20 Egypt is like a [a]fair calf, but destruction cometh: out of the North it cometh.

21 Also her hired men [b]are in the midst of her like fat calves: they are also turned back and fled away together: they could not stand, because the day of their destruction was come upon them, and the time of their visitation.

22 The voice thereof shall go forth like a [c]serpent: for they shall march with an army, and come against [d]her with axes, as hewers of wood.
