Egypt rises up like the Nile,
    and his waters surge about like the rivers.
And he has said, I will go up and will cover the land.
    I will surely destroy the city and its inhabitants.
Come up, O horses,
    and rage, O chariots!
And let the mighty men come forth:
    the Ethiopians and the Libyans who handle the shield,
    and the Lydians who handle and bend the bow.
10 For this is the day of the Lord God of Hosts,
    a day of vengeance, so that He may avenge Himself of His adversaries.
And the sword will devour;
    and it will be satiated and made drunk with their blood;
for the Lord God of Hosts has a slaughter
    in the north country by the River Euphrates.
