Messages Concerning Egypt

10 And that the day to the Lord Jehovah of armies, a day of vengeance to be avenged of his adversaries: and the sword consumed and was satiated, and drunk their blood to the full; for a sacrifice to the Lord Jehovah of armies in the land of the north by the river Phrath. 11 Go up to Gilead, and take balsam, O virgin daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou bring up many healings; none to thee. 12 The nations heard thy shame, and thy outcry filled the land: for the strong stumbled against the strong; they two fell together.
