20 “Egypt is like a beautiful young cow,
    but a horsefly is coming
    from the north to attack her.
21 The hired soldiers in Egypt’s army
    are like fat calves,
because even they all turn and run away together;
    they do not stand strong against the attack.
Their time of destruction is coming;

    The enemy comes closer and closer.
They come against Egypt with axes
    like men who cut down trees.
