The waters from the sea will dry up,
And the river will be parched and dry.
The canals will become foul-smelling,
The streams of Egypt will thin out and dry up,
The reeds and the rushes will rot away.
The meadows by the Nile, by the edge of the Nile,
And all the sown fields of the Nile
Will become dry, be blown away, and be no more.
New International Version
5 The waters of the river will dry up,(A)
and the riverbed will be parched and dry.(B)
6 The canals will stink;(C)
the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up.(D)
The reeds(E) and rushes will wither,(F)
7 also the plants(G) along the Nile,
at the mouth of the river.
Every sown field(H) along the Nile
will become parched, will blow away and be no more.(I)
