God's word against Egypt continues.
God tells the people to prepare for
3 For the day is near,
the day of the Lord is near;
it will be a day of clouds,
a time of doom for the nations.
4 A sword shall come upon Egypt,
and anguish shall be in Cush,
when the slain fall in Egypt,
and her wealth is carried away,
and her foundations are torn down.
A time of hardship is coming for the people of Egypt, a time of doom and the sword, for her wealth to the carried away.
