A Lament For Pharaoh, King Of Egypt

2 “Son of man, take up a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him,

Yet you are like the monster in the seas;
And you burst forth in your rivers
And muddied the waters with your feet
And fouled their rivers.’”

“Now I will spread My net over you
With a company of many peoples,
And they shall lift you up in My net.

And I will cause all the birds of the heavens to dwell on you,
And I will satisfy the beasts of the whole earth with you.
