Prophecies against Egypt: Its Defeat at Carchemish

2To Egypt: Concerning the army of Pharaoh Neco king of Egypt, which was by the Euphrates River at Carchemish and which King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon defeated in the fourth year of the reign of Josiah's son Jehoiakim, king of Judah.H4714H2428H6549H4428H4714H5104H6578H3751H5019H4428H894H5221H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063 3"Prepare buckler and shield, and advance into the battle!H6186H4043H6793H5066H4421 4Harness the horses! Riders, mount up! Take your positions with your helmets! Polish lances, and put on armor!H631H5483H5927H6571H3320H3553H4838H7420H3847H5630 5Why am I seeing this?They're terrified, they have turned back. Their warriors are crushed, and they take flight. They don't look back. Terror is on every side," declares the Lord.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6"The swift cannot flee, nor can the strong escape. In the north, beside the Euphrates River, they stumble and fall.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7Who is this rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge -H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt is rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge. He says, 'I'll rise and cover the land. I'll destroy city and its inhabitants.'H4714H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104H559H5927H3680H776H6H5892H3427 9Horses, get up! Chariots, drive furiously! Let the warriors go forward, Ethiopia and Put who carry shields, and the Lydians who handle and bend the bow.H5927H5483H1984H7393H1368H3318H3568H6316H8610H4043H3866H8610H1869H7198 10That day belongs to the Lord of the Heavenly Armies. It is a day of vengeance to take vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour and be satisfied, and will drink its fill of their blood. For the Lord GOD of the Heavenly Armies will hold a sacrifice in the land of the north, by the Euphrates river.H3117H136H3069H6635H3117H5360H5358H6862H2719H398H7646H7301H1818H136H3069H6635H2077H6828H776H5104H6578 11Go up to Gilead and get balm, virgin daughter of Egypt! In vain you multiply remedies, but there is no healing for you.H5927H1568H3947H6875H1330H1323H4714H7723H7235H7499H8585 12The nations have heard of your disgrace, and your cry of distress fills the earth. Indeed, one warrior stumbles over another, and both of them fall down together."H1471H8085H7036H6682H4390H776H1368H3782H1368H5307H8147H3162

Nebuchadnezzar’s Conquest of Egypt

13This is the message that the Lord spoke to Jeremiah the prophet about the coming of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon to conquer the land of Egypt.H1697H3068H1696H3414H5030H5019H4428H894H935H5221H776H4714 14"Announce in Egypt, proclaim in Migdol. Proclaim also in Memphis and Tahpanhes. Say, 'Take your positions and be ready, for the sword will devour all around you.'H5046H4714H8085H4024H8085H5297H8471H559H3320H3559H2719H398H5439 15Why are your warriors prostrate?They don't stand because the Lord has brought them down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16They repeatedly stumble and fall. They say to each other, 'Get up! Let's go back to our people and to the land of our birth, away from the oppressor's sword.'H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17There they'll cry out, 'Pharaoh king of Egypt is just a big noise. He has let the appointed time pass by.'H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18As certainly as I'm alive and living," declares the King, whose name is the Lord of the Heavenly Armies. Indeed, one will come like Tabor among the mountains and like Carmel by the sea.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19Prepare your baggage for exile, daughter living in Egypt, for Memphis will become a desolate place. It will become a ruin without inhabitant.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20Egypt is a beautiful calf, but a horsefly from the north is surely coming.H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21Even the mercenary troops in her ranks are like a fattened calf. They too will turn around, and will flee together. They won't stand, for the day of their disaster is coming on them, the time of their punishment.H7916H7130H4770H5695H6437H5127H3162H5975H3117H343H935H6256H6486 22Her cry will be like that of a fleeing serpent when they come in strength. They're coming to her with axes like woodcutters.H6963H3212H5175H3212H2428H935H7134H2404H6086 23They'll cut down her forest, though it's impenetrable," declares the Lord, "for they're more numerous than locusts, and there are too many of them to count.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24The daughter of Egypt will be put to shame, she will be given into the hands of the people from the north."H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The Lord of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel says, "Look, I'm going to punish Amon of Thebes, Pharaoh, Egypt, its gods and its kings, Pharaoh, and those who trust in him.H3068H6635H430H3478H559H6485H527H528H4996H6547H4714H430H4428H6547H982 26I'll give them to those who are seeking their lives and to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and his officers. Then afterwards, Egypt will be inhabited as in times past," declares the Lord.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068

Israel will be Delivered

27"As for you, my servant Jacob, don't be afraid, and Israel, don't be dismayed. For I'll deliver you from a distant place, and your descendants from the land of their captivity. Jacob will return. He will be undisturbed and secure, and no one will cause him to fear.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28"As for you, my servant Jacob, don't be afraid, and Israel, don't be dismayed," declares the Lord, "for I am with you. Indeed, I'll make an end of all the nations where I scattered you; but I won't make an end of you! I'll discipline you justly, but I'll certainly not leave you unpunished."H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
