The folly of trusting to Egypt, and forgetting God. He will fight for his people against the Assyrians.

[1] Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help, trusting in horses, and putting their confidence in chariots, because they me many: and in horsemen, because they me very strong: and have not trusted in the Holy One of Israel, and have not sought after the Lord. [2] But he that is the wise one hath brought evil, and hath not removed his words: and he will rise up against the house of the wicked, and against the aid of them that work iniquity. [3] Egypt is man, and not God: and their horses, flesh, and not spirit: and the Lord shall put down his hand, and the helper shall fall, and he that is helped shall fall, and they shall all be confounded together. [4] For thus saith the Lord to me: Like as the lion roareth, and the lion' s whelp upon his prey, and when a multitude of shepherds shall come against him, he will not fear at their voice, nor be afraid of their multitude: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight upon mount Sion, and upon the hill thereof. [5] As birds dying, so will the Lord of hosts protect Jerusalem, protecting and delivering, passing over and saving.

[6] Return as you had deeply revolted, O children of Israel. [7] For in that day a man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your hands have made for you to sin. [8] And the Assyrian shall fall by the sword not of a man, and the sword not of a man shall devour him, and he shall flee not at the face of the sword: and his young men shall be tributaries. [9] And his strength shall pass away with dread, and his princes fleeing shall be afraid: the Lord hath said it, whose die is in Sion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
