Egypt and Ethiopia fail to resolve Nile dispute in new round of talks

The foreign ministers and intelligence chiefs of Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan met in Khartoum on Thursday. After nearly 17 hours of hard bargaining, they failed to reach an agreement on issues arising from Addis Ababa’s ongoing construction of the controversial Grand Renaissance Dam on the Nile. The mega project has caused tensions with Egypt, which fears it will divert water from the Nile on which it is totally dependent for drinking water and farming irrigation. Cairo demands that its historic rights to the Nile and former treaties granting Egypt 87 percent of the river’s flow, be upheld.

      Tehillah 97

      1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
      The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.

      the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

      2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

      3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.

      Fire will go before Him: in the war of Gog and Magog, for it is written concerning his war (Ezek. 38:22): “And I shall plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and rain bringing floods and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.”

      4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.

      His lightnings: His brilliant lights, an expression of (Ezek. 21:15): “It is polished that it may glitter”

      5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.

      melted like wax: as it is written (Ezek. 38:20): “and the mountains will be thrown down, and the cliffs will fall.”
