17 Now in the atwenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first of the month, the word of the Lord came to me saying,

18 “Son of man, aNebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor 1hard against Tyre; every head was made bbald and every shoulder was rubbed bare. But he and his army had no wages from Tyre for the labor that he had 2performed against it.”

19 Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I awill give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. And he will carry off her 1bwealth and capture her spoil and seize her plunder; and it will be wages for his army.

20 “I have given him the land of Egypt for his labor which he 1aperformed, because they acted for Me,” declares the Lord God.

21 “On that day I will make a ahorn sprout for the house of Israel, and I will 1bopen your mouth in their midst. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”
