You see what Egypt is like now, but it was not always like that. The Lord struck the land of Egypt,
“‘As I live,’ says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts, ‘Surely as Tabor is among the mountains and as Carmel by the sea, so he shall come. O you daughter dwelling in Egypt, prepare yourself to go into captivity! For Noph shall be waste and desolate, without inhabitant’” (Jeremiah 46:18-19).
A nation can be great, even the so-called superpower of the world, but if it sins and exalts itself against the God of heaven, it will pay the ultimate price, even as Egypt did.
