“1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, on the twelfth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, let your face be turned against Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and be a prophet against him and against all Egypt: 3 Say to them, These are the words of the Lord: See, I am against you, Pharaoh, king of Egypt, the great river-beast stretched out among his Nile streams, who has said, The Nile is mine, and I have made it for myself. 4 And I will put hooks in your mouth, and the fish of your streams will be hanging from your skin; and I will make you come up out of your streams, with all the fish of your streams hanging from your skin. 5 And I will let you be in the waste land, you and all the fish of your streams: you will go down on the face of the land; you will not be taken up or put to rest in the earth; I have given you for food to the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven. 6 And it will be clear to all the people of Egypt that I am the Lord, because you have been a false support to the children of Israel. 7 When they took a grip of you in their hands, you were crushed so that their arms were broken: and when they put their weight on you for support, you were broken and all their muscles gave way. 8 For this cause the Lord has said: See, I am sending a sword on you, cutting off from you man and beast. 9 And the land of Egypt will be an unpeopled waste; and they will be certain that I am the Lord: because he has said, The Nile is mine, and I made it. 10 See, then, I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt an unpeopled waste, from Migdol to Syene, even as far as the edge of Ethiopia. 11 No foot of man will go through it and no foot of beast, and it will be unpeopled for forty years. 12 I will make the land of Egypt a waste among the countries which are made waste, and her towns will be unpeopled among the towns which have been made waste, for forty years: and I will send the Egyptians in flight among the nations and wandering through the countries. 13 For this is what the Lord has said: At the end of forty years I will get the Egyptians together from the peoples where they have gone in flight: 14 I will let the fate of Egypt be changed, and will make them come back into the land of Pathros, into the land from which they came; and there they will be an unimportant kingdom. 15 It will be the lowest of the kingdoms, and never again will it be lifted up over the nations: I will make them small, so that they may not have rule over the nations. 16 And Egypt will no longer be the hope of the children of Israel, causing sin to come to mind when their eyes are turned to them: and they will be certain that I am the Lord. 17 Now in the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, made his army do hard work against Tyre, and the hair came off every head and every arm was rubbed smooth: but he and his army got no payment out of Tyre for the hard work which he had done against it. 19 For this cause the Lord has said: See, I am giving the land of Egypt to Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon: he will take away her wealth, and take her goods by force and everything which is there; and this will be the payment for his army. 20 I have given him the land of Egypt as the reward for his hard work, because they were working for me, says the Lord. 21 In that day I will make a horn put out buds for the children of Israel, and I will let your words come freely among them, and they will be certain that I am the Lord. 1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying, 2 Son of man, be a prophet, and say, These are the words of the Lord: Give a cry, Aha, for the day! 3 For the day is near, the day of the Lord is near, a day of cloud; it will be the time of the nations. 4 And a sword will come on Egypt, and cruel pain will be in Ethiopia, when they are falling by the sword in Egypt; and they will take away her wealth and her bases will be broken down. 5 Ethiopia and Put and Lud and all the mixed people and Libya and the children of the land of the Cherethites will all be put to death with them by the sword. 6 This is what the Lord has said: The supporters of Egypt will have a fall, and the pride of her power will come down: from Migdol to Syene they will be put to the sword in it, says the Lord. 7 And she will be made waste among the countries which have been made waste, and her towns will be among the towns which are unpeopled. 8 And they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I have put a fire in Egypt and all her helpers are broken. 9 In that day men will go out quickly to take the news, causing fear in untroubled Ethiopia; and bitter pain will come on them as in the day of Egypt; for see, it is coming. 10 This is what the Lord has said: I will put an end to great numbers of the people of Egypt by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon. 11 He and the people with him, causing fear among the nations, will be sent for the destruction of the land; their swords will be let loose against Egypt and the land will be full of dead. 12 And I will make the Nile streams dry, and will give the land into the hands of evil men, causing the land and everything in it to be wasted by the hands of men from a strange country: I the Lord have said it. 13 This is what the Lord has said: In addition to this, I will give up the images to destruction and put an end to the false gods in Noph; never again will there be a ruler in the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt. 14 And I will make Pathros a waste, and put a fire in Zoan, and send my punishments on No. 15 I will let loose my wrath on Sin, the strong place of Egypt, cutting off the mass of the people of No. 16 And I will put a fire in Egypt; Syene will be twisting in pain, and No will be broken into, as by the onrush of waters. 17 The young men of On and Pi-beseth will be put to the sword: and these towns will be taken away prisoners. 18 And at Tehaphnehes the day will become dark, when the yoke of Egypt is broken there, and the pride of her power comes to an end: as for her, she will be covered with a cloud, and her daughters will be taken away prisoners. 19 And I will send my punishments on Egypt: and they will be certain that I am the Lord. 20 Now in the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 21 Son of man, the arm of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, has been broken by me, and no band has been put round it to make it well, no band has been twisted round it to make it strong for gripping the sword. 22 For this cause the Lord has said: See, I am against Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and by me his strong arm will be broken; and I will make the sword go out of his hand. 23 And I will send the Egyptians in flight among the nations and wandering through the countries. 24 And I will make the arms of the king of Babylon strong, and will put my sword in his hand: but Pharaoh’s arms will be broken, and he will give cries of pain before him like the cries of a man wounded to death. 25 And I will make the arms of the king of Babylon strong, and the arms of Pharaoh will be hanging down; and they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and it is stretched out against the land of Egypt. 26 And I will send the Egyptians in flight among the nations and wandering through the countries; and they will be certain that I am the Lord.”

“32 What more am I to say? For there would not be time to give the stories of Gideon, Barak, Samson, and Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets: 33 Who through faith overcame kingdoms, did righteousness, got their reward, kept the mouths of lions shut, 34 Put out the power of fire, got safely away from the edge of the sword, were made strong when they had been feeble, became full of power in war, and put to flight the armies of the nations. 35 Women had their dead given back to them living; others let themselves be cruelly attacked, having no desire to go free, so that they might have a better life to come; 36 And others were tested by being laughed at or by blows, and even with chains and prisons: 37 They were stoned, they were cut up with knives, they were tested, they were put to death with the sword, they went about in sheepskins and in goatskins; being poor and in pain and cruelly attacked, 38 Wandering in waste places and in mountains and in holes in the rocks; for whom the world was not good enough. 39 And not one of these got the good things of the agreement, though they all had a good record through faith, 40 Because God had kept some better thing for us, so that it was not possible for them to become complete without us. 1 For this reason, as we are circled by so great a cloud of witnesses, putting off every weight, and the sin into which we come so readily, let us keep on running in the way which is marked out for us, 2 Having our eyes fixed on Jesus, the guide and end of our faith, who went through the pains of the cross, not caring for the shame, because of the joy which was before him, and who has now taken his place at the right hand of God’s seat of power. 3 Give thought to him who has undergone so much of the hate of sinners against himself, so that you may not be tired and feeble of purpose. 4 Till now you have not given your blood in your fight against sin: 5 And you have not kept in mind the word which says to you as to sons, My son, do not make little of the Lord’s punishment, and do not give up hope when you are judged by him; 6 For the Lord sends punishment on his loved ones; everyone whom he takes as his son has experience of his rod. 7 It is for your training that you undergo these things; God is acting to you as a father does to his sons; for what son does not have punishment from his father? 8 But if you have not that punishment of which we all have our part, then you are not true sons, but children of shame. 9 And again, if the fathers of our flesh gave us punishment and had our respect, how much more will we be under the authority of the Father of spirits, and have life? 10 For they truly gave us punishment for a short time, as it seemed good to them; but he does it for our profit, so that we may become holy as he is. 11 At the time all punishment seems to be pain and not joy: but after, those who have been trained by it get from it the peace-giving fruit of righteousness. 12 For this cause let the hands which are hanging down be lifted up, and let the feeble knees be made strong, 13 And make straight roads for your feet, so that the feeble may not be turned out of the way, but may be made strong.”

Top Psalms 112:1-10, BBE.

“1 Let the Lord be praised. Happy is the man who gives honour to the Lord, and has great delight in his laws. 2 His seed will be strong on the earth; blessings will be on the generation of the upright. 3 A store of wealth will be in his house, and his righteousness will be for ever. 4 For the upright there is a light shining in the dark; he is full of grace and pity. 5 All is well for the man who is kind and gives freely to others; he will make good his cause when he is judged. 6 He will not ever be moved; the memory of the upright will be living for ever. 7 He will have no fear of evil news; his heart is fixed, for his hope is in the Lord. 8 His heart is resting safely, he will have no fear, till he sees trouble come on his haters. 9 He has given with open hands to the poor; his righteousness is for ever; his horn will be lifted up with honour. 10 The sinner will see it with grief; he will be wasted away with envy; the desire of the evil-doers will come to nothing.”
