NASB — Ezekiel 29 — KJV

Judgment of Egypt

1 In the atenth year, in the tenth [month], on the twelfth of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 “Son of man, set your face against aPharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all bEgypt. 3 Speak and say, ‘Thus says the Lord IGOD,
  “Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt,
  The great IIamonster that lies in the midst of his IIIrivers,
  That bhas said, ‘My Nile is mine, and I myself have made [it].’
  4 “I will put ahooks in your jaws
  And make the fish of your Irivers cling to your scales.
  And I will bring you up out of the midst of your Irivers,
  And all the fish of your Irivers will cling to your scales.
  5 “I will aabandon you to the wilderness, you and all the fish of your Irivers;
  You will fall on the IIopen field; you will not be brought together or IIIbgathered.
  I have given you for cfood to the beasts of the earth and to the birds of the sky.
  6 “Then all the inhabitants of Egypt will know that I am the LORD,
  Because they have been [only] a astaff [made] of reed to the house of Israel.
  7 “When they took hold of you with the hand,
  You abroke and tore all their Ihands;
  And when they leaned on you,
  You broke and made all their loins IIquake.”

¶ Because Iyou bsaid, ‘The Nile is mine, and I have made [it],’ 10 therefore, behold, I am aagainst you and against your Irivers, and I will make the land of Egypt an utter waste and desolation, from Migdol [to] Syene and even to the border of IIEthiopia. 11 A man’s foot will anot pass through it, and the foot of a beast will not pass through it, and it will not be inhabited for forty years. 12 So I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the amidst of desolated lands. And her cities, in the midst of cities that are laid waste, will be desolate forty years; and I will bscatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands.”

The judgment of Pharaoh for his treachery to Israel.

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 the heaven. 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 Israel. 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.

The desolation of Egypt.

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.

Egypt the reward of Nebuchadressar.

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 it: 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 Lord GOD.
