1 Et factum est duodecimo anno, in mense duodecimo, in una mensis, factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, assume lamentum super pharaonem, regem Aegypti, et dices ad eum: Leo gentium peristi, et eras sicut draco in mari; et bulliebas in fluminibus tuis et conturbabas aquas pedibus tuis et turbida faciebas flumina earum.
3 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Expandam super te rete meum in coetu populorum multorum, et extrahent te in sagena mea;
4 et proiciam te in terram, super faciem agri abiciam te et habitare faciam super te omnia volatilia caeli et saturabo de te bestias universae terrae;
5 et dabo carnes tuas super montes et implebo valles sanie tua.
6 Et irrigabo terram paedore sanguinis tui super montes, et voragines implebuntur ex te;
7 et operiam, cum exstinctus fueris, caelum et nigrescere faciam stellas eius: solem nube tegam, et luna non dabit lumen suum;
8 omnia luminaria caeli maerere faciam super te et dabo tenebras super terram tuam, dicit Dominus Deus.
9 Et commovebo cor populorum multorum, cum induxero contritionem tuam in gentibus super terras, quas nescis.
10 Et stupescere faciam super te populos multos, et reges eorum horrore nimio formidabunt super te, cum volare coeperit gladius meus coram facie eorum, et obstupescet tremefactus unusquisque pro anima sua in die ruinae tuae.
11 Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus: Gladius regis Babylonis veniet tibi,
12 in gladiis fortium deiciam multitudinem tuam; violentissimae gentium omnium hae et vastabunt superbiam Aegypti, et dissipabitur omnis pompa eius.
13 Et perdam omnia iumenta eius, quae erant super aquas plurimas, et non conturbabit eas pes hominis ultra, neque ungula iumentorum turbabit eas;
14 tunc purissimas reddam aquas eorum et flumina eorum quasi oleum adducam, ait Dominus Deus.
15 Cum dedero terram Aegypti desolatam, deseretur autem terra a plenitudine sua, quando percussero omnes habitatores eius, scient quia ego Dominus.
16 Planctus est, et plangent eum; filiae gentium plangent eum, super Aegyptum et super omnem pompam eius plangent eum", ait Dominus Deus.
17 Et factum est in duodecimo anno, in quinta decima mensis, factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens:
18 "Fili hominis, cane lugubre super pompam Aegypti et detrahe eam, ipsam et filias gentium robustarum ad inferiora terrae cum his, qui descendunt in lacum.
19 Quo pulchrior es? Descende et dormi cum incircumcisis.
20 In medio interfectorum gladio cadent; gladius datus est, attraxerunt eam et omnes populos eius.
21 Loquentur ei potentissimi robustorum de medio inferni, cum auxiliatoribus eius descenderunt: "Tacent incircumcisi interfecti gladio!".
22 Ibi Assyria et omnis multitudo eius, in circuitu illius sepulcra eius, omnes interfecti, qui ceciderunt gladio;
23 quorum data sunt sepulcra in profundissimis laci, et facta est multitudo eius per gyrum sepulcri eius; universi interfecti, cadentes gladio, qui dederant quondam formidinem in terra viventium.
24 Ibi Elam et omnis pompa eius per gyrum sepulcri sui; omnes hi interfecti ruentesque gladio, qui descenderunt incircumcisi ad inferiora terrae, qui dederant quondam formidinem suam in terra viventium et sustulerunt ignominiam suam cum his, qui descendunt in lacum.
25 In medio interfectorum posuerunt cubile eius, in omni pompa eius, in circuitu eius sepulcra illius, omnes hi incircumcisi interfectique gladio; dederant enim terrorem suum in terra viventium et sustulerunt ignominiam suam cum his, qui descendunt in lacum, in medio interfectorum positi sunt.
26 Ibi Mosoch, Thubal et omnis pompa eius, in circuitu illius sepulcra eius, omnes hi incircumcisi interfectique gladio, quia dederunt formidinem suam in terra viventium;
27 et non dormient cum fortibus, qui ceciderunt a saeculo et descenderunt ad infernum cum armis suis et posuerunt gladios suos sub capitibus suis, et fuerunt scuta eorum super ossa eorum, quia terror fortium erat in terra viventium.
28 Et tu ergo in medio incircumcisorum contereris et dormies cum interfectis gladio.
29 Ibi Idumaea, reges eius et omnes duces eius, qui dati sunt in robore suo cum interfectis gladio et qui cum incircumcisis dormiunt et cum his, qui descenderunt in lacum.
30 Ibi principes aquilonis omnes et universi Sidonii, qui deducti sunt cum interfectis in terrore suo, in sua fortitudine confusi; qui dormiunt incircumcisi cum interfectis gladio et sustulerunt confusionem suam cum his, qui descendunt in lacum.
31 Videbit eos pharao et consolabitur super universa pompa sua. Interfecti sunt gladio pharaonis et omnis exercitus eius, ait Dominus Deus,
32 quia dedi terrorem meum in terra viventium; et prostratus est in medio incircumcisorum cum interfectis gladio pharaonis et omnis pompa eius", ait Dominus Deus.
King James Version
1 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers.
3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will therefore spread out my net over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my net.
4 Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.
5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the valleys with thy height.
6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.
7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.
10 Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall.
11 ¶ For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee.
12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.
13 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.
14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.
15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I am the LORD.
16 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament for her, even for Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
17 ¶ It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
18 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the pit.
19 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid with the uncircumcised.
20 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the sword: she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all her multitudes.
21 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.
22 Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which caused terror in the land of the living.
24 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth, which caused their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.
25 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword: though their terror was caused in the land of the living, yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the midst of them that be slain.
26 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the living.
27 And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.
28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised, and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.
29 There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword: they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with them that go down to the pit.
30 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their terror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword, and bear their shame with them that go down to the pit.
31 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.
32 For I have caused my terror in the land of the living: and he shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
