NASB — Isaiah 31 — KJV

Help Not in Egypt but in God

  1 Woe to those who go down to aEgypt for help
  [And] brely on horses,
  And trust in chariots because they are many
  And in horsemen because they are very strong,
  But they do not clook to the dHoly One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!
  2 Yet He also is awise and will bbring disaster
  And does cnot retract His words,
  But will arise against the house of devildoers
  And against the help of the eworkers of iniquity.
  3 Now the Egyptians are amen and not God,
  And their bhorses are flesh and not spirit;
  So the LORD will cstretch out His hand,
  And dhe who helps will stumble
  And he who is helped will fall,
  And all of them will come to an end together.

  “As the alion or the young lion growls over his prey,
  Against which a band of shepherds is called out,
  [And] he will not be terrified at their voice nor disturbed at their noise,
  So will the LORD of hosts come down to wage bwar on Mount Zion and on its hill.”
  5 Like Iflying abirds so the LORD of hosts will protect Jerusalem.
  He will bprotect and deliver [it];
  He will pass over and rescue [it].

The prophet sheweth the cursed folly in trusting to Egypt, and forsaking of God.

1 ¶ Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because [they are] many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD! 2 Yet he also [is] wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity. 3 Now the Egyptians [are] men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together. 4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, [he] will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. 5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it.
