Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 19

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, HaShem rideth upon a swift cloud, and cometh unto Egypt; and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at His presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt within it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 And I will spur Egypt against Egypt; and they shall fight every one against his brother, and everyone against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And the spirit of Egypt shall be made empty within it; and I will make void the counsel thereof; and they shall seek unto the idols, and to the whisperers, and to the ghosts, and to the familiar spirits.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And I will give over the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the L-rd, HaShem of hosts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be drained dry,

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And the rivers shall become foul; the streams of Egypt shall be minished and dried up; the reeds and flags shall wither.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 The mosses by the Nile, by the brink of the Nile, and all that is sown by the Nile, shall become dry, be driven away, and be no more.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The fishers also shall lament, and all they that cast angle into the Nile shall mourn, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Moreover they that work in combed flax, and they that weave cotton, shall be ashamed.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And her foundations shall be crushed, all they that make dams shall be grieved in soul.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The princes of Zoan are utter fools; the wisest counsellors of Pharaoh are a senseless counsel; how can ye say unto Pharaoh: 'I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings'?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Where are they, then, thy wise men? And let them tell thee now; and let them know what HaShem of hosts hath purposed concerning Egypt.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have caused Egypt to go astray, that are the corner-stone of her tribes.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 HaShem hath mingled within her a spirit of dizziness; and they have caused Egypt to stagger in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Neither shall there be for Egypt any work, which head or tail, palm-branch or rush, may do.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women; and it shall tremble and fear because of the shaking of the hand of HaShem of hosts, which He shaketh over it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 And the land of Judah shall become a terror unto Egypt, whensoever one maketh mention thereof to it; it shall be afraid, because of the purpose of HaShem of hosts, which He purposeth against it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 In that day there shall be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan, and swear to HaShem of hosts; one shall be called The city of destruction.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 In that day shall there be an altar to HaShem in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto HaShem of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they shall cry unto HaShem because of the oppressors, and He will send them a saviour, and a defender, who will deliver them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 And HaShem shall make Himself known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know HaShem in that day; yea, they shall worship with sacrifice and offering, and shall vow a vow unto HaShem, and shall perform it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 And HaShem will smite Egypt, smiting and healing; and they shall return unto HaShem, and He will be entreated of them, and will heal them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria; and the Egyptians shall worship with the Assyrians.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 for that HaShem of hosts hath blessed him, saying: 'Blessed be Egypt My people and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel Mine inheritance.'
