6 A [mournful, inspired] oracle ([a]a burden to be carried) concerning the beasts of the Negev (the South):
Through a land of trouble and anguish,
From [b]where come lioness and lion, viper and [fiery] flying serpent,
They carry their riches on the shoulders of young donkeys
And their treasures on the humps of camels,
To a people (Egyptians) who cannot benefit them.
For Egypt’s help is worthless and good for nothing.
Therefore, I have called her
“Rahab Who Has Been Exterminated.”
