 The burden of Egypt. Behold the Lord will ascend upon a swift cloud, and will enter into Egypt, and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst thereof.
Onus Aegypti. Ecce Dominus ascendet super nubem levem, et ingredietur Aegyptum, et commovebuntur simulacra Aegypti a facie ejus, et cor Aegypti tabescet in medio ejus,
 And I will set the Egyptians to fight against the Egyptians: and they shall fight brother against brother, and friend against friend, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.
et concurrere faciam Aegyptios adversus Aegyptios; et pugnabit vir contra fratrem suum, et vir contra amicum suum, civitas adversus civitatem, regnum adversus regnum.

 The princes of Tanis are become fools, the wise counsellors of Pharao have given foolish counsel: how will you say to Pharao: I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?

In die illa erit altare Domini in medio terrae Aegypti, et titulus Domini juxta terminum ejus.

Erit in signum et in testimonium Domino exercituum in terra Aegypti; clamabunt enim ad Dominum a facie tribulationis, et mittet eis salvatorem et propugnatorem qui liberet eos.
 And the Lord shall be known by Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall worship him with sacrifices and offerings: and they shall make vows to the Lord, and perform them.
