The Futility of Relying on Egypt

31What sorrow awaits those who look to Egypt for help, trusting their horses, chariots, and charioteers and depending on the strength of human armies instead of looking to the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.H1945H3381H4714H5833H8172H5483H982H7393H7227H6571H3966H6105H8159H6918H3478H1875H3068 2In his wisdom, the Lord will send great disaster; he will not change his mind. He will rise against the wicked and against their helpers.H2450H935H7451H5493H1697H6965H1004H7489H5833H6466H205 3For these Egyptians are mere humans, not God! Their horses are puny flesh, not mighty spirits! When the Lord raises his fist against them, those who help will stumble, and those being helped will fall. They will all fall down and die together.H4714H120H410H5483H1320H7307H3068H5186H3027H5826H3782H5826H5307H3615H3162 4But this is what the Lord has told me. “When a strong young lion stands growling over a sheep it has killed, it is not frightened by the shouts and noise of a whole crowd of shepherds. In the same way, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will come down and fight on Mount Zion.H3068H559H738H3715H1897H2964H4393H7462H7121H2865H6963H6031H1995H3068H6635H3381H6633H2022H6726H1389 5The Lord of Heaven’s Armies will hover over Jerusalem and protect it like a bird protecting its nest. He will defend and save the city; he will pass over it and rescue it.”H6833H5774H3068H6635H1598H3389H1598H5337H6452H4422 6Though you are such wicked rebels, my people, come and return to the Lord.H7725H1121H3478H6009H5627 7I know the glorious day will come when each of you will throw away the gold idols and silver images your sinful hands have made.H3117H376H3988H457H3701H457H2091H3027H6213H2399 8“The Assyrians will be destroyed, but not by the swords of men. The sword of God will strike them, and they will panic and flee. The strong young Assyrians will be taken away as captives.H804H5307H2719H376H2719H120H398H5127H6440H2719H970H4522 9Even the strongest will quake with terror, and princes will flee when they see your battle flags,” says the Lord, whose fire burns in Zion, whose flame blazes from Jerusalem.H5674H5553H4032H8269H2865H5251H5002H3068H217H6726H8574H3389
