Ezekiel 32: 1-10

Lamentation over Pharaoh and Egypt

32In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me: 2Mortal, raise a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say to him:
You consider yourself a lion among the nations,
   but you are like a dragon in the seas;
you thrash about in your streams,
   trouble the water with your feet,
   and foul your* streams.
3 Thus says the Lord God:
   In an assembly of many peoples
   I will throw my net over you;
   and I* will haul you up in my dragnet.
4 I will throw you on the ground,
   on the open field I will fling you,
and will cause all the birds of the air to settle on you,
   and I will let the wild animals of the whole earth gorge themselves on you.
5 I will strew your flesh on the mountains,
   and fill the valleys with your carcass.*
6 I will drench the land with your flowing blood
   up to the mountains,
   and the watercourses will be filled with you.
7 When I blot you out, I will cover the heavens,
   and make their stars dark;
I will cover the sun with a cloud,
   and the moon shall not give its light.
8 All the shining lights of the heavens
   I will darken above you,
   and put darkness on your land,

says the Lord God.
9 I will trouble the hearts of many peoples,
   as I carry you captive* among the nations,
   into countries you have not known.
10 I will make many peoples appalled at you;
   their kings shall shudder because of you.
When I brandish my sword before them,
   they shall tremble at every moment
for their lives, each one of them,
   on the day of your downfall.
