New International Version
6 The canals will stink;(A)
the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up.(B)
The reeds(C) and rushes will wither,(D)
7 also the plants(E) along the Nile,
at the mouth of the river.
Every sown field(F) along the Nile
will become parched, will blow away and be no more.(G)
8 The fishermen(H) will groan and lament,
all who cast hooks(I) into the Nile;
those who throw nets on the water
will pine away.
9 Those who work with combed flax(J) will despair,
the weavers of fine linen(K) will lose hope.
