Everyone will start to stink because of a people that cannot profit them,

not for help and not for profiting,
    but for shame and also for disgrace.”

Oracle regarding the Negev

An oracle of the animals of the Negev:

Through a land of trouble and distress,
    of lioness and lion,
    among[a] them are snake and flying serpent;
they carry their wealth on the backs[b] of male donkeys
    and their treasures on the humps[c] of camels,
    to a people that cannot profit them.
For[d] Egyptians[e] help with vanity and emptiness,
    therefore I have called this one “Rahab, they are sitting.”
