It is Egypt, rising with a roar
like a raging river
    and saying,
“I’ll flood the earth,
destroying cities,
and killing
    everyone in them.”

Go ahead, Egypt.
Tell your chariots and cavalry
    to attack and fight hard.
Order your troops to march out,
with Ethiopians[a] and Libyans
    carrying shields,
and the Lydians[b] armed with bows
    and arrows.

10 But the Lord All-Powerful
    will win this battle
and take revenge
    on his enemies.
His sword will eat them
and drink their blood
    until it is full.
They will be killed in the north
near the Euphrates River,
    as a sacrifice to the Lord.
