1 预言法老必挫败

2 以下的话是关于埃及,论到埃及法老尼哥的军队,这军队犹大约西亚的儿子约雅敬第四年,被巴比伦尼布甲尼撒在靠近幼发拉底河的迦基米施击败。

3 “要准备好大小的盾牌,踏上战场。

4 要装备马匹,骑上战马;站好岗位,戴上头盔;磨快枪矛,穿上铁甲。

5 但为什么我见他们惊惶,转身退后呢?他们的勇士被击败了,他们急速奔逃,不敢回。四围都是惊慌。”这是耶和华的宣告。

6 “快跑的跑不掉,勇士也不能逃脱;他们在北方、在幼发拉底河边,都绊跌仆到。

7 那像尼罗上涨,像江河的翻腾的是谁呢?

8 埃及像尼罗上涨,像江河的翻腾;它:‘我要上涨,淹盖大地;我要毁灭城和城里的居民。’

9 马匹啊,上前吧!战车啊,狂奔吧!勇士啊,就是紧握盾牌的古实人和弗人,以及拉的吕底亚人哪,上阵吧!

10 那是万军之耶和华的日子,是报仇的日子,他要向自己的敌人报仇;刀吞噬、饱餐他们的肉,痛饮他们的血。因为在北方,靠近幼发拉底河之地,万军之耶和华要屠宰敌人像杀祭牲一样。

11 埃及的人民哪,上基列去取乳香吧!你虽多用药物都是无效,你必不得医治。

12 列国见你的羞耻,大地满了你的哀号;因为勇士和勇士相碰,双方一同仆倒。”

13 预言巴比伦攻打埃及以下是耶和华耶利米先知,论到巴比伦尼布甲尼撒要攻打埃及地。

14 “你们要在埃及传扬,在密夺宣告,在挪弗和答比匿宣扬,:‘要站好岗位,作好准备,因为刀要吞灭你周围的人!’

15 你的壮士为什么俯伏?他们站立不住(“你的壮士为什么俯伏?他们站立不住”或可参照《七十士译本》译作“为什么亚比士神逃跑?你的牛神站立不住”),是因耶和华把他们推倒了。

16 他使众人绊跌,倒在一起;他们:‘起来我们要回到我们本族,和我们出生之地那里去,躲避欺压者的刀。’

17 他们在那里喊:‘埃及法老不过是喧哗的声音;他已失去机会。’”

18 名叫万军之耶和华的宣告:“我指着我的永生起誓,必有一位要,像群中的他泊,像边的迦密一样。

19 埃及的人民哪!要为自己预备被掳时所需的器物;因为挪弗必成为荒场,必被烧毁,无人居住

20 埃及是一头肥美的母牛,但北方的牛虫已经到它身上(“它身上”有古卷作“到了”)。

21 它中间的雇佣兵像棚里的肥犊,他们一同转身逃跑,没有一个站立得住;因为他们遭灾的日子、受惩罚的时候,已经临到他们身上。

22 它逃走的声音像行的响声,因为敌人要成队而,像砍伐树木的,拿着斧子前攻击它。

23 他们要砍伐它的森林。这是耶和华的宣告;它的森林虽然茂密难以通过,但敌人比蝗虫还多,无法数算。

24 埃及的人民必蒙羞受辱,必交在北方的民族的中。”

25 万军之耶和华以色列的:“看哪!我必惩罚挪的亚扪法老和那些倚靠法老的人。

26 我必把他们交在那些寻索他们性命的人的里,就是交在巴比伦尼布甲尼撒和他的臣仆的中。但以,埃及必再有人居住,像从前一样。”这是耶和华的宣告。

27 神必拯他的子民“至于你,我的仆人雅各啊!你不要惧怕。以色列啊!你不要惊慌。因为我必从远方拯回来,从被掳之地必拯你的后裔脱离他们被掳之地。雅各必归回,得享平静安逸,没有人可以使他害怕

28 我的仆人雅各啊!你不要惧怕。因为我与你同在;我要消灭我赶逐你去的列国。却必不消灭你。我要按公正惩治你,决不能免你受罚。”这是耶和华的宣告。
