8 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will bring upon you a sword and I will cut off from you man and beast.9 The land of Egypt will become a desolation and waste. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
Because [a]you said, ‘The Nile is mine, and I have made it,’10 therefore, behold, I am against you and against your [b]rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt an utter waste and desolation, from Migdol to Syene and even to the border of [c]Ethiopia.11 A man’s foot will not pass through it, and the foot of a beast will not pass through it, and it will not be inhabited for forty years.12 So I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the midst of desolated lands. And her cities, in the midst of cities that are laid waste, will be desolate forty years; and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands.”
13 ‘For thus says the Lord God, “At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples [d]among whom they were scattered.14 I will turn the fortunes of Egypt and make them return to the land of Pathros, to the land of their origin, and there they will be a lowly kingdom.15 It will be the lowest of the kingdoms, and it will never again lift itself up above the nations. And I will make them so small that they will not rule over the nations.16 And it will never again be the confidence of the house of Israel, [e]bringing to mind the iniquity of their having turned [f]to Egypt. Then they will know that I am the Lord God.”’”
