And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, bringing iniquity to remembrance, when they turn after them; and they shall know that I am the L-rd GOD.'
And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of HaShem came unto me, saying:
'Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyre; every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled; yet had he no wages, nor his army, from Tyre, for the service that he had served against it;
Therefore thus saith the L-rd GOD: Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall carry off her abundance, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.
I have given him the land of Egypt as his hire for which he served, because they wrought for Me, saith the L-rd GOD.
In that day will I cause a horn to shoot up unto the house of Israel, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am HaShem.'
