those marked for disaster, to disaster,
    and those marked for exile, to exile.
        and those marked for war, to war.

12 He will set on fire[b] the temples of the Egyptian gods. He will burn them down and carry off their gods. He will wrap the land of Egypt around himself, just as a shepherd wraps[c] his garment around himself, and he will move on unharmed.[d]
