A. 20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
B. and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.
A’. 22 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms,
B’. the strong, and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.
2A. 23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.
2B. 24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon,
2C. and put my sword in his hands:
2D. but I will break Pharaoh’s arms. and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.
2B’. 25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon,
2D’. and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down;
2C’. and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall put my sword in the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt.
2A’. 26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and scatter them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
