Egypt rises up like the Nile River.
    It is Egypt that comes like that strong, fast river.
Egypt says, ‘I will rise up and cover the earth.
    I will destroy cities and the people in them!’
Horsemen, charge into battle!
    Chariot drivers, drive hard!
March on, brave soldiers—
    soldiers from Cush and Put who carry shields.
    March on, soldiers from Lydia who use bows.

10 “But that day belongs to the Master, the Lord of heaven’s armies.
    At that time he will give those people the punishment they deserve.
The sword will kill until it is finished.
    The sword will kill until it satisfies its thirst for blood.
This is because the Master, the Lord of heaven’s armies, will offer a sacrifice.
    That sacrifice is Egypt’s army in the land of the north, by the Euphrates River.
