Isaiah 31:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The Lord, Not the Egyptians, Will Protect His People from Assyria

    How horrible it will be for those
    who go to Egypt for help,
    who rely on horses,
    who depend on many chariots,
    who depend on very strong war horses.
        They don’t look to the Holy One of Israel.
        They don’t seek the Lord.
            He is wise and can bring about disaster.
            He doesn’t take back his words.
            He rises against wicked people
                and against those who help troublemakers.
The Egyptians are humans, not gods.
    Their horses are flesh and blood, not spirit.
When the Lord uses his powerful hand,
    the one who gives help will stumble,
        and the one who receives help will fall.
            Both will die together.
