29:17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, 1 the word of the Lord came to me: 29:18 “Son of man, King Nebuchadrezzar 2 of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. 3 Every head was rubbed bald and every shoulder rubbed bare; yet he and his army received no wages from Tyre for the work he carried out against it. 29:19 Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Look, I am about to give the land of Egypt to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon. He will carry off her wealth, capture her loot, and seize her plunder; it will be his army’s wages. 29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt as his compensation for attacking Tyre 4 , because they did it for me, declares the sovereign Lord.
