Mitzrayim's help vain

Hashem will defend Yerushalayim

31:1 Woe to them  that go down to Mitzrayim for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because [they are] many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not to the Set Apart One of Yisrael, neither seek ADONAI (יהוה)!

31:2 Yet he also [is] wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.

31:3 Now the Mitzrites [are] men, and not Elohim (אלהים); and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When ADONAI (יהוה) shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

31:4 For thus has ADONAI (יהוה) spoken to me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, [he] will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall ADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot come down to fight for mount Tziyon, and for the hill thereof.

31:5 As birds flying, so will ADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot defend Yerushalayim; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it.

31:6 Turn you to [him from] whom the children of Yisrael have deeply revolted.

31:7 For b'Yom ha hu every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made to you [for] a sin.

31:8 Then shall the Ashshur fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.

31:9 And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, said ADONAI (יהוה), whose fire [is] in Tziyon, and his furnace in Yerushalayim.
