The young men of ·Heliopolis [L On; C six miles northeast of Cairo] and Bubastis [C the capital of northern Egypt; forty miles northeast of Cairo] will fall dead ·in war [L by the sword], and ·the people [or the cities; L they] will be taken away as captives.
“‘And now this is what God, the Master, says: “‘I’ll smash all the no-god idols; I’ll topple all those huge statues in Memphis. The prince of Egypt will be gone for good, and in his place I’ll put fear—fear throughout Egypt! I’ll demolish Pathros, burn Zoan to the ground, and punish Thebes, Pour my wrath on Pelusium, Egypt’s fort, and knock Thebes off its proud pedestal. I’ll set Egypt on fire: Pelusium will writhe in pain, Thebes blown away, Memphis raped. The young warriors of On and Pi-beseth will be killed and the cities exiled. A dark day for Tahpanhes when I shatter Egypt, When I break Egyptian power and put an end to her arrogant oppression! She’ll disappear in a cloud of dust, her cities hauled off as exiles. That’s how I’ll punish Egypt, and that’s how she’ll realize that I am God.’”
