New International Reader's Version
5 The waters of the Nile River will dry up.
The bottom of it will be cracked and dry.
6 Its canals will stink.
And the streams of Egypt will get smaller and smaller
until they dry up.
The tall grass that grows along the river will dry up.
7 So will the plants along the banks of the Nile.
Even the planted fields along the Nile will dry up.
Everything that grows there will blow away and disappear.
