17 [a]They cried there, ‘Pharaoh king of Egypt is but (A)a big noise;
He has let the appointed time pass by!’
18 “As I live,” declares the (B)King
Whose name is the Lord of hosts,
“Surely one shall come who looms up like (C)Tabor among the mountains,
Or like (D)Carmel by the sea.
19 “Make your baggage ready for (E)exile,
O (F)daughter dwelling in Egypt,
For (G)Memphis will become a desolation;
It will even be burned down and [b]bereft of inhabitants.
