Other than Psalm 83, are there any unfulfilled prophecies specifically regarding Egypt before the 2nd Coming that we should be watching for now that they have ticked off Israel?

"Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord". 2 Kings 19:14
I entered the word Egypt in the SearchBibleGateway.com which is located onm this page on the right side of Ritan's site.
It gave 646 verses that have the word Egypt in them. Well, I didn't go thru and read them but yoi might want to Love, just FYI.

This is a reply I made on a thread a while back:

Let's check out the verses in the chapter:
The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. Isaiah 19:1
When the Aswan Dam was constructed, it was necessary to physically move the ancient carvings of their gods to other locations, to prevent them from being flooded.
2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. Isaiah 19:2-3
Egypt has a long history of its citizens fighting amongst themselves. It's hard to say when this might refer to, but take your pick.
4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts. Isaiah 19:4
People have identified various personalities as fitting this. Egypt has had several very cruel leaders, such as Nasser and Mubarak. Past or future?
5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.
6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.
7 The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.
8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.
9 Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.
10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish. Isaiah 19:5-10
Now, this is really interesting: When the Aswan Dam was constructed, it ruined Egypt's economy, which depended upon the periodic flooding of the Nile River. All those things mentioned above have already taken place! Parasites have destroyed the fishing industry; jobs vanished almost instantly. And there are radical groups that would like to see the dam gone.1 vote of thanks [Sojourner 12]
I think it might be true that the Great Pyramid of Giza foretells many Biblical dates such as the giving of the Law and the crucifixion of our Lord. It contains more than a million stones fit together which is no small feat considering the tools they had back then. I wouldn't be surprised if God would use this as a sign in the end times.

In Hebrew each letter has a numerical value. The Pyramid’s height in inches equals the sum of all the letters in the Hebrew text of Isaiah 19:19-20 (5449).
As far as I can determine, this is the correct height of the Great Pyramid, and it curiously matches the numerical value of the verses. If anyone knows otherwise, please inform me.
There is no question that the Great Pyramid is an engineering marvel, and it seems to be alluded to in Isaiah 19:19-20.
<sup class="versenum">19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. <sup class="versenum">20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. Isaiah 19:19-20
May I ask, Sammy, how it would be seen as a sign during the Tribulation? People have scarcely accepted the things that are said about it now as being significant. How would they come to view it as more so later?
I'm not saying you are mistaken, as I have also wondered about some of the connections (and doubted others). But do you have any speculations about how the pyramid might come to be seen by an unbelieving world as having more importance than it does now? I'm thinking that without some major archaeolgical discovery that it would not. It isn't regarded as a monument to the Lord currently by common thinking.
Syria and Egypt joining in the coalition of nations bent to destroy Israel is showing its fangs ~ along with Russia, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya, . So is Saudi Arabia and Lebanon poised to join in
it's here ~~ what's left? along with the leftist political agenda in America, sympathetic with these nations, ~~~where's Israel's defense?~~ Poof the rapture happens, the greatest devestation to what's left of the USA ~~ This is all probable today .
Jesus said: ~~when you ' BEGIN to see these things' . . .“For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.” — Isaiah 54:5
It seems to me that the Isaiah 19-20 verses and those following it refer to the time after the return of Christ and the beginning of the Millennial Kingdom. Does God have any other Savior besides the King of kings and Lord of lords? Further the healing of the nations sounds more consistent with a time of renewal and blessing than a time of tribulation and judgment.For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Gal 3:27
Thank you for the information, it has given me a variety of things to research. I am currently reading David Flynn's Temple at the Center of Time which may help in pointing to the Great Pyramid regarding Egypt. I wish he were still with us. Seems prophecy is unraveling day by day.1 vote of thanks [David R]
More headlines about Egypt's moving military hardware into the Sinai:1 vote of thanks [Reborn]
Just an FYI on the Giza pyrimad. It has been speculated that even with our modern "high tech" tools and engineering we could not build the Giza pyrimad.
Peter H, I thought that I read quite a few years ago that 'modern' Egypt does not have the means to remove or destroy the great pyramid!
And more headlines regarding Egypt:
Hamas's Al Aqsa TV has aired sermons by an Egyptian cleric in which he says that people he meets everywhere "thirst for the blood of the Jews." The video was monitored and translated by MEMRI.

DEBKAfile revealed that Egypt was holding M-60 tanks in northern Sinaiwithout coordination with Israel as a bargaining chip for gaining substantial US economic aid and refraining from a rapprochement Iran. Since there is still no sign of Egypt launching its promised major offensive against al-Qaeda-linked jihadi strongholds in Sinai, Cairo is finding it hard to explain the tanks’ unauthorized presence there and keeps on coming up with lame excuses. Tuesday, Egyptian officials tried maintaining that they gained Israel’s permission a year ago after repeated sabotage of the gas pipeline to Israel and Jordan and it is still current. Later, they said the tanks were necessary to defend the northern Sinai town of El Arish.
Had the counter-terror offensive taken off three weeks ago when it was promised, Israel would have not demurred to the tanks’ presence - so long as Cairo gave a timeline for their removal. No such timeline has been offered.
