the land
Ezekiel 29:10-12
therefore, I am against you and your Nile. I will turn the land of Egypt into ruins, a desolate waste from Migdol to Syene, as far as the border of Cush.
No human foot will pass through it, and no animal foot will pass through it. It will be uninhabited for 40 years.
I will make the land of Egypt a desolation among desolate lands, and its cities will be a desolation among ruined cities for 40 years. I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them across the countries.
Ezekiel 30:7
They will be desolate among desolate lands, and their cities will lie among ruined cities.
Ezekiel 30:13-17
This is what the Lord God says: I will destroy the idols and put an end to the false gods in Memphis. There will no longer be a prince from the land of Egypt. So I will instill fear in that land.
I will make Pathros desolate, set fire to Zoan, and execute judgments on Thebes.
I will pour out My wrath on Pelusium, the stronghold of Egypt, and will wipe out the crowds of Thebes.
I will set fire to Egypt; Pelusium will writhe in anguish, Thebes will be breached, and Memphis will face foes in broad daylight.
The young men of On and Pi-beseth will fall by the sword, and those cities will go into captivity.
Jeremiah 43:10-13
and tell them: This is what the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: I will send for My servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and I will place his throne on these stones that I have embedded, and he will pitch his pavilion over them.
He will come and strike down the land of Egypt-- those [destined] for death, to death; those [destined] for captivity, to captivity; and those [destined] for the sword, to the sword.
I will kindle a fire in the temples of Egypt's gods, and he will burn them and take them prisoner. He will clean the land of Egypt as a shepherd picks lice off his garment, and he will leave there unscathed.
He will smash the sacred pillars of the sun temple in the land of Egypt and burn down the temples of the Egyptian gods."
Ezekiel 29:3
Speak [to him] and say: This is what the Lord God says: Look, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great monsterlying in the middle of his Nile, who says: My Nile is my own; I made [it] for myself.
