Ezekiel 32:1-16 World English Bible (WEB)

32 In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, “Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, ‘Son of man, take up a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt, and tell him,

“You were likened to a young lion of the nations;
    yet you are as a monster in the seas.
You broke out with your rivers,
    and troubled the waters with your feet,
    and fouled their rivers.”
The Lord Yahweh says:
    “I will spread out my net on you with a company of many peoples;
    and they will bring you up in my net.
I will leave you on the land.
    I will cast you out on the open field,
and will cause all the birds of the sky to settle on you.
    I will satisfy the animals of the whole earth with you.
I will lay your flesh on the mountains,
    and fill the valleys with your height.
I will also water the land in which you swim with your blood,
    even to the mountains.
    The watercourses will be full of you.
When I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens
    and make its stars dark.
I will cover the sun with a cloud,
    and the moon won’t give its light.
I will make all the bright lights of the sky dark over you,
    and set darkness on your land,” says the Lord Yahweh.
“I will also trouble the hearts of many peoples,
    when I bring your destruction among the nations,
    into the countries which you have not known.
10 Yes, I will make many peoples amazed at you,
    and their kings will be horribly afraid for you,
when I brandish my sword before them.
    They will tremble at every moment,
every man for his own life,
    in the day of your fall.”
11 For the Lord Yahweh says:
    “The sword of the king of Babylon will come on you.
12 I will cause your multitude to fall by the swords of the mighty.
    They are all the ruthless of the nations.
They will bring the pride of Egypt to nothing,
    and all its multitude will be destroyed.
13 I will destroy also all its animals from beside many waters.
    The foot of man won’t trouble them any more,
    nor will the hoofs of animals trouble them.
14 Then I will make their waters clear,
    and cause their rivers to run like oil,”
    says the Lord Yahweh.
15 “When I make the land of Egypt desolate and waste,
    a land destitute of that of which it was full,
when I strike all those who dwell therein,
    then they will know that I am Yahweh.

16 “‘“This is the lamentation with which they will lament. The daughters of the nations will lament with this. They will lament with it over Egypt, and over all her multitude,” says the Lord Yahweh.’”
