Isaiah 30:5-7 Expanded Bible (EXB)

but they will be put to shame,
    because Egypt is useless to them.
It will give no help and will be of no ·use [benefit; advantage];
    it will cause them only shame and ·embarrassment [disgrace].”

God’s Message to Judah

This is a ·message [prophecy; oracle; burden] about the ·animals [beasts] in ·southern Judah [the South; L the Negev]:

·Southern Judah is a dangerous place [L Though a land of trouble and distress]
    full of lions and lionesses,
    ·poisonous snakes [adders] and ·darting [or flying, fiery] ·snakes [serpents].
·The messengers travel through there with their wealth [L They carry their riches] on the backs of donkeys
    and their treasure on the ·backs [humps] of camels.
They carry them to a nation that cannot help them,
    to Egypt whose help is ·useless [L worthless and futile].
So I call that country Rahab [C mythical sea monster symbolic of chaos; 51:9; Ps. 89:10] the ·Do-Nothing [Harmless; Silenced].
