Help Not in Egypt but in God

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:1 - Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help
And rely on horses,
And trust in chariots because they are many
And in horsemen because they are very strong,
But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:2 - Yet He also is wise and will bring disaster
And does not retract His words,
But will arise against the house of evildoers
And against the help of the workers of iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:3 - Now the Egyptians are men and not God,
And their horses are flesh and not spirit;
So the LORD will stretch out His hand,
And he who helps will stumble
And he who is helped will fall,
And all of them will come to an end together.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:4 - For thus says the LORD to me,
“As the 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 war on Mount Zion and on its hill.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:5 - Like [fn]flying birds so the LORD of hosts will protect Jerusalem.
He will protect and deliver it;
He will pass over and rescue it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:6 - Return to Him from whom [fn]you have deeply defected, O sons of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:7 - For in that day every man will cast away his silver idols and his gold idols, which your sinful hands have made for you as a sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:8 - And the Assyrian will fall by a sword not of man,
And a sword not of man will devour him.
So he will [fn]not escape the sword,
And his young men will become forced laborers.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 31:9 - “His rock will pass away because of panic,
And his princes will be terrified at the standard,”
Declares the LORD, whose fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
