Holman Christian Standard Bible
18 Now what will you gain
by traveling along the way to Egypt(A)
to drink the waters of the Nile?[a]
What will you gain
by traveling along the way to Assyria(B)
to drink the waters of the Euphrates?(C)
19 Your own evil will discipline you;(D)
your own apostasies will reprimand you.
Think it over and see how evil and bitter(E) it is
for you to abandon the Lord your God
and to have no fear of Me.
This is the declaration
of the Lord God of Hosts.
