“‘God, the Master, says: “‘I’ll put a stop to Egypt’s arrogance. I’ll use Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to do it. He and his army, the most brutal of nations, shall be used to destroy the country. They’ll brandish their swords and fill Egypt with corpses. I’ll dry up the Nile and sell off the land to a bunch of crooks. I’ll hire outsiders to come in and waste the country, strip it clean. I, God, have said so.
This is what the Eternal Lord has to say: Eternal One: I will put an end to the wealth and population of Egypt using the power of Nebuchadnezzar as My weapon. I will dispatch the king of Babylon and his armies— the most ruthless in the world— to ravage the land! They will unsheathe their swords against Egypt and fill the land with the slain.
The Lord God saith these things, And I shall make to cease the multitude of Egypt in the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. (The Lord God saith these things, And I shall make an end of the multitude of Egypt by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon.)
