The Egyptians are No Help

1 Ah! Those who go down [to] Egypt for help! They rely on horses and trust in chariots because [they are] many, and in horsemen because they are very numerous, and they do not look to the holy one of Israel, and they do not consult Yahweh.
2 And indeed, he [is] wise, and he brings disaster, and he does not remove his words, and he will rise against [the] house of evildoers and against [the] help of workers of iniquity.
3 And the Egyptians [are] human and not God, and their horses [are] flesh and not spirit. And Yahweh stretches out his hand, and [the] helper will stumble, and [the] one being helped will fall, and together all of them will come to an end.
4 For Yahweh said this to me: "As which [a] lion growls and [a] young lion over its prey when {a full group} of shepherds is called against him, it is not terrified by their voice, and to their noise it does not respond, so Yahweh of hosts will come down to fight upon Mount Zion and upon its hill.
5 Like birds flying [overhead], so Yahweh of hosts will protect Jerusalem; he will protect and deliver [it]; he will pass over and rescue [it].
6 Turn back to [the one against] whom the sons of Israel have made deep rebellion.
7 For on that day, each one will reject his idols of silver and his idols of gold which your hands have made [in] sin for you.
8 And Assyria shall fall by a sword not [of] a man, and a sword not [of] a human shall devour him; and he shall flee from [the] sword, and his young men shall be [put] to forced labor.
9 And his rock will pass over because of terror, and his officers will be terrified because of [the] flag," {declares} Yahweh, who has a fire in Zion and has a furnace in Jerusalem.
