And (A)yet he is wise and brings disaster;
    (B)he does not call back his words,
but (C)will arise against the house of the evildoers
    and against the helpers of (D)those who work iniquity.
The Egyptians are man, and not God,
    and their horses (E)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,
(F)“As a lion or a young lion growls over his prey,
    and when a band of shepherds is called out against him
he is not terrified by their shouting
    or daunted at their noise,
(G)so the Lord of hosts will come down
    to fight[a] on Mount Zion and on its hill.
