This city is sinking.

Once there was a great city in Egypt (EE-jipt). Alexander the Great had it built. The city still stands. It is Alexandria.

Water is all around the city. Earthquakes and floods have harmed buildings. The city is sinking. People put concrete blocks along the shore. Will they stop the sinking?

READ MORE: Alexander the Great was a man of much knowledge, a king, and a general. He dreamed of a world empire where all people followed the same customs and way of thinking. He invaded Asia with his army. The wars lasted years. But Alexander died before he and his army ever returned home. Egypt wants to protect the large city named for this once powerful man. Psalm 89:9 reminds us that God “rules the raging of the sea.” When its waves rise, He stills them.
