1 預言法老必挫敗耶和華論到列國的臨到耶利米先知

2 以下的話是關於埃及,論到埃及法老尼哥的軍隊,這軍隊猶大約西亞的兒子約雅敬第四年,被巴比倫尼布甲尼撒在靠近幼發拉底河的迦基米施擊敗。

3 “要準備好大小的盾牌,踏上戰場。

4 要裝備馬匹,騎上戰馬;站好崗位,戴上頭盔;磨快槍矛,穿上鐵甲。

5 但為甚麼我見他們驚惶,轉身退後呢?他們的勇士被擊敗了,他們急速奔逃,不敢回。四圍都是驚慌。”這是耶和華的宣告。

6 “快跑的跑不掉,勇士也不能逃脫;他們在北方、在幼發拉底河邊,都絆跌仆到。

7 那像尼羅上漲,像江河的翻騰的是誰呢?

8 埃及像尼羅上漲,像江河的翻騰;它:‘我要上漲,淹蓋大地;我要毀滅城和城裡的居民。’

9 馬匹啊,上前吧!戰車啊,狂奔吧!勇士啊,就是緊握盾牌的古實人和弗人,以及拉的呂底亞人哪,上陣吧!

10 那是萬軍之耶和華的日子,是報仇的日子,他要向自己的敵人報仇;刀吞噬、飽餐他們的肉,痛飲他們的血。因為在北方,靠近幼發拉底河之地,萬軍之耶和華要屠宰敵人像殺祭牲一樣。

11 埃及的人民哪,上基列去取乳香吧!你雖多用藥物都是無效,你必不得醫治。

12 列國見你的羞恥,大地滿了你的哀號;因為勇士和勇士相碰,雙方一同仆倒。”

13 預言巴比倫攻打埃及以下是耶和華耶利米先知,論到巴比倫尼布甲尼撒要攻打埃及地。

14 “你們要在埃及傳揚,在密奪宣告,在挪弗和答比匿宣揚,:‘要站好崗位,作好準備,因為刀要吞滅你周圍的人!’

15 你的壯士為甚麼俯伏?他們站立不住(“你的壯士為甚麼俯伏?他們站立不住”或可參照《七十士譯本》譯作“為甚麼亞比士神逃跑?你的牛神站立不住”),是因耶和華把他們推倒了。

16 他使眾人絆跌,倒在一起;他們:‘起來我們要回到我們本族,和我們出生之地那裡去,躲避欺壓者的刀。’

17 他們在那裡喊:‘埃及法老不過是喧嘩的聲音;他已失去機會。’”

18 名叫萬軍之耶和華的宣告:“我指著我的永生起誓,必有一位要,像群中的他泊,像邊的迦密一樣。

19 埃及的人民哪!要為自己預備被擄時所需的器物;因為挪弗必成為荒場,必被燒毀,無人居住

20 埃及是一頭肥美的母牛,但北方的牛蟲已經到牠身上(“牠身上”有古卷作“到了”)。

21 它中間的雇傭兵像棚裡的肥犢,他們一同轉身逃跑,沒有一個站立得住;因為他們遭災的日子、受懲罰的時候,已經臨到他們身上。

22 它逃走的聲音像行的響聲,因為敵人要成隊而,像砍伐樹木的,拿著斧子前攻擊它。

23 他們要砍伐它的森林。這是耶和華的宣告;它的森林雖然茂密難以通過,但敵人比蝗蟲還多,無法數算。

24 埃及的人民必蒙羞受辱,必交在北方的民族的中。”

25 萬軍之耶和華以色列的:“看哪!我必懲罰挪的亞捫法老和那些倚靠法老的人。

26 我必把他們交在那些尋索他們性命的人的裡,就是交在巴比倫尼布甲尼撒和他的臣僕的中。但以,埃及必再有人居住,像從前一樣。”這是耶和華的宣告。

27 神必拯他的子民“至於你,我的僕人雅各啊!你不要懼怕。以色列啊!你不要驚慌。因為我必從遠方拯回來,從被擄之地必拯你的後裔脫離他們被擄之地。雅各必歸回,得享平靜安逸,沒有人可以使他害怕

28 我的僕人雅各啊!你不要懼怕。因為我與你同在;我要消滅我趕逐你去的列國。卻必不消滅你。我要按公正懲治你,決不能免你受罰。”這是耶和華的宣告。
