Sunset on the Nile

Our photo today was made from the temple at Kom Ombo overlooking the Nile River. The temple here was built by the Ptolemies in the 4th century B.C.

The biblical prophets warned that ancient Egypt would come to an end. By the time of the Ptolemies, successors to Alexander the Great, the power of the ancient empire was slowly slipping away.

This is what the Lord God says: I will destroy the idols and put an end to the false gods in Memphis. There will no longer be a prince from the land of Egypt. So I will instill fear in that land. (Ezekiel 30:13 CSB)
