023:019:001
The burden of Egypt.
Behold,
the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud,
and shall come into Egypt:
and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence,
and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.


023:019:002
And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians:
and they shall fight every one against his brother,
and every one against his neighbour;
city against city,
and kingdom against kingdom.


023:019:003
And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof;
and I will destroy the counsel thereof:
and they shall seek to the idols,
and to the charmers,
and to them that have familiar spirits,
and to the wizards.


023:019:004
And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord;
and a fierce king shall rule over them,
saith the Lord,
the LORD of hosts.


023:019:005
And the waters shall fail from the sea,
and the river shall be wasted and dried up.


023:019:006
And they shall turn the rivers far away;
and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up:
the reeds and flags shall wither.


023:019:007
The paper reeds by the brooks,
by the mouth of the brooks,
and every thing sown by the brooks,
shall wither,
be driven away,
and be no more.


023:019:008
The fishers also shall mourn,
and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament,
and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.


023:019:009
Moreover they that work in fine flax,
and they that weave networks,
shall be confounded.


023:019:010
And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof,
all that make sluices and ponds for fish.


023:019:011
Surely the princes of Zoan are fools,
the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish:
how say ye unto Pharaoh,
I am the son of the wise,
the son of ancient kings?


023:019:012
Where are they?
where are thy wise men?
and let them tell thee now,
and let them know what the LORD of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.


023:019:013
The princes of Zoan are become fools,
the princes of Noph are deceived;
they have also seduced Egypt,
even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.


023:019:014
The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof:
and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof,
as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.


023:019:015
Neither shall there be any work for Egypt,
which the head or tail,
branch or rush,
may do.


023:019:016
In that day shall Egypt be like unto women:
and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts,
which he shaketh over it.


023:019:017
And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt,
every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself,
because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts,
which he hath determined against it.


023:019:018
In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan,
and swear to the LORD of hosts;
one shall be called,
The city of destruction.


023:019:019
In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt,
and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.


023:019:020
And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt:
for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors,
and he shall send them a saviour,
and a great one,
and he shall deliver them.


023:019:021
And the LORD shall be known to Egypt,
and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day,
and shall do sacrifice and oblation;
yea,
they shall vow a vow unto the LORD,
and perform it.


023:019:022
And the LORD shall smite Egypt:
he shall smite and heal it:
and they shall return even to the LORD,
and he shall be intreated of them,
and shall heal them.


023:019:023
In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria,
and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt,
and the Egyptian into Assyria,
and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.


023:019:024
In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria,
even a blessing in the midst of the land:


023:019:025
Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless,
saying,
Blessed be Egypt my people,
and Assyria the work of my hands,
and Israel mine inheritance.
