The sovereign Lord who commands armies will do this. 1 He touches the earth and it dissolves; 2 all who live on it mourn. The whole earth 3 rises like the River Nile, 4 and then grows calm 5 like the Nile in Egypt. 6
Daughter Tarshish, travel back to your land, as one crosses the Nile; there is no longer any marketplace in Tyre. 1
“Who is this that rises like the Nile, like its streams 1 turbulent at flood stage?
Egypt rises like the Nile, like its streams turbulent at flood stage. Egypt says, ‘I will arise and cover the earth. I will destroy cities and the people who inhabit them.’
