Go to Commentary on Isa 31
 

 1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help,

 and rely on horses

 and trust in chariots because they are many,

 and in horsemen because they are very strong,

 but they do not look to the Holy One of Israel

 nor seek Yahweh!

 

 2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring disaster

 and will not call back his words,

 but will arise against the house of the evildoers

 and against the helpers of those who work iniquity.

 

 3 Now the Egyptians are men and not God,

 and their horses flesh and not spirit.

 When Yahweh stretches out his hand,

 the one who helps will stumble,

 and the one who is helped will fall,

 and all of them will come to an end together.

 

4For this is what Yahweh said to me:

 “Just as the lion or the young lion growls over his prey,

 and when a multitude of shepherds is called out together against him,

 he will not be afraid because of their shouting

 nor intimidated by their noise,

 so Yahweh of Armies will come down to fight

 on Mount Zion

 and on its hill.

 

 
5 
Like birds hovering,

 so Yahweh of Armies will protect Jerusalem.

 He will protect and deliver it.

 He will pass over and preserve it.”

 

6Return to him from whom you have deeply rebelled, O children of Israel!
  7For in that day everyone will cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold that your own hands have made for you—a sin!
 

 8 The Assyrian will fall

 but not by the sword of man;

 and the sword that is not of mankind

 will devour him.

 He will flee from the sword,

 and his young men will become subject to forced labor.

 

 9 And his rock will pass away because of terror,

 and his officials will be afraid of the banner,”

says Yahweh, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
