Oracle Of Judgment On Egypt

11 The princes of Zoan are mere fools; The advice of Pharaoh's wisest advisers has become stupid How can you men say to Pharaoh, "I am a son of the wise, a son of ancient kings"? 12 Well then, where are your wise men? Please let them tell you, And let them understand what the LORD of hosts Has purposed against Egypt. 13 The princes of Zoan have acted foolishly, The princes of Memphis are deluded; Those who are the cornerstone of her tribes Have led Egypt astray.
