Yet he too is wise and brings disaster;
    he does not call back his words,
but will rise against the house of the evildoers,
    and against the helpers of those who work iniquity.
The Egyptians are human, and not God;
    their horses are flesh, and not spirit.
When the Lord stretches out his hand,
    the helper will stumble, and the one helped will fall,
    and they will all perish together.

For thus the Lord said to me,
As a lion or a young lion growls over its prey,
    and—when a band of shepherds is called out against it—
is not terrified by their shouting
    or daunted at their noise,
so the Lord of hosts will come down
    to fight upon Mount Zion and upon its hill.

Yet he too is wise(A) and can bring disaster;(B)
    he does not take back his words.(C)
He will rise up against that wicked nation,(D)
    against those who help evildoers.
But the Egyptians(E) are mere mortals and not God;(F)
    their horses(G) are flesh and not spirit.
When the Lord stretches out his hand,(H)
    those who help will stumble,
    those who are helped(I) will fall;
    all will perish together.(J)

This is what the Lord says to me:

“As a lion(K) growls,
    a great lion over its prey—
and though a whole band of shepherds(L)
    is called together against it,
it is not frightened by their shouts
    or disturbed by their clamor(M)
so the Lord Almighty will come down(N)
    to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights.
