Help Not in Egypt but in God1Woe to those who go down to a Egypt for help
And b rely on horses,
And trust in chariots because they are many
And in horsemen because they are very strong,
But they do not c look to the d Holy One of Israel, nor seek the Lord!
2Yet He also is e wise and will f bring disaster
And does g not retract His words,
But will arise against the house of h evildoers
And against the help of the i workers of iniquity.
3Now the Egyptians are j men and not God,
And their k horses are flesh and not spirit;
So the Lord will l stretch out His hand,
And m he who helps will stumble
And he who is helped will fall,
And all of them will come to an end together.
4For thus says the Lord to me, “As the n lion or the young lion growls over his prey,
Against which a band of shepherds is called out,
And he will not be terrified at their voice nor disturbed at their noise,
So will the Lord of hosts come down to wage o war on Mount Zion and on its hill.”
▼ Or hoveringflying q birds so the Lord of hosts will protect Jerusalem.
He will r protect and deliver it;
He will pass over and rescue it.
6 s Return to Him from whom ▼
▼ Lit theyyou have u deeply defected, O sons of Israel. 7For in that day every man will v cast away his silver idols and his gold idols, which your w sinful hands have made for you as x a sin. 8And the y Assyrian will fall by a sword not of man,
And a z sword not of man will devour him.
So he will ▼
▼ Lit flee, ab not escape the sword,
And his young men will become ac forced laborers.
9“His ad rock will pass away because of panic,
And his princes will be terrified at the ae standard,”
Declares the Lord, whose af fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
