Egypt is like the rising Nile River,
    like a river quickly overflowing its banks.
    Egypt says, ‘I will rise; I will cover the earth.
    I will destroy cities and the people in them.’
Go into battle, you horsemen.
    Drive wildly, you chariot drivers.
    March into battle, you warriors,
    you warriors from Sudan and Put who carry shields,
    you warriors from Lydia who use bows and arrows.
10 That day belongs to Adonay Yahweh Tsebaoth.
    It is a day of vengeance when he will take revenge on his enemies.
        His sword will devour until it has had enough,
            and it will drink their blood until it’s full.
        Adonay Yahweh Tsebaoth will offer them as sacrifices
            in the north by the Euphrates River.
