31 Woe to them athat go down to Egypt for help;
And btrust in chariots, because they are many;
And in horsemen, because they are very strong;
But they look not unto the Holy One of Israel,
cNeither seek the Lord!
2 Yet he dalso is wise, and will bring evil,
But will arise against the house of the evildoers,
And against the help of fthem that work iniquity.
3 Now the Egyptians are men, and gnot God;
And their horses gflesh, and not spirit.
When the Lord shall stretch out his hand,
Both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is hholpen shall fall down,
And ithey all shall fail together.
When ma multitude of shepherds is called forth against him,
He will not nbe afraid of their voice,
Nor abase himself for the ||noise of them:
oSo shall the Lord of hosts come down
To fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
5 pAs birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem;
qDefending also he will deliver it;
And rpassing over he will preserve it.
6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel shave deeply revolted.
7 For in that day tevery man shall cast away
Which your own hands have made unto you vfor a sin.
And the sword, not of xa mean man, shall devour him:
And his princes shall be afraid of bthe ensign,
Saith the Lord, cwhose fire is in Zion,
And his dfurnace in Jerusalem.
