Isaiah 30:5-7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

But Egypt can’t protect you,
and to trust that nation
    is useless and foolish.”

This is a message
about the animals
    of the Southern Desert:
You people carry treasures
    on donkeys and camels.
You travel to a feeble nation
through a troublesome desert
    filled with lions
    and flying fiery dragons.
Egypt can’t help you!
That’s why I call that nation
    a helpless monster.”[a]
