Yahweh, via Ezekiel, said the demise of Tyre would have a big impact on the other coastal towns, if it was to fall. The shaking of the walls and the groaning of the wounded ones would be heard by many people. There would be a great slaughter among the people of Tyre.
The Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, Neco, missed his chance since he was only a braggart who did not back up his words. Yahweh was going to send someone who would make a big impact on southern Egypt around Memphis. He would come like the great mountains of Tabor or the sea mountains of Carmel, both around the plains of Jezreel. They ought to pack their bags to get ready to leave for exile. The city of Memphis would become a waste and a ruin, without anyone living there. This was a clear warning.
