2 FOR EGYPT, AGAINST THE POWER OF PHARAO NECHAO KING OF EGYPT, who was by the river Euphrates in Charmis, whom Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Joakim king of Juda. 3 Take up arms and spears, and draw nigh to battle; 4 and harness the horses: mount, ye horsemen, and stand ready in your helmets; advance the spears, and put on your breast-plates. 5 Why do they fear, and turn back? even because their mighty men shall be slain: they have utterly fled, and being hemmed in they have not rallied, saith the Lord. 6 Let not the swift flee, and let not the mighty man escape to the north: the forces at Euphrates are become feeble, and they have fallen. 7 Who is this that shall come up as a river, and as rivers roll their waves? 8 The waters of Egypt shall come up like a river: and he said, I will go up, and will cover the earth, and will destroy the dwellers in it. 9 Mount ye the horses, prepare the chariots; go forth, ye warriors of the Ethiopians, and Libyans armed with shields; and mount, ye Lydians, bend the bow. 10 And that day shall be to the Lord our God a day of vengeance, to take vengeance on his enemies: and the sword of the Lord shall devour, and be glutted, and be drunken with their blood: for the Lord has a sacrifice from the land of the north at the river Euphrates. 11 Go up to Galaad, and take balm for the virgin daughter of Egypt: in vain hast thou multiplied thy medicines; there is no help in thee. 12 The nations have heard thy voice, and the land has been filled with thy cry: for the warriors have fainted fighting one against another, and both are fallen together. 13 THE WORDS WHICH THE LORD SPOKE by Jeremias, concerning the coming of the king of Babylon to smite the land of Egypt. 14 Proclaim it at Magdol, and declare it at Memphis: say ye, Stand up, and prepare; for the sword has devoured thy yew-tree. 15 Wherefore has Apis fled from thee? thy choice calf has not remained; for the Lord has utterly weakened him. 16 And thy multitude has fainted and fallen; and each one said to his neighbour, Let us arise, and return into our country to our people, from the Grecian sword. 17 Call ye the name of Pharao Nechao king of Egypt, Saon esbeie moed. 18 As I live, saith the Lord God, he shall come as Itabyrion among the mountains, and as Carmel that is on the sea. 19 O daughter of Egypt dwelling at home, prepare thee stuff for removing: for Memphis shall be utterly desolate, and shall be called Woe, because there are no inhabitants in it. 20 Egypt is a fair heifer, but destruction from the north is come upon her. 21 Also her hired soldiers in the midst of her are as fatted calves fed in her; for they also have turned, and fled with one accord: they stood not, for the day of destruction was come upon them, and the time of their retribution. 22 Their voice is as that of a hissing serpent, for they go upon the sand; they shall come upon Egypt with axes, as men that cut wood. 23 They shall cut down her forest, saith the Lord, for their number cannot at all be conjectured, for it exceeds the locust in multitude, and they are innumerable. 24 The daughter of Egypt is confounded; she is delivered into the hands of a people from the north. 25 Behold, I will avenge Ammon her son upon Pharao, and upon them that trust in him. 26 27 But fear not thou, my servant Jacob, neither be thou alarmed, Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be at ease, and sleep, and there shall be no one to trouble him. 28 Fear not thou, my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; for I am with thee: she that was without fear and in luxury, has been delivered up: for I will make a full end of every nation among whom I have thrust thee forth; but I will not cause thee to fail: yet will I chastise thee in the way of judgment, and will not hold thee entirely guiltless.

ΜΣΤ΄ .) 2 Τῌ Αἰγύπτῳ ἐπὶ δύναμιν Φαραὼ Νεχαὼ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου, ὃς ἦν ἐπὶ τῷ ποταμῷ Εὐφράτῃ ἐν Χαρχαμείς, ὃν ἐπάταξε Ναβουχοδονόσορ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος, ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ τετάρτῳ ᾿Ιωακεὶμ βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα. - 3 ᾿Αναλάβετε ὅπλα καὶ ἀσπίδας καὶ προσαγάγετε εἰς πόλεμον· 4 ἐπισάξατε τοὺς ἵππους, ἐπίβητε, οἱ ἱππεῖς, καὶ κατάστητε ἐν ταῖς περικεφαλαίαις ὑμῶν· προβάλετε τά δόρατα καὶ ἐνδύσασθε τοὺς θώρακας ὑμῶν. 5 τί ὅτι αὐτοὶ πτοοῦνται καὶ ἀποχωροῦσιν εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω; διότι οἱ ἰσχυροὶ αὐτῶν κοπήσονται. φυγῇ ἔφυγον καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψαν περιεχόμενοι κυκλόθεν, λέγει Κύριος. 6 μὴ φευγέτω ὁ κοῦφος, καὶ μὴ ἀνασωζέσθω ὁ ἰσχυρός· ἐπὶ βορρᾶν τὰ παρὰ τὸν Εὐφράτην ἠσθένησαν, πεπτώκασι. 7 τίς οὗτος ὡς ποταμὸς ἀναβήσεται καὶ ὡς ποταμοὶ κυμαίνουσιν ὕδωρ; 8 ὕδατα Αἰγύπτου ὡσεὶ ποταμὸς ἀναβήσεται καὶ εἶπεν· ἀναβήσομαι καὶ κατακαλύψω τὴν γῆν καὶ ἀπολῶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν αὐτῇ. 9 ἐπίβητε ἐπὶ τοὺς ἵππους, παρασκευάσατε τὰ ἅρματα, ἐξέλθατε, οἱ μαχηταὶ Αἰθιόπων καὶ Λίβυες καθωπλισμένοι ὅπλοις· καὶ Λυδοί, ἀνάβητε, ἐντείνατε τόξον. 10 καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα ἐκείνη Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν ἡμέρα ἐκδικήσεως τοῦ ἐκδικῆσαι τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτοῦ, καὶ καταφάγεται ἡ μάχαιρα Κυρίου καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεται καὶ μεθυσθήσεται ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτῶν, ὅτι θυσία τῷ Κυρίῳ σαβαὼθ ἀπὸ γῆς βορρᾶ ἐπὶ ποταμῷ Εὐφράτῃ. 11 ἀνάβηθι Γαλαὰδ καὶ λάβε ῥητίνην τῇ παρθένῳ θυγατρὶ Αἰγύπτου· εἰς κενὸν ἐπλήθυνας ἰάματά σου, ὠφέλεια οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν σοί. 12 ἤκουσαν ἔθνη φωνήν σου, καὶ τῆς κραυγῆς σου ἐπλήσθη ἡ γῆ, ὅτι μαχητὴς πρὸς μαχητὴν ἠσθένησαν, ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἔπεσαν ἀμφότεροι. ___ 13 ῝Α ἐλάλησε Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ ῾Ιερεμίου τοῦ ἐλθεῖν Ναβουχοδονόσορ τὸν βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος τοῦ κόψαι γῆν Αἰγύπτου. - 14 ᾿Αναγγείλατε εἰς Μάγδωλον καὶ παραγγείλατε εἰς Μέμφιν, εἴπατε· ἐπίστηθι καὶ ἑτοίμασον, ὅτι κατέφαγε μάχαιρα τὴν σμίλακά σου. 15 διατί ἔφυγεν ἀπὸ σοῦ ὁ ῏Απις; ὁ μόσχος ὁ ἐκλεκτός σου οὐκ ἔμεινεν, ὅτι Κύριος παρέλυσεν αὐτόν. 16 καὶ τὸ πλῆθός σου ἠσθένησε καὶ ἔπεσε, καὶ ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἐλάλει· ἀναστῶμεν καὶ ἀναστρέψωμεν πρὸς τὸν λαὸν ἡμῶν εἰς τὴν πατρίδα ἡμῶν ἀπὸ προσώπου μαχαίρας ῾Ελληνικῆς. 17 καλέσατε τὸ ὄνομα Φαραὼ Νεχαὼ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου, Σαών–᾿Εσβί–᾿Εμωήδ. 18 ζῶ ἐγώ, λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεός, ὅτι ὡς τὸ ᾿Ιταβύριον ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσι καὶ ὡς ὁ Κάρμηλος ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ ἥξει. 19 σκεύη ἀποικισμοῦ ποίησον σεαυτῇ, κατοικοῦσα θύγατερ Αἰγύπτου, ὅτι Μέμφις εἰς ἀφανισμὸν ἔσται καὶ κληθήσεται οὐαὶ διὰ τὸ μὴ ὑπάρχειν κατοικοῦντας ἐν αὐτῇ. 20 δάμαλις κεκαλλωπισμένη Αἴγυπτος, ἀπόσπασμα ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἦλθεν ἐπ’ αὐτήν. 21 καὶ οἱ μισθωτοὶ αὐτῆς ἐν αὐτῇ ὥσπερ μόσχοι σιτευτοὶ τρεφόμενοι ἐν αὐτῇ, διότι καὶ αὐτοὶ ἀπεστράφησαν καὶ ἔφυγον ὁμοθυμαδόν, οὐκ ἔστησαν, ὅτι ἡμέρα ἀπωλείας ἦλθεν ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς καὶ καιρὸς ἐκδικήσεως αὐτῶν. 22 φωνὴ ὡς ὄφεως συρίζοντος, ὅτι ἐν ἄμμῳ πορεύονται· ἐν ἀξίναις ἥξουσιν ἐπ’ αὐτὴν ὡς κόπτοντες ξύλα. 23 ἐκκόψουσι τὸν δρυμὸν αὐτῆς, λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεός, ὅτι οὐ μὴ εἰκασθῇ, ὅτι πληθύνει ὑπὲρ ἀκρίδα καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτοῖς ἀριθμός. 24 κατῃσχύνθη ἡ θυγάτηρ Αἰγύπτου, παρεδόθη εἰς χεῖρας λαοῦ ἀπὸ βορρᾶ. 25 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐκδικῶ τὸν ᾿Αμμὼν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς ἐπὶ Φαραώ καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς πεποιθότας ἐπ’ αὐτῷ. 27 σὺ δὲ μὴ φοβηθῇς, δοῦλός μου ᾿Ιακώβ, μηδὲ πτοηθῇς, ᾿Ισραήλ· διότι ἐγὼ ἰδοὺ σῴζων σε μακρόθεν καὶ τὸ σπέρμα σου ἐκ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀναστρέψει ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἡσυχάσει καὶ ὑπνώσει, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ παρενοχλῶν αὐτόν. 28 μὴ φοβοῦ, παῖς μου ᾿Ιακώβ, λέγει Κύριος, ὅτι μετὰ σοῦ ἐγώ εἰμι· ἡ ἀπτόητος καὶ τρυφερὰ παρεδόθη· ὅτι ποιήσω ἔθνει συντέλειαν ἐν παντὶ ἔθνει, εἰς οὓς ἔξωσά σε ἐκεῖ, σὲ δὲ οὐ μὴ ποιήσω ἐκλιπεῖν· καὶ παιδεύσω σε εἰς κρίμα καὶ ἀθῷον οὐκ ἀθῳώσω σε.
