Isaiah 30:2-5Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
2 They set out to go down to Egypt
without asking My advice,
in order to seek shelter under Pharaoh’s protection
and take refuge in Egypt’s shadow.
3 But Pharaoh’s protection will become your shame,
and refuge in Egypt’s shadow your disgrace.
4 For though his princes are at Zoan
and his messengers reach as far as Hanes,
5 everyone will be ashamed
because of a people who can’t help.
They are of no benefit, they are no help;
they are good for nothing but shame and reproach.
