20 Egypt is a beautiful calf,[a]
    but a horsefly from the north is surely coming.
21 Even the mercenary troops in her ranks
    are like a fattened calf.
They too will turn around,
    and will flee together.
They won’t stand,
    for the day of their disaster is coming on them,
        the time of their punishment.
22 Her cry will be like that of a fleeing serpent
    when they come in strength.
        They’re coming to her with axes like woodcutters.
