The papyrus written by Ipuwer, contain description of mysterious devastated egypt ... which is similar to the 10 plagues described in Bible... Comment plz...
The papyrus Ipuwer is most often used by those, like me that support the theory that the Exodus, resulted in the collapse of the Old Kingdom. i am going to quote Nicolas Grimal from his A History of Ancient Egypt page 138.
"Manetho's description f the Seventh Dynasty betrays the confused nature of his sources: 'seventy kings in seventy days'/ This formulation may have been a pun on the numer of the dynasty, emphaizing its ephemeral character, or it may have been a metaphor for the seventy creative forces in the Helioplitan cosmology. The Egyptian sources themselves are relatively quiet about this shadowy period. The only known writtn evidence is a literary work, of a somewhat apocryphal nature, which has survived in the form of a single manuscript. This text, said to have been written by a man called Ipuwer, is an apocalyptic evocation of the crimes committed in his lifetime. The general tone and the choice of facts in the 'prophetic Admonitions suggest that the aims of the work were political, Ipuwer longs for the order that prevailed in the past as he describes the state of decline of central power and the lack of a strong king."
Now from the Synchronized Chronology Rethinking Middle East Antiquity by Roger Henry, which in my most humble opinion isn't worth the money i spent to get it except for his section on the Pyprus Ipuwer. He is correct when he states that Dr. Velikovsky was the first scholar to realize that they were very similar to what is described in scripture.

There is alot more but this is all i have from the above referenced book. One of my favorites but not included in this book is... Payprus, verse unknown; And the handmaidens go about as ladies, dressed in their mistress' finest.
According to Ipuwer tombs are robbed, Egypt is just laid waste.
Traditionally the Papyrus of Ipuwer, Admonitions is considered to be dated to the early First Intermediate Period, or the 7th Dynasty.
As i said at the start this is used by many as proof that the Old Kingdom collapse was because of the Exodus. It is not my only proof. It is just another piece in the long story of finding who was the Pharaoh that freed Joseph the son of Jacob.
There is by the way a growing movement to push back the date of the Papyrus of Ipuwer, to that of the end of the 13th Dynasty or the Early 2nd Intermediate Period. This movement does not have a great deal of support as of today.
I suggest you do a web search on it, i bet you find more verses on the web.
Hope you have a nice day.
