31 Woe to vthose who go down to Egypt for help
who wtrust in chariots because they are many
but xdo not look to the Holy One of Israel
2 And yyet he is wise and brings disaster;
zhe does not call back his words,
but awill arise against the house of the evildoers
and against the helpers of bthose who work iniquity.
and their horses care flesh, and not spirit.
d“As a lion or a young lion growls over his prey,
eso the Lord of hosts will come down
to fight1 on Mount Zion and on its hill.
5 fLike birds hovering, so the Lord of hosts
6 gTurn to him from whom people2 have hdeeply revolted, O children of Israel. 7 For in that day ieveryone shall cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your hands have sinfully made for you.
8 j“And the Assyrian shall fall by a sword, not of man;
and his young men shall be kput to forced labor.
9 lHis rock shall pass away in terror,
declares the Lord, whose mfire is in Zion,
and whose nfurnace is in Jerusalem.
