Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Concerning Egypt: And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was on Jeremiah the Prophet which was prophesied concerning the nations

2And about the Egyptians and about the army of Pharaoh, the Crippled King of Egypt, which was encamped on the river Euphrates at Karkemush, which Nebukadnetsar King of Babel killed in fourth year of Yoiqim, son of Yoshiah, King of Judea, saying:

3Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: take a supply of arms and a shield and approach the battle

4Harness the horses, cause the horsemen to mount. Put on helmets! Polish the spears! Put on breastplates!

5Because I have seen that they are defeated and are turning their back, and their mighty men are beaten and have fled, and they have not returned, because of those who were surrounding them from their surroundings, says LORD JEHOVAH

6He who is fast shall not escape, and he who is mighty in power shall not save himself. They stumbled on the side of the river Euphrates, and they all fell

7Who is this who came up like a river, and its waters are raging like rivers?

8The King of Egypt came up as a river, and his waters are enraged like rivers, and he said: “I shall ascend and I shall cover the land and I shall destroy the city and its inhabitants

9Mount the horses, be glorious in chariots! Go out, each man, the Kushites and the Putites seizing shields, and the Ludites who know shooting with a bow!”

10And that day will be for LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts a day of vengeance that he pays to his enemies, and the sword will devour and it shall be filled and shall be drunk with their blood, because LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts shall make slaughter in the north land on the river Euphrates

11Go up to Gelad and take balm, virgin daughter of Egypt. You have multiplied remedies for nothing, and it was not a benefit for you

12The nations have heard your shame, and your wailing has filled the land, for man attacked man, and both fell by the sword

13The word that LORD JEHOVAH spoke to Jeremiah the Prophet: "Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel, shall come and he will destroy the land of Egypt

14Show in Egypt and make heard in Magedol, and make heard in Mephis and in Takhpis, say: ‘Be ready and be prepared, because the sword has consumed around you

15Why did your mighty ones stumble and fall and did not get up? Because LORD JEHOVAH has cast them down!

16Their multitude stumbled, also a man falls on his neighbor, and they said: ‘Arise! We shall return to our nation and to the land where we were born, from before the sword that makes wretched

17And they called there the name of Pharaoh, “The Cripple King of Egypt” “The Trouble Maker” and “Passer of Time”

18I am Living, says LORD JEHOVAH, King of Hosts, his name, but Pharaoh shall fall as the breaking of a mountain and as Karmela within the sea

19Make for yourself a garment of captivity, virgin daughter of Egypt, because Mephis will be a wilderness and shall be desolate without inhabitant

20Egypt, a beautiful speckled heifer, an army from the North came upon her

21Her hired men within her were as fattened calves, also they turned and fled as one, and they did not stand, because the day of their breaking came upon them, the time of their sentence

22The sound of the army was like a serpent that slithers, because they shall depart with the army, and with axes they shall come against her like tree cutters

23Cut down her forests, says LORD JEHOVAH, because there is no end to them, for they are more than the locusts and are without number

24The daughter of Egypt is ashamed and she is delivered into the hand of the people of the North

25LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts God of Israel says: “Behold, I give command against Amon of the waters and against Pharaoh and against Egypt and against its gods and against its armies and against its King and against Pharaoh and against all who trust upon him 26And I shall deliver them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those who seek their lives, into the hand of Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel, and into the hand of his Servants, and after that she shall be released, like the days from former time, says LORD JEHOVAH

27And you shall not fear, my Servant Yaqob, says LORD JEHOVAH, and you shall not be defeated, Israel. Behold, I save you from afar off, and your seed from the land of their captivity, and Yaqob shall settle and shall be quiet, and he shall settle down and shall rest, and there is no one who will harm him

28And you shall not be afraid, my Servant Yaqob, says LORD JEHOVAH, because I am with you, because I shall make an end in all the nations where I scattered you, and I shall not end you, and I shall discipline you in judgment, and I certainly shall not declare you innocent!
