Chapter 31

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 al 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. 

 

 


Isaiah 32
