32:1 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 to me, saying,
32:2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of
Egypt, and say to him, Thou art like a young lion of the
nations, and thou [art] as a whale in the seas: and thou didst
come forth with thy rivers, and disturb the waters with thy
feet, and render their rivers foul.
32:3 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.
32:4 Then will I leave thee upon the land, and 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.
32:5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the
valleys with thy hight.
32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land in which thou
swimmest, [even] to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full
32:7 And when I shall extinguish thee, 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.
32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee,
and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
32:9 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.
32:10 Yes, 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.
32:11 For thus saith the Lord God; The sword of the king of
Babylon shall come upon thee.
32:12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to
fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall
lay waste the pomp of Egypt, and all its multitude shall be
32:13 I will destroy also all its beasts from beside the great
waters; neither shall the foot of man disturb them any more,
nor the hoofs of beasts disturb them.
32:14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers
to run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.
32:15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the
country shall be destitute of that of which it was full, when I
shall smite all them that dwell in it, then shall they know
that I [am] the LORD.
32:16 This [is] the lamentation with which 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.
32:17 It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth
[day] of the month, [that] the word of the LORD came to me,
32:18 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them
down, [even] her, and the daughters of the famous nations, to
the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the
32:19 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid
with the uncircumcised.
32:20 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
32:21 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the
midst of the grave with them that help him: they are gone down,
they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.
32:22 Asshur [is] there and all her company: his graves [are]
about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
32:23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her
company is around her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the
sword, who caused terror in the land of the living.
32:24 There [is] Elam and all her multitude around her grave,
all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who are gone down
uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth, who caused
their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne
their shame with them that go down to the pit.
32:25 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all
her multitude: her graves [are] around 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 are] slain.
32:26 There [is] Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her
graves [are] around him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by
the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the
32:27 And they shall not lie with the mighty [that are] fallen
of the uncircumcised, who are gone down to the grave, 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
32:28 Yes, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the
uncircumcised, and shalt lie with [them that are] slain with
32:29 There [is] Edom, her kings, and all her princes, who 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.
32:30 There [are] the princes of the north, all of them, and all
the Zidonians, who are gone down with the slain; with their
terror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie
uncircumcised with [them that are] slain by the sword, and bear
their shame with them that go down to the pit.
32:31 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.
32:32 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.
