Bible: Isa 19:1-4

The Lord Will Judge Egypt

19:1 Here is a message about Egypt:

Look, the Lord rides on a swift-moving cloud

and approaches Egypt.

The idols of Egypt tremble before him;

the Egyptians lose their courage. 1 

19:2I will provoke civil strife in Egypt, 2 

brothers will fight with each other,

as will neighbors,

cities, and kingdoms. 3 

19:3 The Egyptians will panic, 4 

and I will confuse their strategy. 5 

They will seek guidance from the idols and from the spirits of the dead,

from the pits used to conjure up underworld spirits, and from the magicians. 6 

19:4 I will hand Egypt over to a harsh master;

a powerful king will rule over them,”

says the sovereign master, 7  the Lord who commands armies.
