Nebuchadnezzar and his ·army [or people], the ·cruelest army [most ruthless] of any nation, will be brought in to destroy the land. They will draw their swords against Egypt and will fill the land with ·those they kill [the slain].
Nebuchadnezzar and his army are the cruelest army of any nation. They will be brought in to destroy the land. They will pull out their swords against Egypt. They will fill the land with those they kill.
“‘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.
He and his people with him, the strongest men of heathen men, shall be brought, to lose the land; and they shall draw out their swords on Egypt, and they shall fill the land with slain men. (He and his people with him, the strongest men of the heathen, shall be brought to destroy the land; and they shall draw out their swords against Egypt, and they shall fill the land with the slain.)
