Ezekiel 29:4-6 The Voice (VOICE)

    But I will set a hook in your jaws
        and make the fish of the Nile cling to your scales.
    I will haul you in out of your waterways,
        with all the fish clinging to your scales.
    Then I will take you and leave you out in the desert,
        you and all the fish of your waters.
    You’ll collapse in the wide open space,
        but no one will bother to collect your remains
    Or bury you with your ancestors.
        You’ll be food for wild beasts of the earth and birds in the sky.
    Then all who live in Egypt will know that I am the Eternal One.
        You have been nothing more than a staff made of wobbly reeds to the people of Israel.

Ezekiel 29:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

But I will put hooks in your jaws
    and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales.
I will pull you out from among your streams,
    with all the fish sticking to your scales.
I will leave you in the desert,
    you and all the fish of your streams.
You will fall on the open field
    and not be gathered or picked up.
I will give you as food
    to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky.

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

“‘You have been a staff of reed for the people of Israel.
