2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers.
A lamentation for Egypt
...her heaven darkened; her sun obscured. She shall make her grave with the mighty who had gone before.
These prophecies have been fulfilled: overall, and in remarkable detail. This exact time, under Nebuchadnezzar, was the turning point for Egypt. She plunged down, never to rise. None of her ancient great cities remain: the present large cities have all been built by foreigners.
Papyrus, which supplied the world's paper for over three thousand years, down to the tenth century AD, and was Egypt's chief article of commerce, no longer even exists there. For centuries it was world renowned for the exquisite fineness of its linen. Samples have been found of finer weave than anything produced today. All that vanished under God's judgments, though some of it took many centuries.
But, like Israel, there was to be a latter-day restoration. Though still a very weak and inconsequential country, dependent on foreign help, as the prophecy requires, Egypt has, within our own times - the "Latter Days"- like Israel achieved independence for the first time in two thousand years.

7 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.
The Chaldean power under Nebuchadnezzar was the cloud that covered the sun of Egypt, and made the stars of its heaven dark, and its moon eclipsed; and the pharoah dragon thenceforth swam no more in Egypt.
8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith Adonai Yahweh.
The Chaldean power under Nebuchadnezzar was the "cloud" that covered the sun of Egypt, and made the stars of its heaven dark, and its moon eclipsed; and the Pharaoh-Dragon thenceforth swam no more in Egypt.
After the same manner the prophets spoke when they predicted the overthrow of the kingdoms of Babylon and Idumea. In foretelling the subversion of the former power by the Medes and Persians, Isaiah says in symbolizing ch. xiii. 9,
"For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light; the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine" (ver. 10);
which in verse 11, is interpreted to signify the punishing of the Chaldean world for evil, "and the wicked for their iniquity."
