17 Give Pharaoh, king of Egypt, the name
    “Braggart-missed-his-chance.”[a]
18 As I live, says the King
    whose name is Lord of hosts,
Like Tabor above mountains,
    like Carmel[b] above the sea, he comes.
19 Pack your bags for exile,
    enthroned daughter Egypt;
Memphis shall become a wasteland,
    an empty ruin.

Footnotes

  1. 46:17 “Braggart-missed-his-chance”: the Hebrew phrase may contain a pun on the Pharaoh’s name or royal title.
  2. 46:18 Tabor…Carmel: mountains in Palestine that seem to tower over their surroundings as Nebuchadnezzar towers over the nations in his path as he makes his way toward Egypt.
