Victory for Babylon
20 In the aeleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh of the month, the word of the Lord came to me saying,
21 “Son of man, I have abroken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, behold, it has not been bbound up 1for healing 2or wrapped with a bandage, that it may be strong to hold the sword.
22 “Therefore thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I am aagainst Pharaoh king of Egypt and will break his arms, both the strong and the bbroken; and I will make the sword cfall from his hand.
23 ‘I will ascatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands.
24 ‘For I will astrengthen the arms of the king of Babylon and put bMy sword in his hand; and I will break the arms of Pharaoh, so that he will groan before him with the groanings of a wounded man.
25 ‘Thus I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh will fall. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he astretches it out against the land of Egypt.
26 ‘When I scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands, then they will know that I am the Lord.’ ”
