Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall carry off her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army. (ASV)
Here, Ezekiel falsely prophesies that Nebuchadrezzar will conquer Egypt and leave it plundered, desolate and uninhabited for 40 years. This military triumph is supposed to compensate Nebuchadrezzar for the earlier failure of the "Tyre Prophecy" (see the Ezekiel 26:14 article for more details on this). --Robert Stevens 12:48, 15 Mar 2006 (CST)
