And indeed, he is wise, and he brings disaster,
    and he does not remove his words,
and he will rise against the house of evildoers
    and against the help of workers of iniquity.
And the Egyptians are human and not God,
    and their horses are flesh and not spirit.
And Yahweh stretches out his hand,
    and the helper will stumble,
and the one being helped will fall,
    and together all of them will come to an end.[a]

For Yahweh said this to me:

“As which a lion growls
    and a young lion over its prey

when a full group[b] of shepherds is called against him,

it is not terrified by their voice,
    and to their noise it does not respond,
so Yahweh of hosts will come down to fight upon Mount Zion
    and upon its hill.
