"Pick up some large stones and set them in the mortar of the brick pavement that is at the opening of Pharaoh's palace at Tahpanhes. [Do this] in the sight of the Judean men
10
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.
11
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.
12
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.
13
He will smash the sacred pillars of the sun temple in the land of Egypt and burn down the temples of the Egyptian gods."
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 46:13-26
13
[This is] the word the LORD spoke to Jeremiah the prophet about the coming of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to defeat the land of Egypt:
14
Announce it in Egypt, and proclaim it in Migdol! Proclaim it in Memphis and in Tahpanhes! Say: Take positions! Prepare yourself, for the sword devours all around you.
15
Why have your strong ones been swept away? Each has not stood, for the LORD has thrust him down.
16
He continues to stumble. Indeed, each falls over the other. They say: Get up! Let's return to our people and to the land of our birth, away from the sword that oppresses.
17
There they will cry out: Pharaoh king of Egypt was all noise; he let the opportune moment pass.
18
As I live-- [this is] the King's declaration; the LORD of Hosts is His name. He will come like Tabor among the mountains and like Carmel by the sea.
19
Pack your bags for exile, inhabitant of Daughter Egypt! For Memphis will become a desolation, uninhabited ruins.
20
Egypt is a beautiful young cow, but a horsefly from the north is coming against her.
21
Even her mercenaries among her are like stall-fed calves. They too will turn back; together they will flee; they will not take their stand, for the day of their calamity is coming on them, the time of their punishment.
22
Egypt will hiss like a slithering snake, for [the enemy] will come with an army; with axes they will come against her like those who cut trees.
23
They will cut down her forest-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- though it is dense, for they are more numerous than locusts; they cannot be counted.
24
Daughter Egypt will be put to shame, handed over to a northern people.
25
The LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: "I am about to punish Amon, [god] of Thebes, along with Pharaoh, Egypt, her gods, and her kings-- Pharaoh and those trusting in him.
26
I will hand them over to those who want to take their lives-- to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and his officers. But after this, it will be inhabited again as in ancient times." [This is] the LORD's declaration.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 29:1-30
1
In the tenth year, in the tenth [month] on the twelfth [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
2
"Son of man, turn your face toward Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all of Egypt.
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.
4
I will put hooks in your jaws and make the fish of your streams cling to your scales. I will haul you up from the middle of your Nile, and all the fish of your streams will cling to your scales.
5
I will leave you in the desert, you and all the fish of your streams. You will fall on the open ground and will not be taken away or gathered [for burial]. I have given you to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky as food.
6
Then all the inhabitants of Egypt will know that I am the LORD, for they have been a staff [made] of reed to the house of Israel.
7
When Israel grasped you by the hand, you splintered, tearing all their shoulders; when they leaned on you, you shattered and made all their hips unsteady.
8
"Therefore this is what the Lord God says: I am going to bring a sword against you and wipe out man and animal from you.
9
The land of Egypt will be a desolate ruin. Then they will know that I am the LORD. Because you said: The Nile is my own; I made [it],
10
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.
11
No human foot will pass through it, and no animal foot will pass through it. It will be uninhabited for 40 years.
12
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.
13
"For this is what the Lord God says: At the end of 40 years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were dispersed.
14
I will restore the fortunes of Egypt and bring them back to the land of Pathros, the land of their origin. There they will be a lowly kingdom.
15
Egypt will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself over the nations. I will make them so small they cannot rule over the nations.
16
It will never again be an object of trust for the house of Israel, drawing attention to their sin of turning to the Egyptians. Then they will know that I am the Lord God."
17
In the twenty-seventh year in the first [month], on the first [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
18
"Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor strenuously against Tyre. Every head was made bald and every shoulder chafed, but he and his army received no compensation from Tyre for the labor he expended against it.
19
Therefore this is what the Lord God says: I am going to give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who will carry off its wealth, seizing its spoil and taking its plunder. This will be his army's compensation.
20
I have given him the land of Egypt as the pay he labored for, since they worked for Me." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
21
"In that day I will cause a horn to sprout for the house of Israel, and I will enable you to speak out among them. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 31:18
"Who then are you like in glory and greatness among Eden's trees? You also will be brought down to the underworld [to be] with the trees of Eden. You will lie among the uncircumcised with those slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his hordes"-- the declaration of the Lord God.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 32:1-32
1
In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
2
"Son of man, lament for Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him: You compare yourself to a lion of the nations, but you are like a monster in the seas. You thrash about in your rivers, churn up the waters with your feet, and muddy the rivers."
3
This is what the Lord God says: I will spread My net over you with an assembly of many peoples, and they will haul you up in My net.
4
I will abandon you on the land and hurl you on the open field. I will cause all the birds of the sky to settle on you and let the beasts of the entire earth eat their fill of you.
5
I will put your flesh on the mountains and fill the valleys with your carcass.
6
I will drench the land with the flow of your blood, [even] to the mountains; the ravines will be filled with your [gore].
7
When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars. I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light.
8
I will darken all the shining lights in the heavens over you, and will bring darkness on your land. [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
9
I will trouble the hearts of many peoples, when I bring about your destruction among the nations, in countries you do not know.
10
I will cause many nations to be appalled at you, and their kings will shudder with fear because of you when I brandish My sword in front of them. On the day of your downfall each of them will tremble every moment for his life.
11
For this is what the Lord God says: The sword of Babylon's king will come against you!
12
I will make your hordes fall by the swords of warriors, all of them ruthless men from the nations. They will ravage Egypt's pride, and all its hordes will be destroyed.
13
I will slaughter all its cattle that are beside many waters. No human foot will churn them again, and no cattle hooves will disturb them.
14
Then I will let their waters settle and will make their rivers flow like oil. [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
15
When I make the land of Egypt a desolation, so that it is emptied of everything in it, when I strike down all who live there, then they will know that I am the LORD.
16
"This is a lament that will be chanted; the women of the nations will chant it. They will chant it over Egypt and all its hordes." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
17
In the twelfth year, on the fifteenth [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
18
"Son of man, wail over the hordes of Egypt and bring Egypt and the daughters of mighty nations down to the underworld, [to be] with those who descend to the Pit:
19
Whom do you surpass in loveliness? Go down and be laid to rest with the uncircumcised!
20
They will fall among those slain by the sword. A sword is appointed! They drag her and all her hordes away.
21
Warrior leaders will speak from the middle of Sheol about him and his allies: They have come down; the uncircumcised lie slain by the sword.
22
Assyria is there with all her company; her graves are all around her. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword.
23
Her graves are set in the deepest regions of the Pit, and her company is all around her burial place. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword-- they who [once] spread terror in the land of the living.
24
Elam is there with all her hordes around her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword-- they who went down to the underworld uncircumcised, who [once] spread their terror in the land of the living. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit.
25
Among the slain they prepare a resting place for Elam with all her hordes. Her graves are all around her. All of them are uncircumcised, slain by the sword, although their terror was [once] spread in the land of the living. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit. They are placed among the slain.
26
Meshech and Tubalare there, with all their hordes. Their graves are all around them. All of them are uncircumcised, slain by the sword, although their terror was [once] spread in the land of the living.
27
They do not lie down with the fallen warriors of the uncircumcised, who went down to Sheol with their weapons of war, whose swords were placed under their heads. The punishment for their sins rested on their bones, although the terror of [these] warriors was [once] in the land of the living.
28
But you will be shattered and will lie down among the uncircumcised, with those slain by the sword.
29
Edom is there, her kings and all her princes, who, despite their strength, have been placed among those slain by the sword. They lie down with the uncircumcised, with those who descend to the Pit.
30
All the leaders of the north and all the Sidonians are there. They went down in shame with the slain, despite the terror their strength inspired. They lie down uncircumcised with those slain by the sword. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit.
31
Pharaoh will see them and be comforted over all his hordes-- Pharaoh and all his army, slain by the sword. [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
32
For I will spread My terror in the land of the living, so Pharaoh and all his hordes will be laid to rest among the uncircumcised, with those slain by the sword." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.

However, the Chaldean army pursued them and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho, arrested him, and brought him to Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon's king, at Riblah in the land of Hamath. The king passed sentence on him [there].

Then the city was broken into, and all the warriors [fled] by night by way of the gate between the two walls near the king's garden, even though the Chaldeans surrounded the city. As the king made his way along the route to the Arabah,
