Defeat of Pharaoh Foretold

46THE WORD of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning {and} against the [Gentile] nations.H1697H3068H3414H5030H1471 2Concerning {and} against Egypt: against the army of Pharaoh Necho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates at Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote {and} defeated in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah:H4714H2428H6549H4428H4714H5104H6578H3751H5019H4428H894H5221H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063 3Put in order the buckler and shield, and advance for battle!H6186H4043H6793H5066H4421 4Harness the horses, and mount, you horsemen! Stand forth with your helmets! Polish the spears, put on the coats of mail!H631H5483H5927H6571H3320H3553H4838H7420H3847H5630 5Why have I seen it? They are dismayed and have turned backward, and their mighty warriors are beaten down. They flee in haste and look not back; terror is on every side! says the Lord.H7200H2844H5472H268H1368H3807H5127H4498H6437H4032H5439H5002H3068 6Let not the swift flee nor the mighty man escape; in the north by the river Euphrates they stumble and fall.H7031H5127H1368H4422H3782H5307H6828H3027H5104H6578 7Who is this that rises up like the Nile [River], like the branches [of the Nile in the delta of Egypt] whose waters surge {and} toss?H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104 8Egypt rises like the Nile, like the rivers whose waters surge {and} toss. She says, I will rise, I will cover the earth; I will destroy cities and their inhabitants.H4714H5927H2975H4325H1607H5104H559H5927H3680H776H6H5892H3427 9Go up, you horses, and drive furiously, you chariots! Let the warriors go forth--men of Ethiopia and Put who handle the shield, men of Lud who are skilled in handling and stringing the bow.H5927H5483H1984H7393H1368H3318H3568H6316H8610H4043H3866H8610H1869H7198 10But that day is a day of the Lord, the Lord of hosts--a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself on His adversaries. And the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiated and shall drink its fill of their blood; for the Lord, the Lord of hosts has a sacrifice [like that of a great sin offering] in the north country by the river Euphrates.H3117H136H3069H6635H3117H5360H5358H6862H2719H398H7646H7301H1818H136H3069H6635H2077H6828H776H5104H6578 11Go up into Gilead and take [healing] balm, O Virgin Daughter of Egypt! In vain do you use many medicines; for you there is no healing {or} remedy.H5927H1568H3947H6875H1330H1323H4714H7723H7235H7499H8585 12The nations have heard of your disgrace {and} shame, and your cry has filled the earth. For warrior has stumbled against {and} thrown down warrior, and they have fallen both of them together.H1471H8085H7036H6682H4390H776H1368H3782H1368H5307H8147H3162 13The word that the Lord spoke to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the coming of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and his smiting of the land of Egypt:H1697H3068H1696H3414H5030H5019H4428H894H935H5221H776H4714 14Declare in Egypt and proclaim in Migdol; and publish in Memphis and in Tahpanhes; say, Stand forth and get yourself ready, for the sword devours round about you.H5046H4714H8085H4024H8085H5297H8471H559H3320H3559H2719H398H5439 15Why is your strong one [the sacred bull-god Apis] swept {and} dragged away? He stood not, because the Lord drove him {and} thrust him down.H47H5502H5975H3068H1920 16[The Lord] made many to stumble {and} fall; yes, they fell one upon another. And they said, Arise, and let us go back to our own people and to the land of our birth, away from the sword of the oppressor.H7235H3782H376H5307H7453H559H6965H7725H5971H776H4138H6440H3238H2719 17They cried there, Pharaoh king of Egypt is destroyed {and} is only a noise; he has let the appointed time [in which God had him on probation] pass by!H7121H6547H4428H4714H7588H5674H4150 18As I live, says the King, Whose name is the Lord of hosts, surely like Tabor among the mountains and like Carmel by the sea, so shall he [the king of Babylon, standing out above other rulers] come.H2416H5002H4428H8034H3068H6635H8396H2022H3760H3220H935 19O you daughter who dwells in Egypt {and} you who dwell with her, furnish yourselves [with all you will need] to go into exile, for Memphis will be waste, desolate, {and} burned up, without inhabitant.H1323H3427H4714H6213H3627H1473H5297H8047H3341H3427 20Egypt is a very fair heifer [like Apis the bull-god, to which the country is, so to speak, espoused], but destruction [a gadfly] is coming--out of the north it is coming [against her]!H4714H3304H5697H7171H935H935H6828 21Also her hired troops in the midst of her are like fatted calves [in the stall], for they also are turned back and are fleeing together; they do not stand, because the day of their calamity is coming upon them, the time of their visitation (their inspection and punishment).H7916H7130H4770H5695H6437H5127H3162H5975H3117H343H935H6256H6486 22The sound [of Egypt fleeing from the enemy] is like the rustling of an escaping serpent, for her foes advance with a mighty army and come against her with axes, like those who fell trees {and} cut wood.H6963H3212H5175H3212H2428H935H7134H2404H6086 23They shall cut down her forest, says the Lord, though it is impenetrable, because they [the invading army] are more numerous than locusts and cannot be counted.H3772H3293H5002H3068H2713H7231H697H369H4557 24The Daughter of Egypt shall be disgraced; she shall be delivered into the hands of the people of the north [the Chaldeans].H1323H4714H3001H5414H3027H5971H6828 25The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, says: Behold, I will visit punishment upon Amon [the chief god of the sacred city, the capital of Upper Egypt] of No {or} Thebes, and upon Pharaoh and Egypt, with her gods and her kings--even Pharaoh and all those [Jews and others] who put their trust in [Pharaoh as a support against Babylon].H3068H6635H430H3478H559H6485H527H528H4996H6547H4714H430H4428H6547H982 26And I will deliver them into the hands of those who seek their lives, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hands of his servants. Afterward [Egypt] will be inhabited as in the days of old, says the Lord.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H5650H310H7931H3117H6924H5002H3068 27But fear not, O My servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel. For behold, I will save you from afar, and your offspring from the land of their exile; and Jacob will return and be quiet and at ease, and none will make him afraid.H3372H5650H3290H2865H3478H3467H7350H2233H776H7628H3290H7725H8252H7599H2729 28Fear not, O Jacob My servant, says the Lord, for I am with you. For I will make a full {and} complete end of all the nations to which I have driven you; yet I will not make a full end of you. But I will chasten {and} correct you in just measure, and I will not hold you guiltless by any means {or} leave you unpunished.H3372H3290H5650H5002H3068H6213H3617H1471H5080H6213H3617H3256H4941H5352H5352
