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 are many: and in horsemen, because they are very strong: and have not trusted in the Holy One of Israel, and have not sought after the Lord.
Vae qui descendunt in Aegyptum ad auxilium, in equis sperantes, et habentes fiduciam super quadrigis, quia multae sunt; et super equitibus, quia praevalidi nimis; et non sunt confisi super Sanctum Israel, et Dominum non requisierunt!

 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.
Ipse autem sapiens adduxit malum, et verba sua non abstulit; et consurget contra domum pessimorum, et contra auxilium operantium iniquitatem.

 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.
Aegyptus homo, et non deus; et equi eorum caro, et non spiritus; et Dominus inclinabit manum suam, et corruet auxiliator, et cadet cui praestatur auxilium, simulque omnes consumentur.

 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.
Quia haec dicit Dominus ad me : Quomodo si rugiat leo et catulus leonis super praedam suam; et cum occurrerit ei multitudo pastorum, a voce eorum non formidabit, et a multitudine eorum non pavebit : sic descendet Dominus exercituum ut praelietur super montem Sion et super collem ejus.

 5 As birds dying, so will the Lord of hosts protect Jerusalem, protecting and delivering, passing over and saving.
Sicut aves volantes, sic proteget Dominus exercituum Jerusalem, protegens et liberans, transiens et salvans.

 6 Return as you had deeply revolted, O children of Israel.
Convertimini, sicut in profundum recesseratis, filii 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.
In die enim illa abjiciet vir idola argenti sui, et idola auri sui, quae fecerunt vobis manus vestrae in peccatum.

 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.
Et cadet Assur in gladio non viri, et gladius non hominis vorabit eum : et fugiet non a facie gladii, et juvenes ejus vectigales erunt.

 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.
Et fortitudo ejus a terrore transibit, et pavebunt fugientes principes ejus, dixit Dominus : cujus ignis est in Sion et caminus ejus in Jerusalem.
