Isaiah 31:2-4 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

And yet he is wise and brings disaster,
    he does not call back his words,
but will arise against the house of the evildoers,
    and against the helpers of those who work iniquity.
The Egyptians are men, and not God;
    and their horses are flesh, and not spirit.
When the Lord stretches out his hand,
    the helper will stumble, and he who is 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 his prey,
    and when a band of shepherds is called forth against him
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.

Isaiah 31:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

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

This is what the Lord says to me:

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