15 Thou <wa/l 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 thec as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the Hones os'fire,

CHAP. XXIX. 1 The judgement of Pharaoh, t The Jessielion of Egypt, zi Israel shall he reJioriJ.
IN the tenth year, in the tenth mtnth,a the twelfth day of the month, the word os the Lor D came unto me, saying,
i Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
3 Speak, and say, Thus faith the Lord Gon; Behold, 1 am against thec, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that Heth in the midst of his riven, which hath said, My liver it mine own, and I have made it for myself.
4 But I will put hooks in thy jaw, and I will cause tie filh of thy riven to stick unto thy scales, and I will (win* 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 thrtm.fi into the wilderness, thee and all the sift ot thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the opts fields; thou (halt not be brought toge ther, nor gathered: I have given fh« for meat to the toasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.
6 And all the inhabitants of Eg)?r (hall know that I am the Lor P, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel. .
1 7 When they took hold of Kite by wy
hand, thou didst break, and' rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madelt all their loins to be at a stand.
t ff Therefore thus faith theLordGoD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
9 And the land of Kgypt stiall be desolate and waste; and they (hall know that I am. the Lord: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.
i o Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I wilt make the land of Egypt utterly waste an,/ desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.
Ii No foot of man I hall pass through it, nor foot of beast (hall pals through it, neither (hall it be inhabited forty years. ii And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that art desolate, and her cities among the cities that ar* laid waste (hall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
13 Yet thus faith 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 (hall be there a base kingdom.
15 It (hall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither (hall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they (hall no more rule over the nations.
16 And it (hall be no more the confidenceof the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to rememhrance, when they (hall look after them ; but they (hall know that I am the Lord Gon.
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, faying,
tt 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 nuns peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
19 Therefore thus faith the Lord Go D; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he (hall take her multirude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it (hall be the wages for his army.
to I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought for me, (aith the Lord Odd.
Ii f In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Ilrael to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they (hall know that I am the Lord.
CHAP. XXX. 1 The desolation of Egypt, and her helpers. 10 The arm of RabyhnJhall be strengthened to break the arm of Egypt.
TH E word of the Lo R D came again unto me, saying, * Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus faith the Lord Gon; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!
3 For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it (hall be the time of the heathen.
4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt,and great pain (hall beinEthiopia, when the (sain (hall fall in Egypt, and they (hall take away her multitude, and her foundations (hall be broken down.
5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, (hall fall with them by the sword.
6 Thus faith the Lord; They also that uphold Egypt (hall fall, and the pride of her power (hall come down: from the tower of Syene (hall they fall in it by the (Word, faith the Lord God.
7 And they (hall be desolate in the midst of the countries that art desolate, and her cities lhall be in the midit of the cities that are wasted.
8 And they (hall know that I am the Lord, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and -when all her helpers (hall be destroyed.
9 In that day (hall messengers go forth from me in (hips to make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain (hall comeuponthem, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
10 Thus faith the Lord God; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease bv the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.
11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, (hall be brought to destroy the land: and they (hall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the stain.
it 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 Lou D have spoken it. o 1 j Thus
