Futile Confidence in Egypt

(A)“Who take counsel, but not of Me,
And who [a]devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
(B)That they may add sin to sin;
(C)Who walk to go down to Egypt,
And (D)have not asked My advice,
To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh,
And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!

Shall be your shame,
And trust in the shadow of Egypt
Shall be your humiliation.
For his princes were at (F)Zoan,
And his ambassadors came to Hanes.
