Ezekiel 29:13-16 (JDV)
Ezekiel 29:13 ” ‘You see, this is what the Lord Yahveh says: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples where they were dispersed.
Ezekiel 29:14 I will restore the fortunes of Egypt and bring them back to the land of Pathros, the land of their origin. There they will be a lowly kingdom.
Ezekiel 29:15 Egypt will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself over the nations. I will make them so small they cannot rule over the nations.
Ezekiel 29:16 It will never again be an object of trust for the house of Israel, drawing attention to their violation of turning to the Egyptians. Then they will know that I am the Lord Yahveh.'”
“Trust me,” Egypt said, and Israel did so. But God did not want that. God wants his people to trust him — their creator and redeemer.
Who do you trust?
