The Pomp of Egypt

What pomp once graced Egypt! Yet, because of their national sins, the Lord would wipe out that pomp. He promised, “For thus says the Lord GOD: ‘The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon you. By the swords of the mighty warriors, all of them the most terrible of the nations, I will cause your multitude to fall.
They shall plunder the pomp of Egypt,
And all its multitude shall be destroyed.'”
(Ezekiel 32:11-12)
Even as Egypt had done to others, so the Lord would bring a mighty power upon them, the Babylonians, who would humiliate the Egyptians greatly.
Then the Babylonians suffered the same fate, even worse than Egypt, because the Babylonians also had national sins from which they refused to repent.
The repentance of the sins of your nation begin with your own repentance.
