know that I am the LORD

Ezekiel 32


For I have caused my terror in the land of the living: and he shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with [them that are] slain with the sword, [even] Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.

This chapter seems to conclude talking about the judgment of Pharaoh, and the judgment of Egypt. It's the fourth chapter in a row in Ezekiel that talks about it (Ezekiel 29, 30, 31, and 32), just like Ezekiel talked about Tyrus for the 3 chapters before that.

I have caused my terror in the land of the living...
Egypt was going to be in the place of the dead with many other countries the Lord judged, which caused terror in the land of the living (v23,24,26,27). So the Lord would cause His terror in the land of the living, on them.


And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.

Once again, it seems to be talking not only about the fall of Egypt in history, but the future events leading up to the end of the world.


When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I [am] the LORD.
It all seems to be about everyone knowing that God is the Lord. Pharaoh isn't the Lord. Tyrus isn't the Lord. none of the other countries are. We should be humble, and not treat ourselves, other people, or even our country, like they're God. We should know that God is the Lord.
