Jeremiah 46:20-22 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

20 Egypt is a beautiful young cow,
but a horsefly from the north is coming against her.[a]
21 Even her mercenaries among her
are like stall-fed calves.
They too will turn back;
together they will flee;
they will not take their stand,
for the day of their calamity is coming on them,
the time of their punishment.
22 Egypt will hiss like a slithering snake,[b]
for the enemy will come with an army;
with axes they will come against her
like those who cut trees.
