The king of Egypt shall be overthrown, and his kingdom wasted: it shall be given to Nabuchodonosor for his service against Tyre.
1 In the tenth year, the tenth month, the eleventh day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
In anno decimo, decimo mense, undecima die mensis, factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharao king of Egypt: and thou shalt prophesy of him, and of all Egypt:
Fili hominis, pone faciem tuam contra Pharaonem regem Aegypti, et prophetabis de eo, et de Aegypto universa.
3 Speak, and say: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I come against thee, Pharao king of Egypt, thou great dragon that liest in the midst of thy rivers, and sayest: The river is mine, and I made myself.
Loquere, et dices : Haec dicit Dominus Deus : Ecce ego ad te, Pharao rex Aegypti, draco magne, qui cubas in medio fluminum tuorum, et dicis : Meus est fluvius, et ego feci memetipsum.
4 But I will put a bridle in thy jaws: and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick to thy scales: and I will draw thee out of the midst of thy rivers, and all thy fish shall stick to thy scales.
Et ponam frenum in maxillis tuis, et agglutinabo pisces fluminum tuorum squamis tuis, et extraham te de medio fluminum tuorum, et universi pisces tui squamis tuis adhaerebunt.
5 And I will cast thee forth into the desert, and all the fish of thy river: thou shalt fall upon the face of the earth, thou shalt not be taken up, nor gathered together: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the earth, and to the fowls of the air.
Et projiciam te in desertum, et omnes pisces fluminis tui : super faciem terrae cades; non colligeris, neque congregaberis : bestiis terrae et volatilibus caeli dedi te ad devorandum.
6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the Lord: because thou hast been a staff of a reed to the house of Israel.
Et scient omnes habitatores Aegypti quia ego Dominus, pro eo quod fuisti baculus arundineus domui Israel :
7 When they took hold of thee with the hand thou didst break, and rent all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brokest, and weakenest all their loins.
quando apprehenderunt te manu, et confractus es, et lacerasti omnem humerum eorum : et innitentibus eis super te comminutus es, et dissolvisti omnes renes eorum.
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will bring the sword upon thee: and cut off man and beast out of thee.
Proptera haec dicit Dominus Deus : Ecce ego adducam super te gladium, et interficiam de te hominem et jumentum.
9 And the land of Egypt shall become a desert, and a wilderness: and they shall know that I am the Lord: because thou hast said: The river is mine, and I made it.
Et erit terra Aegypti in desertum et in solitudinem : et scient quia ego Dominus, pro eo quod dixeris : Fluvius meus est, et ego feci eum.
10 Therefore, behold I come against thee, and thy rivers: and I will make the land of Egypt utterly desolate, and wasted by the sword, from the tower of Syene, even to the borders of Ethiopia.
Idcirco ecce ego ad te, et ad flumina tua : daboque terram Aegypti in solitudines, gladio dissipatam, a turre Syenes usque ad terminos Aethiopiae.
11 The foot of man shall not pass through it, neither shall the foot of beasts go through it: nor shall it be inhabited during forty years.
Non pertransibit eam pes hominis, neque pes jumenti gradietur in ea, et non habitabitur quadraginta annis.
12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the lands that are desolate, and the cities thereof in the midst of the cities that are destroyed, and they shall be desolate for forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
Daboque terram Aegypti desertam in medio terrarum desertarum, et civitates ejus in medio urbium subversarum, et erunt desolatae quadraginta annis : et dispergam Aegyptios in nationes, et ventilabo eos in terras.
13 For thus saith the Lord God: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the people among whom they had been scattered.
Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus : Post finem quadraginta annorum congregabo Aegyptum de populis in quibus dispersi fuerant.
14 And I will bring back the captivity of Egypt, and will place them in the land of Phatures, in the land of their nativity, and they shall be there a low kingdom:
Et reducam captivitatem Aegypti, et collocabo eos in terra Phathures, in terra nativitatis suae, et erunt ibi in regnum humile.
15 It shall be the lowest among other kingdoms, and it shall no more be exalted over the nations, and I will diminish them that they shall rule no more over the nations.
Inter cetera regna erit humillima, et non elevabitur ultra super nationes, et imminuam eos ne imperent gentibus.
16 And they shall be no more a confidence to the house of Israel, teaching iniquity, that they may flee, and follow them: and they shall know that I am the Lord God.
Neque erunt ultra domui Israel in confidentia, docentes iniquitatem ut fugiant, et sequantur eos : et scient quia ego Dominus Deus.
17 And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first of the month: that the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
Et factum est in vigesimo et septimo anno, in primo, in una mensis : factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
18 Son of man, Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon hath made his army to undergo hard service against Tyre: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: and there hath been no reward given him, nor his army for Tyre, for the service that he rendered me against it.
Fili hominis, Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis servire fecit exercitum suum servitute magna adversum Tyrum : omne caput decalvatum, et omnis humerus depilatus est : et merces non est reddita ei, neque exercitui ejus, de Tyro, pro servitute qua servivit mihi adversus eam.
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will set Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon in the land of Egypt: and he shall take her multitude, and take the booty thereof for a prey, and rifle the spoils thereof: and it shall be wages for his army.
Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus : Ecce ego dabo Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis in terra Aegypti : et accipiet multitudinem ejus, et depraedabitur manubias ejus, et diripiet spolia ejus : et erit merces exercitui illius,
20 And for the service that he hath done me against it: I have given him the land of Egypt, because he hath laboured for me, saith the Lord God.
et operi quo servivit adversus eam : dedi ei terram Aegypti pro eo quod laboraverit mihi, ait Dominus Deus.
21 In that day a horn shall bud forth to the house of Israel, and I will give thee an open mouth in the midst of them: and they shall know that I am the Lord.
In die illo pullulabit cornu domui Israel, et tibi dabo apertum os in medio eorum, et scient quia ego Dominus.
