6 And known have all inhabitants of Egypt That I 'am' Jehovah, Because of their being a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
7 In their taking hold of thee by thy hand, -- thou art crushed, And hast rent to them all the shoulder, And in their leaning on thee thou art broken, And hast caused all their thighs to stand.
8 Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I am bringing in against thee a sword, And have cut off from thee man and beast.
9 And the land of Egypt hath been for a desolation and a waste, And they have known that I 'am' Jehovah. Because he said: The flood 'is' mine, and I made 'it'.
10 Therefore, lo, I 'am' against thee, and against thy floods, And have given the land of Egypt for wastes, A waste, a desolation, from Migdol to Syene, And unto the border of Cush.
