*And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, atake up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like ba young lion of the nations, and thou art as a ||whale in cthe seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and dtroubledst the waters with thy feet, and efouledst their rivers. Thus saith the Lord God; I will therefore eespread out my net over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my fnet. Then gwill I leave thee upon the land, gI will cast thee forth upon the open field, and hwill cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee. And I will lay thy flesh iupon the mountains, and fill ithe valleys with thy height. I will also water with thy blood ||the land wherein thou swimmest, even ito the mountains; and ithe rivers shall be full of thee. And when I shall ||put thee out, kI will cover the heaven, and lmake the stars thereof dark; kI will cover the sun with a cloud, and kthe moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I lmake dark over thee, and nset darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God. I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy odestruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known. 10 Yea, I will pmake many people amazed at thee, and ptheir kings shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my sword before them; and qthey shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, rin the day of thy fall.

11 For thus saith the Lord God; sThe sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee. 12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause tthy multitude to fall, uthe terrible of the nations, all of them: and vthey shall spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all tthe multitude thereof shall be destroyed. 13 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters; wneither shall the foot of man dtrouble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts dtrouble them. 14 Then will I xmake their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run like oil, saith the Lord God. 15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and ythe country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then zshall they know that I am the Lord. 16 This is athe lamentation wherewith bthey shall lament her: bbthe daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament for her, even for Egypt, and for all cher multitude, saith the Lord God.

17 *It came to pass also in the twelfth year, din the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 18 Son of man, wail for cthe multitude of Egypt, and ecast them down, even her, and bbthe daughters of the famous nations, efunto the nether parts of the earth, efwith them that go down into the pit. 19 gWhom dost thou pass in beauty? hgo down, and ibe thou laid with jthe uncircumcised. 20 They shall fall in the midst of kthem that are slain by the sword: ||she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all cher multitudes. 21 lThe strong among the mighty mshall speak to him out of the midst of hell with nthem that help him: hrthey are gone down, they lie juncircumcised, kslain by the sword. 22 oAsshur is there and all her company: oohis graves are about him: all of them kslain, fallen by the sword: 23 Whose graves are set in pthe sides of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them kslain, fallen by the sword, qwhich caused ||terror rin the land of the living. 24 oThere is sElam and all cher multitude round about her grave, all of them kslain, fallen by the sword, hwhich are gone down juncircumcised finto the nether parts of the earth, qwhich caused their terror rin the land of the living; yet thave they borne their shame fwith them that go down to the pit. 25 They have set her ua bed in the midst of the slain with all cher multitude: ooher graves are round about him: all of them juncircumcised, kslain by the sword: though qtheir terror was caused rin the land of the living, yet thave they borne their shame fwith them that go down to the pit: he is put in the midst of them that be slain. 26 oThere is vMeshech, vTubal, and all cher multitude: ooher graves are round about him: all of them juncircumcised, kslain by the sword, though qthey caused their terror rin the land of the living. 27 And wthey shall not lie with xthe mighty that are fallen of jthe uncircumcised, ywhich are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and ythey have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were qthe terror of xthe mighty rin the land of the living. 28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of jthe uncircumcised, and iwshalt lie with kthem that are slain with the sword. 29 oThere is zEdom, her kings, and all her princes, which with their might are laid by kthem that were slain by the sword: ithey shall lie with jthe uncircumcised, and fwith them that go down to the pit. 30 oThere be athe princes of bthe north, all of them, and all cthe Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their terror they are ashamed of their might; and ithey lie juncircumcised kwith them that be slain by the sword, and tbear their shame fwith them that go down to the pit. 31 Pharaoh shall see them, and dshall be comforted over all ehis multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army kslain by the sword, saith the Lord God. 32 For qI have caused my terror rin the land of the living: and ihe shall be laid in the midst of jthe uncircumcised with kthem that are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all ehis multitude, saith the Lord God.

33 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to athe children of thy people, and say unto them, bWhen I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their cwatchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and dwarn the people; Then whosoever heareth ethe sound of the trumpet, and dtaketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, fhis blood shall be upon his own head. He heard ethe sound of the trumpet, and dtook not warning; fhis blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if cthe watchman see the sword come, and eblow not the trumpet, and the people dbe not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, ghe is taken away in his iniquity; but hhis blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. iSo thou, O son of man, I have kset thee ca watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and dwarn them from me. hWhen I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak dto warn the wicked from his way, ghthat wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but hhis blood will I require at thine hand. lNevertheless, if thou dwarn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, ghe shall die in his iniquity; lmbut thou hast delivered thy soul.

10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and nwe pine away in them, ohow should we then live? 11 Say unto them, pAs I live, saith the Lord God, qI have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for rwhy will ye die, O house of Israel? 12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto athe children of thy people, sThe righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, the shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; sneither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. 13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; sif he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. 14 Again, uwhen I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; vif he turn from his sin, and vdo that which is lawful and right; 15 If the wicked wrestore the pledge, xgive again that he had robbed, walk in ythe statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. 16 zNone of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: vhe hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live. 17 aYet bthe children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. 18 cWhen the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. 19 dBut if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and vdo that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby. 20 aYet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, eI will judge you every one after his ways.

21 *And it came to pass hin the twelfth year fof our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, gthat one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, hThe city is smitten. 22 Now ithe hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening, afore he that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and kmy mouth was opened, and kI was no more dumb. 23 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 24 Son of man, they that inhabit those lwastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was mone, and he inherited the land: but nwe are many; the land is given us for inheritance. 25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; oYe eat with the blood, and plift up your eyes toward your idols, and qshed blood: and shall ye possess the land? 26 rYe stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and psye defile every one his
