Egypt dominated the Middle East, building a rich empire in the process, leaving behind remnants that we can still see today, but their rebellion against the Lord brought them down,

In that day Egypt will be like women, and will be afraid and fear because of the waving of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which He waves over it. And the land of Judah will be a terror to Egypt; everyone who makes mention of it will be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts which He has determined against it (Isaiah 19.16–17). 

Now what is Egypt? She does not even come close to her former glory, and so shall it be to any nation, congregation, business, school, university, news outlet, anything that lifts itself up against the Lord.
