Lexham English Bible
4 And so I will put hooks in your jawbones,
and I will make the fish of your Nile streams stick to your scales,
and I will bring you up from the midst of your Nile streams,
and all of the fish of your Nile streams which cling to your scales.
5 And I will fling you to the desert,
you and all the fish of your Nile streams.
On the surface of the field you will fall;
you will not be gathered,
and you will not be assembled.
To the animals[a] of the field
and to the birds[b] of the heavens
I will give you as food.
6 And all of the inhabitants of Egypt will know that I am Yahweh,
because of their[c] being a staff of reed for the house of Israel.
