The Warning of Judah
30 Woe to the rebellious children,
6 The burden of the beasts of the Negev.
Through a land of trouble and anguish,
Isaiah 36:6-9 Modern English Version (MEV)
6 You rely on the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who rely on him. 7 But if you say to me, ‘We trust in the Lord our God,’ is it not He whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah has taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, ‘You shall worship before this altar’?
8 “Now therefore, come make a bargain with my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders on them. 9 How then will you turn away one captain of the least of my master’s servants and rely on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?
