The prophet's lamentation for the king of Egypt.
 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:
Et factum est, duodecimo anno, in mense duodecimo, in una mensis : factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharao the king of Egypt, and say to him: Thou art like the lion of the nations, and the dragon that is in the sea: and thou didst push with the horn in thy rivers, and didst trouble the waters with thy feet, and didst trample upon their streams.
Fili hominis, assume lamentum super Pharaonem regem Aegypti, et dices ad eum : Leoni gentium assimilatus es, et draconi qui est in mari, et ventilabas cornu in fluminibus tuis, et conturbabas aquas pedibus tuis, et conculcabas flumina earum.
 Therefore, thus saith the Lord God: I will spread out my net over thee with the multitude of many people, and I will draw thee up in my net.
Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus : Expandam super te rete meum in multitudine populorum multorum, et extraham te in sagena mea.
 And I will throw thee out on the land, I will cast thee away into the open field: and I will cause all the fowls of the air to dwell upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of all the earth with thee.
Et projiciam te in terram; super faciem agri abjiciam te : et habitare faciam super te omnia volatilia caeli, et saturabo de te bestias universae terrae.
 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and will fill thy hills with thy corruption,
Et dabo carnes tuas super montes, et implebo colles tuos sanie tua.
 And I will water the earth with thy stinking blood upon the mountains, and the valleys shall be filled with thee.
Et irrigabo terram foetore sanguinis tui super montes, et valles implebuntur ex te.
 And I will cover the heavens, when thou shalt be put out, and I will make the stars thereof dark: I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
Et operiam, cum extinctus fueris, caelum, et nigrescere faciam stellas ejus : solem nube tegam, et luna non dabit lumen suum.
 I will make all the lights of heaven to mourn over thee: and I will cause darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God, when thy wounded shall fall in the midst of the land, saith the Lord God.
Omnia luminaria caeli moerere faciam super te : et dabo tenebras super terram tuam, dicit Dominus Deus, cum ceciderint vulnerati tui in medio terrae, ait Dominus Deus.
 And I shall provoke to anger the heart of many people, when I shall have brought in thy destruction among the nations upon the lands, which thou knowest not.
Et irritabo cor populorum multorum : cum induxero contritionem tuam in gentibus super terras quas nescis.
 And I will make many people to be amazed at thee, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee, when my sword shall begin to fly upon their faces: and they shall be astonished on a sudden, every one for his own life, in the day of their ruin.
Et stupescere faciam super te populos multos, et reges eorum horrore nimio formidabunt super te, cum volare coeperit gladius meus super facies eorum : et obstupescent repente singuli pro anima sua in die ruinae tuae.
 For thus saith the Lord God: The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee,
Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus : Gladius regis Babylonis veniet tibi.
 By the swords of the mighty I will overthrow thy multitude: all these nations are invincible: and they shall waste the pride of Egypt, and the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.
In gladiis fortium dejiciam multitudinem tuam : inexpugnabiles omnes gentes hae, et vastabunt superbiam Aegypti, et dissipabitur multitudo ejus.
 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof that were beside the great waters: and the foot of man shall trouble them no more, neither shall the hoof of beasts trouble them.
Et perdam omnia jumenta ejus, quae erant super aquas plurimas : et non conturbabit eas pes hominis ultra, neque ungula jumentorum turbabit eas.
 Then will I make their waters clear, and cause their rivers to run like oil, saith the Lord God:
Tunc purissimas reddam aquas eorum, et flumina eorum quasi oleum adducam, ait Dominus Deus,
 When I shall have made the land of Egypt desolate: and the land shall be destitute of her fulness, when I shall have struck all the inhabitants thereof: and they shall know that I am the Lord.
cum dedero terram Aegypti desolatam : deseretur autem terra a plenitudine sua, quando percussero omnes habitatores ejus : et scient quia ego Dominus.
 This is the lamentation, and they shall lament therewith: the daughters of the nations shall lament therewith: for Egypt, and for the multitude thereof they shall lament therewith, saith the Lord God.
Planctus est, et plangent eum, filiae gentium plangent eum : super Aegyptum et super multitudinem ejus plangent eum, ait Dominus Deus.
 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month that the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
Et factum est in duodecimo anno, in quintadecima mensis : factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
 Son of man, sing a mournful song for the multitude of Egypt: and cast her down, both her, and the daughters of the mighty nations to the lowest part of the earth, with them that go down into the pit.
Fili hominis, cane lugubre super multitudinem Aegypti : et detrahe eam ipsam, et filias gentium robustarum, ad terram ultimam, cum his qui descendunt in lacum.
 Whom dost thou excel in beauty? go down and sleep with the uncircumcised.
Quo pulchrior es? descende, et dormi cum incircumcisis.
 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain with the sword: the sword is given, they have drawn her down, and all her people.
In medio interfectorum gladio cadent : gladius datus est; attraxerunt eam et omnes populos ejus.
 The most mighty among the strong ones shall speak to him from the midst of hell, they that went down with his helpers, and slept uncircumcised, slain by the sword.
Loquentur ei potentissimi robustorum de medio inferni, qui cum auxiliatoribus ejus descenderunt, et dormierunt incircumcisi interfecti gladio.
 Assur is there, and all his multitude: their graves are round about him, all of them slain, and that fell by the sword.
Ibi Assur, et omnis multitudo ejus : in circuitu illius sepulchra ejus, omnes interfecti, et qui ceciderunt gladio.
 Whose graves are set in the lowest parts of the pit: and his multitude lay round about his grave: all of them slain, and fallen by the sword, they that heretofore spread terror in the land of the living.
Quorum data sunt sepulchra in novissimis laci, et facta est multitudo ejus per gyrum sepulchri ejus : universi interfecti, cadentesque gladio, qui dederant quondam formidinem in terra viventium.
 There is Elam and all his multitude round about his grave, all of them slain, and fallen by the sword; that went down uncircumcised to the lowest parts of the earth: that caused their terror in the land of the living, and they have borne their shame with them that go down into the pit.
Ibi Aelam, et omnis multitudo ejus per gyrum sepulchri sui : omnes hi interfecti, ruentesque gladio, qui descenderunt incircumcisi ad terram ultimam, qui posuerunt terrorem suum in terra viventium, et portaverunt ignominiam suam cum his qui descendunt in lacum.
 In the midst of the slain they have set him a bed among all his people: their graves are round about him: all these are uncircumcised, and slain by the sword: for they spread their terror in the land of the living, and have borne their shame with them that descend into the pit: they are laid in the midst of the slain.
In medio interfectorum posuerunt cubile ejus in universis populis ejus : in circuitu ejus sepulchrum illius : omnes hi incircumcisi, interfectique gladio. Dederunt enim terrorem suum in terra viventium, et portaverunt ignominiam suam cum his qui descendunt in lacum : in medio interfectorum positi sunt.
 There is Mosoch, and Thubal, and all their multitude: their graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised and slain, and fallen by the sword: though they spread their terror in the land of the living.
Ibi Mosoch et Thubal, et omnis multitudo ejus : in circuitu ejus sepulchra illius : omnes hi incircumcisi, interfectique et cadentes gladio, quia dederunt formidinem suam in terra viventium.
 And they shall not sleep with the brave, and with them that fell uncircumcised, that went down to hell with their weapons, and laid their swords under their heads, and their iniquities were in their bones, because they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.
Et non dormient cum fortibus, cadentibusque, et incircumcisis, qui descenderunt ad infernum cum armis suis, et posuerunt gladios suos sub capitibus suis, et fuerunt iniquitates eorum in ossibus eorum : quia terror fortium facti sunt in terra viventium.
 So thou also shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised, and shalt sleep with them that are slain by the sword.
Et tu ergo in medio incircumcisorum contereris, et dormies cum interfectis gladio.
 There is Edom, and her kings, and all her princes, who with their army are joined with them that are slain by the sword: and have slept with the uncircumcised, and with them that go down into the pit.
Ibi Idumaea, et reges ejus, et omnes duces ejus, qui dati sunt cum exercitu suo cum interfectis gladio, et qui cum incircumcisis dormierunt, et cum his qui descendunt in lacum.
 There are all the princes of the north, and all the hunters: who were brought down with the slain, fearing, and confounded in their strength: who slept uncircumcised with them that are slain by the sword, and have borne their shame with them that go down into the pit.
Ibi principes aquilonis omnes, et universi venatores, qui deducti sunt cum interfectis, paventes, et in sua fortitudine confusi : qui dormierunt incircumcisi cum interfectis gladio, et portaverunt confusionem suam cum his qui descendunt in lacum.
 Pharao saw them, and he was comforted concerning all his multitude, which was slain by the sword: Pharao, and all his army, saith the Lord God:
Vidit eos Pharao, et consolatus est super universa multitudine sua, quae interfecta est gladio : Pharao, et omnis exercitus ejus, ait Dominus Deus.
 Because I have spread my terror in the land of the living, and he hath slept in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that are slain by the sword: Pharao and all his multitude, saith the Lord God.
Quia dedi terrorem meum in terra viventium, et dormivit in medio incircumcisorum cum interfectis gladio : Pharao, et omnis multitudo ejus, ait Dominus Deus.
