Ezekiel 30:2

Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!

Son of man, prophesy and say, thus saith the Lord God,.... Prophesy against Egypt's king and inhabitants, and in the name of the Lord thus speak against them:

howl ye; ye Egyptians, and also ye Ethiopians, and all others after named, which should share in the destruction of Egypt; this is said to give them notice of it, and prepare them for it:

Woe worth the day! or, "alas for the day!" {d} O the unhappy day! what a sad dismal day is this! O that we should ever live to see such wretched times!
