1 In anno decimo, in decimo mense, duodecima mensis, factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, pone faciem tuam contra pharaonem, regem Aegypti, et prophetabis de eo et de Aegypto universa.
3 Loquere et dices: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego ad te, pharao, rex Aegypti, draco magne, qui cubas in medio fluminum tuorum et dicis: "Meus est fluvius, et ego feci memetipsum!".
4 Et ponam uncos in maxillis tuis et agglutinabo pisces fluminum tuorum squamis tuis et extraham te de medio fluminum tuorum, et universi pisces tui squamis tuis adhaerebunt.
5 Et proiciam te in desertum et omnes pisces fluminum tuorum. Super faciem terrae cades; non colligeris neque congregaberis. Bestiis terrae et volatilibus caeli dedi te ad devorandum.
6 Et scient omnes habitatores Aegypti quia ego Dominus, pro eo quod fuisti baculus arundineus domui Israel:
7 quando apprehenderunt te manu, confractus es et lacerasti omnem umerum eorum et, innitentibus eis super te, comminutus es et dissolvisti omnes lumbos eorum.
8 Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego adducam super te gladium et interficiam de te hominem et iumentum;
9 et erit terra Aegypti in desertum et solitudinem, et scient quia ego Dominus. Pro eo quod dixeris: "Fluvius meus est, et ego feci!",
10 idcirco ecce ego ad te et ad flumina tua, daboque terram Aegypti in solitudines, gladio dissipatam a Magdolo ad Syenen et usque ad terminos Chus.
11 Non pertransibit eam pes hominis, neque pes iumenti gradietur in ea, et non habitabitur quadraginta annis;
12 daboque terram Aegypti desertam in medio terrarum desertarum, et civitates eius in medio urbium subversarum erunt desolatae quadraginta annis, et dispergam Aegyptios in nationes et ventilabo eos in terras.
13 Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus: Post finem quadraginta annorum congregabo Aegyptios de populis, in quibus dispersi fuerunt,
14 et convertam sortem Aegypti et collocabo eos in terra Phatures, in terra nativitatis suae; et erunt ibi in regnum humile.
15 Inter regna cetera erit humillima et non elevabitur ultra super nationes, et imminuam eos, ne imperent gentibus.
16 Neque erunt ultra domui Israel in confidentiam, in memoriam revocans iniquitatem, cum sequerentur eos, et scient quia ego Dominus Deus".
17 Et factum est in vicesimo et septimo anno, in primo, in una mensis, factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens:
18 "Fili hominis, Nabuchodonosor, rex Babylonis, servire fecit exercitum suum servitute magna adversus Tyrum; omne caput decalvatum et omnis umerus attritus est, et merces non est reddita ei neque exercitui eius de Tyro pro servitute, qua servivit adversum eam.
19 Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego dabo Nabuchodonosor, regi Babylonis, terram Aegypti, et accipiet opes eius et depraedabitur manubias eius et diripiet spolia eius, et erit merces exercitui illius,
20 ut stipendium eius, pro quo servivit adversum eam. Dedi ei terram Aegypti pro eo quod laboraverunt mihi, ait Dominus Deus.
21 In die illo germinare faciam cornu domui Israel, et tibi dabo apertum os in medio eorum, et scient quoniam ego Dominus".
King James Version
1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.
4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.
5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.
6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
8 ¶ Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.
10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.
11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.
12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
13 ¶ Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:
14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom.
15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations.
16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
17 ¶ And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.
20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the Lord GOD.
21 In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
