15 And the Lord will utterly destroy1
qthe tongue of the Sea of Egypt,
with his scorching breath,3
and strike it into seven channels,
and he will lead people across in sandals.
24 Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown,
scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth,
when he blows on them, and they wither,
eand the tempest carries them off like stubble.
