Isaiah 31:1-3 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Alliance with Egypt Is Futile

31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help
    and rely on horses,
who trust in chariots because they are many
    and in horsemen because they are very strong,
but do not look to the Holy One of Israel
    or consult the Lord!
And yet he is wise and brings disaster,
    he does not call back his words,
but will arise against the house of the evildoers,
    and against the helpers of those who work iniquity.
The Egyptians are men, and not God;
    and their horses are flesh, and not spirit.
When the Lord stretches out his hand,
    the helper will stumble, and he who is helped will fall,
    and they will all perish together.
