Prophecies against Egypt

2About Egypt and the army of Pharaoh Neco, Egypt's king, which was defeated at Carchemish on the Euphrates River by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon in the fourth year of Judah's King Jehoiakim son of Josiah:H4714H2428H6549H4428H4714H5104H6578H3751H5019H4428H894H5221H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063 3Deploy small shields and large; draw near for battle!H6186H4043H6793H5066H4421 4Harness the horses; mount the steeds; take your positions with helmets on! Polish the lances; put on armor!H631H5483H5927H6571H3320H3553H4838H7420H3847H5630 5Why have I seen [this]? They are terrified, they are retreating, their warriors are crushed, they flee headlong, they never look back, terror is on every side! [This is] the LORD's declaration.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6The swift cannot flee, and the warrior cannot escape! In the north by the bank of the Euphrates River, they stumble and fall.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7Who is this, rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters churn?H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt rises like the Nile, and its waters churn like rivers. He boasts: I will go up, I will cover the earth; I will destroy cities with their residents.H4714H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104H559H5927H3680H776H6H5892H3427 9Rise up, you cavalry! Race furiously, you chariots! Let the warriors go forth— Cush and Put, who are able to handle shields, and the Ludim, who are able to handle and string the bow.H5927H5483H1984H7393H1368H3318H3568H6316H8610H4043H3866H8610H1869H7198 10That day belongs to the Lord, the God of Hosts, a day of vengeance to avenge Himself against His adversaries. The sword will devour and be satisfied; it will drink its fill of their blood, because it will be a sacrifice to the Lord, the God of Hosts, in the northern land by the Euphrates River.H3117H136H3069H6635H3117H5360H5358H6862H2719H398H7646H7301H1818H136H3069H6635H2077H6828H776H5104H6578 11Go up to Gilead and get balm, Virgin Daughter Egypt! You have multiplied remedies in vain; there is no healing for you.H5927H1568H3947H6875H1330H1323H4714H7723H7235H7499H8585 12The nations have heard of your dishonor, and your outcry fills the earth, because warrior stumbles against warrior and together both of them have fallen.H1471H8085H7036H6682H4390H776H1368H3782H1368H5307H8147H3162 13[This is] the word the LORD spoke to Jeremiah the prophet about the coming of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to defeat the land of Egypt:H1697H3068H1696H3414H5030H5019H4428H894H935H5221H776H4714 14Announce it in Egypt, and proclaim it in Migdol! Proclaim it in Memphis and in Tahpanhes! Say: Take positions! Prepare yourself, for the sword devours all around you.H5046H4714H8085H4024H8085H5297H8471H559H3320H3559H2719H398H5439 15Why have your strong ones been swept away? Each has not stood, for the LORD has thrust him down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16He continues to stumble. Indeed, each falls over the other. They say: Get up! Let's return to our people and to the land of our birth, away from the sword that oppresses.H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17There they will cry out: Pharaoh king of Egypt was all noise; he let the opportune moment pass.H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18As I live— [this is] the King's declaration; the LORD of Hosts is His name. He will come like Tabor among the mountains and like Carmel by the sea.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19Pack your bags for exile, inhabitant of Daughter Egypt! For Memphis will become a desolation, uninhabited ruins.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20Egypt is a beautiful young cow, but a horsefly from the north is coming against her.H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21Even her mercenaries among her are like stall-fed calves. They too will turn back; together they will flee; they will not take their stand, for the day of their calamity is coming on them, the time of their punishment.H7916H7130H4770H5695H6437H5127H3162H5975H3117H343H935H6256H6486 22Egypt will hiss like a slithering snake, for [the enemy] will come with an army; with axes they will come against her like those who cut trees.H6963H3212H5175H3212H2428H935H7134H2404H6086 23They will cut down her forest— [this is] the LORD's declaration— though it is dense, for they are more numerous than locusts; they cannot be counted.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24Daughter Egypt will be put to shame, handed over to a northern people.H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: "I am about to punish Amon, [god] of Thebes, along with Pharaoh, Egypt, her gods, and her kings— Pharaoh and those trusting in him.H3068H6635H430H3478H559H6485H527H528H4996H6547H4714H430H4428H6547H982 26I will hand them over to those who want to take their lives— to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and his officers. But after this, it will be inhabited again as in ancient times." [This is] the LORD's declaration.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068

Reassurance for Israel

27But you, My servant Jacob, do not be afraid, and do not be discouraged, Israel, for without fail I will save you from far away and your descendants, from the land of their captivity! Jacob will return and have calm and quiet with no one to frighten him.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28And you, My servant Jacob, do not be afraid— [this is] the LORD's declaration— for I will be with you. I will bring destruction on all the nations where I have banished you, but I will not bring destruction on you. I will discipline you with justice, but I will by no means leave you unpunished.H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
