Isaiah 31

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Woe to those who go to Egypt for help, they rely on horses and rely on chariots, because there are many of them, and on horsemen, because they are very strong, but they do not look at the Holy Israel and do not resort to the Lord!
2 But He is wise; and he will bring distress, and will not cancel his words; will rise up against the house of the wicked and against the help of those who practice lawlessness.
3 And the Egyptians are people, not God; and their horses are flesh, not spirit. And the Lord will stretch out His hand, and the protector will stumble, and the protected one will fall, and all will perish together.
4 For so the Lord told me: like a lion, like a skimen roaring over his prey, even if a lot of shepherds shouted at him, they won’t shudder from their scream and didn’t yield to many of them, so the Lord of hosts came down to fight for Mount Zion and for his hill .
5 As birds are chicks, so the Lord of hosts will cover Jerusalem, protect and deliver, spare and save.

6 Turn to Him from whom you have so much fallen, sons of Israel!
7 On that day, every man will cast away his silver idols and his golden idols, which your hands have made for your sin.
eight And Assur will not fall from the human sword, and not the human sword will consume it; he will escape from the sword, and his youth will be a tribute.
nine And out of fear, he will run past his fortress; and his princes will be frightened of the banner, says the Lord, whose fire is in Zion and crucified in Jerusalem.
