Jeremiah 46:20-22 New Century Version (NCV)

20 “Egypt is like a beautiful young cow,
    but a horsefly is coming
    from the north to attack her.
21 The hired soldiers in Egypt’s army
    are like fat calves,
because even they all turn and run away together;
    they do not stand strong against the attack.
Their time of destruction is coming;
    they will soon be punished.
22 Egypt is like a hissing snake that is trying to escape.
    The enemy comes closer and closer.
They come against Egypt with axes
    like men who cut down trees.

Jeremiah 46:20-22 New International Version (NIV)

20 “Egypt is a beautiful heifer,
    but a gadfly is coming
    against her from the north.
21 The mercenaries in her ranks
    are like fattened calves.
They too will turn and flee together,
    they will not stand their ground,
for the day of disaster is coming upon them,
    the time for them to be punished.
22 Egypt will hiss like a fleeing serpent
    as the enemy advances in force;
they will come against her with axes,
    like men who cut down trees.
