Chapter 30

  • Now there's a lamentation for Egypt. 
  • A day of doom is coming for Egypt and Ethiopia as well. 
  • Egypt's wealth will be taken away and its foundations destroyed. 
  • Their allies from places like Libya and Arabia will also fall in battle, so this is a warning for Egypt's supporters, too.

Competitive Arm Breaking

  • God gets more specific, explaining that King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian hordes will be doing the destroying. 
  • God will destroy all of Egypt's idols, making sure it no longer has a prince or ruler. He lists the cities he's going to devastate: Thebes, Memphis, Pathros, Zoan, and others. 
  • Its "daughter-towns" will be taken captive too. Suburbs, we guess.
  • God promises Ezekiel that he'll break both of Pharaoh's arms (he's already broken one). Then, after strengthening Nebuchadnezzar's arms so that he can defeat Pharaoh (who will moan like a mortally wounded person before Nebby) he'll scatter the Egyptians throughout the nations.
