.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24The daughter of Egypt shall be put to shame; she shall be delivered into the hand of a people from the north."H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, said: "Behold, 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 deliver them into the hand of those who seek their life, into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and his officers. Afterward Egypt shall be inhabited as in the days of old, declares the LORD.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068 27"But fear not, O Jacob my servant, nor be dismayed, O Israel, for behold, I will save you from far away, and your offspring from the land of their captivity. Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease, and none shall make him afraid.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28Fear not, O Jacob my servant, declares the LORD, for I am with you. I will make a full end of all the nations to which I have driven you, but of you I will not make a full end. I will discipline you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished."H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
