Ezekiel 29:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
2 Son of man, turn your face toward Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. 3 Say to him: Thus says the Lord God:
Pay attention! I am against you,
Pharaoh, king of Egypt,
Great dragon crouching
in the midst of the Nile,
Who says, “The Nile belongs to me;
I made it myself!”
4 I will put hooks in your jaws
and make all the fish of your Nile
Cling to your scales;
I will drag you up from your Nile,
With all the fish of your Nile
clinging to your scales.
