Ezekiel 29

29:1 In the tenth year, in the tenth [month], in the twelfth
 [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
29:2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
 prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
29:3 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] my own, and I have made [it] for myself.
29:4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish
 of thy rivers to stick to thy scales, and I will bring thee out
 of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers
 shall stick to thy scales.
29:5 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 food to the beasts of the field and to the
 fowls of heaven.
29:6 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
29:7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break,
 and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee,
 thou didst break, and make all their loins to be at a stand.
29:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a
 sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
29:9 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].
29:10 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 to the border of Cush.
29:11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast
 shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty
29:12 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.
29:13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years
 will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were
29:14 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.
29:15 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.
29:16 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.
29:17 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 to me, saying,
29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army
 to serve a great service against Tyre: every head [was] made
 bald, and every shoulder [was] peeled: yet had he no wages, nor
 his army, for Tyre, for the service that he had served against
29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the
 land of Egypt to 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.
29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt [for] his labor with
 which he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith
 the Lord GOD.
29:21 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.
