1 The word of the
LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I
am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas;
yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart
as the heart of God:
3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that
they can hide from thee:
4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten
thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased
thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine
heart as the heart of God;
7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible
of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the
beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die
the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God?
but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that
10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand
of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus,
and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the
sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond,
the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald,
and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets
and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast
14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set
thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast
walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the
midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore
I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and
I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the
stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast
thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they
may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine
iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will
I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour
thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight
of all them that behold thee.
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished
at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any
20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against
22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee,
O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they
shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments
in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets;
and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword
upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house
of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about
them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the
25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house
of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and
shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then
shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant
26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses,
and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence,
when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them
round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their
1 In the tenth
year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the
word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
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 mine own,
and I have made it for myself.
4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish
of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee
up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers
shall stick unto thy scales.
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 meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of
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
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 brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a
sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
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.
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 unto the border of Ethiopia.
11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall
pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.
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.
13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will
I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:
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.
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.
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.
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 unto me, saying,
18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army
to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made
bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor
his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the
land of Egypt unto 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.
20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith
he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the
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.
1 The word of the
LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl
ye, Woe worth the day
3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy
day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall
be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they
shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be
5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people,
and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall
with them by the sword.
6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall;
and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of
Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.
7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that
are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities
that are wasted.
8 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a
fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
9 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to
make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come
upon them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of
Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.
11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations,
shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their
swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.
12 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the
hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all
that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I the LORD have spoken
13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and
I will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall
be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear
in the land of Egypt.
14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan,
and will execute judgments in No.
15 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt;
and I will cut off the multitude of No.
16 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain,
and No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses
17 The young men of Aven and of Pi-beseth shall fall by the
sword: and these cities shall go into captivity.
18 At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall
break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength
shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and
her daughters shall go into captivity.
19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know
that I am the LORD.
20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month,
in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came
unto me, saying,
21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller
to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.
22 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against Pharaoh
king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that
which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of
23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will
disperse them through the countries.
24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and
put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and
he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded
25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and
the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that
I am the LORD, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the
king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of
26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse
them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the
