Say to them, ‘Are you more favoured than others? Go down and be laid among the uncircumcised.’
‘Whom do you surpass in beauty? Go down and make your bed with the uncircumcised.’
Say to them, ‘O Egypt, are you lovelier than the other nations? No! So go down to the pit and lie there among the outcasts.’
Say, 'You think you're so high and mighty? Down! Take your place with the heathen in that unhallowed grave!'
Are you more beautiful than any? go down, and take your rest among those without circumcision,
"Whom do you surpass in beauty? Go down! Be laid to rest with the uncircumcised!"
‘Whom do you surpass in beauty? Go down, be placed with the uncircumcised.’
