And r thorns shall come up in its palaces,
Nettles and brambles in its fortresses;
s It shall be a habitation of jackals,
A courtyard for ostriches.
New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
On the land of my people will come up thorns and briers, Yes, on all the happy homes in the joyous city.
For indeed they are gone because of destruction. Egypt shall gather them up; Memphis shall bury them. Nettles shall possess their valuables of silver; Thorns shall be in their tents.
But wild beasts of the desert will lie there, And their houses will be full of owls; Ostriches will dwell there, And wild goats will caper there.
