Ezekiel 29:4-6 New Century Version (NCV)

But I will put hooks in your jaws,
    and I will make the fish of the Nile stick to your sides.
I will pull you up out of your rivers,
    with all the fish sticking to your sides.
I will leave you in the desert,
    you and all the fish from your rivers.
You will fall onto the ground;
    you will not be picked up or buried.
I have given you to the wild animals
    and to the birds of the sky for food.

Then all the people who live in Egypt will know that I am the Lord.

“‘Israel tried to lean on you for help, but you were like a crutch made out of a weak stalk of grass.

But I will put hooks in your jaws
    and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales.

But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.

And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.
