Jeremiah 46


46:1 The word of the LORD which came to Jeremiah the prophet
 against the Gentiles;
46:2 Against Egypt, against the army of Pharaoh-necho king of
 Egypt, who was by the river Euphrates in Carshemish, whom
 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of
 Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah.
46:3 Order ye the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle.
46:4 Harness the horses; and mount, ye horsemen, and stand forth
 with [your] helmets; furbish the spears, [and] put on the coats
 of mail.
46:5 Why have I seen them dismayed [and] turned away back? and
 their mighty ones are beaten down, and have fled apace, and
 look not back: [for] fear [was] on all sides, saith the LORD.
46:6 Let not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape!
 they shall stumble, and fall towards the north by the river
 Euphrates.
46:7 Who [is] this [that] cometh up as a flood, whose waters are
 moved as the rivers?
46:8 Egypt riseth up like a flood, and [his] waters are moved
 like the rivers; and he saith, I will go up, [and] will cover
 the earth; I will destroy the city and its inhabitants.
46:9 Come up, ye horses; and rage, ye chariots; and let the
 mighty men come forth: the Cushites and the Libyans, that
 handle the shield; and the Lydians that handle [and] bend the
 bow.
46:10 For this [is] the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of
 vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the
 sword shall devour, and it shall be satiated and made drunk
 with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in
 the north country by the river Euphrates.
46:11 Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter
 of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines; [for] thou
 shalt not be cured.
46:12 The nations have heard of thy shame, and thy cry hath
 filled the land: for the mighty man hath stumbled against the
 mighty, [and] they have fallen both together.
46:13 The word that the LORD spoke to Jeremiah the prophet, how
 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon should come [and] smite the land
 of Egypt.
46:14 Declare ye in Egypt, and publish in Migdol, and publish in
 Noph and in Tahpanhes: say ye, Stand fast, and prepare thee;
 for the sword shall devour around thee.
46:15 Why are thy valiant [men] swept away? they stood not,
 because the LORD did drive them.
46:16 He made many to fall, yes, one fell upon another: and they
 said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to the
 land of our nativity, from the oppressing sword.
46:17 They cried there, Pharaoh king of Egypt [is but] a noise;
 he hath passed the time appointed.
46:18 [As] I live, saith the king, whose name [is] the LORD of
 hosts, Surely as Tabor [is] among the mountains, and as Carmel
 by the sea, [so] shall he come.
46:19 O thou daughter dwelling in Egypt, furnish thyself to go
 into captivity: for Noph shall be waste and desolate without an
 inhabitant.
46:20 Egypt [is like] a very fair heifer, [but] destruction
 cometh; it cometh out of the north.
46:21 Also her hired men [are] in the midst of her like fatted
 bullocks; for they also have turned back, [and] have fled away
 together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity
 had come upon them, [and] the time of their visitation.
46:22 The voice thereof shall go like a serpent; for they shall
 march with an army, and come against her with axes, as hewers
 of wood.
46:23 They shall cut down her forest, saith the LORD, though it
 cannot be searched; because they are more than the
 grasshoppers, and [are] innumerable.
46:24 The daughter of Egypt shall be confounded; she shall be
 delivered into the hand of the people of the north.
46:25 The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel saith: Behold, I will
 punish the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their
 gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and [all] them that trust
 in him:
46:26 And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek
 their lives, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of
 Babylon, and into the hand of his servants: and afterward it
 shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, saith the LORD.
46:27 But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not
 dismayed, O Israel: for behold, I will save thee from afar, and
 thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall
 return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make [him]
 afraid.
46:28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I
 [am] with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations
 whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of
 thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee
 wholly unpunished.
