In that day men shall cast away their idols of silver, and their idols of gold, which have been made for them to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
and I will lay it waste; it shall not be pruned nor hoed; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Memphis are deceived; they have caused Egypt to go astray, that are the corner-stone of her tribes.
Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city.
The children also of Memphis and Tahpanhes have broken the crown of thy head.
and they came into the land of Egypt; for they obeyed not the voice of Jehovah: and they came unto Tahpanhes.
Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I will also destroy the idols, and I will cause the images to cease from Memphis; and there shall be no more a prince from the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.
And I will set a fire in Egypt: Sin shall be in great anguish, and No shall be broken up; and Memphis (shall have) adversaries in the day-time.
The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us.
