Ezekiel 29:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

“Son of man, turn to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. Tell him, ‘This is what the Almighty Lord says:

I’m against you, Pharaoh, king of Egypt.
    You are like a monster crocodile lying in the Nile River.
You say, “The Nile River is mine. I made it for myself.”

“‘I will put hooks in your jaws
    and make the fish in the Nile River stick to your scales.
I will pull you out of your river
    with all the fish in the Nile sticking to your scales.
