Bible: Isa 19:5-10

19:5 The water of the sea will be dried up,

and the river will dry up and be empty. 1 

19:6 The canals 2  will stink; 3 

the streams of Egypt will trickle and then dry up;

the bulrushes and reeds will decay,

19:7 along with the plants by the mouth of the river. 4 

All the cultivated land near the river

will turn to dust and be blown away. 5 

19:8 The fishermen will mourn and lament,

all those who cast a fishhook into the river,

and those who spread out a net on the water’s surface will grieve. 6 

19:9 Those who make clothes from combed flax will be embarrassed;

those who weave will turn pale. 7 

19:10 Those who make cloth 8  will be demoralized; 9 

all the hired workers will be depressed. 10
