Ezekiel 29:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
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.
5 I will hurl you into the wilderness,
you and all the fish of your Nile.
You will fall into an open field,
you will not be picked up or gathered together.
To the beasts of the earth
and the birds of the sky
I give you as food.
6 Then all the inhabitants of Egypt
will know that I am the Lord.
Because you were a staff of reeds
for the house of Israel:
