Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|31:1||Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, and lean on horses, and trust on chariotry, because it is great; and in horsemen because they are very strong! But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek Jehovah.|
|31:2||And He also is wise, and brings evil, and will not turn aside His words, but will rise against the house of evildoers, and against the help of those who work iniquity.|
|31:3||And Egypt is a man, and not God. And their horses are flesh, and not spirit. And Jehovah stretches out His hand, and both he who helps shall fall, and he who is helped shall fall; and they shall all cease together.|
|31:4||For so Jehovah has said to me: As the lion roars, even the young lion on his prey when the multitude of shepherds are gathered against him, he will not fear their voice, nor fret himself because of their noise. So Jehovah of Hosts shall come down to fight on Mount Zion, and on its hill.|
|31:5||As birds that fly, so Jehovah of Hosts will shield over Jerusalem; shielding and delivering, and passing over, He will save it .|
|31:6||Turn back to Him against whom you have made a deep revolt, sons of Israel.|
|31:7||For in that day each shall despise his silver idols and his golden idols, which your hands have made for you; a sin.|
|31:8||Then Assyria shall fall by a sword, not of man; yea, a sword, not of man, shall devour him. For he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall become forced labor.|
|31:9||And his rock will pass away from fear; and his commanders shall tremble at the banner, declares Jehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and His furnace in Jerusalem.|
