Egypt rises up like a flood,
And its waters move like the rivers;
And he says, ‘I will go up and cover the earth,
I will destroy the city and its inhabitants.’
Come up, O horses, and rage, O chariots!
And let the mighty men come forth:
[a]The Ethiopians and [b]the Libyans who handle the shield,
And the Lydians (A)who handle and bend the bow.
10 For this is (B)the day of the Lord God of hosts,
A day of vengeance,
That He may avenge Himself on His adversaries.
(C)The sword shall devour;
It shall be [c]satiated and made drunk with their blood;
For the Lord God of hosts (D)has a sacrifice
In the north country by the River Euphrates.
