I will give Pharaoh-hophra
44:30 I will give Pharaoh-hophra. This particular pharaoh, ruling at the time of this Jewish flight into Egypt, was later assassinated by his own enemies in the palace, with the resulting turmoil giving Nebuchadnezzar and his armies occasion and opportunity to invade and subjugate Egypt. See the similar prophecy in Jeremiah 43:8-13. Although there has been little secular confirmation of this invasion and captivity of Egypt by Babylon, there has been enough in recent years to confirm its basic historicity. See notes on Ezekiel 29, which predicts the same event.
