Isaiah 30:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

They shall be all ashamed of the people that cannot profit them, nor help, nor do them good, but shall be a shame and also a reproach.

¶ The [a]burden of the beasts of the South, in a land of trouble and anguish, from whence shall come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent against them that shall bear their riches upon the shoulders of the colts, and their treasures upon the bunches of the camels, to a people that cannot profit.

For the Egyptians are vanity, and they shall help in vain. Therefore have I cried unto [b]her, Their strength [c]is to sit still.


  1. Isaiah 30:6 That is, a heavy sentence or prophecy against the beasts that carried their treasures into Egypt, by the wilderness, which was south from Judah, signifying that if the beasts should not be spared, the men should be punished much more grievously.
  2. Isaiah 30:7 To wit, to Jerusalem.
  3. Isaiah 30:7 And not to come to and fro to seek help.
