8 And there is a word of Jehovah unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying,
9 'Take in thy hand great stones, and thou hast hidden them, in the clay, in the brick-kiln, that 'is' at the opening of the house of Pharaoh in Tahpanhes, before the eyes of the men of Judah,
10 and thou hast said unto them: Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel: 'Lo, I am sending, and I have taken Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, My servant, and I have set his throne above these stones that I have hid, and he hath stretched out his pavilion over them,
11 and he hath come, and smitten the land of Egypt -- those who 'are' for death to death, and those who 'are' for captivity to captivity, and those who 'are' for the sword to the sword.
12 And I have kindled a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt, and it hath burned them, and he hath taken them captive, and covered himself with the land of Egypt, as cover himself doth the shepherd with his garment, and he hath gone forth thence in peace;
