New Century Version
17 In their homelands those soldiers called out,
‘The king of Egypt is only a lot of noise.
He missed his chance for glory!’”
18 The King’s name is the Lord All-Powerful.
He says, “As surely as I live,
a powerful leader will come.
He will be like Mount Tabor among the mountains,
like Mount Carmel by the sea.
19 People of Egypt, pack your things
to be taken away as captives,
because Memphis will be destroyed.
It will be a ruin, and no one will live there.
New International Version
18 “As surely as I live,” declares the King,(C)
whose name is the Lord Almighty,
“one will come who is like Tabor(D) among the mountains,
like Carmel(E) by the sea.
19 Pack your belongings for exile,(F)
you who live in Egypt,
for Memphis(G) will be laid waste(H)
and lie in ruins without inhabitant.
