Yet he too is wise and can bring disaster; he does not take back his words. He will rise up against the house of the wicked, against those who help evildoers.

Yet He also is wise and will bring disaster And does not retract His words, But will arise against the house of evildoers And against the help of the workers of iniquity.

BBE ©

Though he is wise, and able to send evil, and his purpose will not be changed; but he will go against the house of the evil-doers, and against those to whom they are looking for help.

NET © Notes

sn This statement appears to have a sarcastic tone. The royal advisers who are advocating an alliance with Egypt think they are wise, but the Lord possesses wisdom as well and will thwart their efforts.

tn Heb “and he does not turn aside [i.e., “retract”] his words”; NIV “does not take back his words.”

tn Heb “and he will arise against the house of the wicked.”

sn That is, Egypt.

tn Heb “and against the help of the doers of sin.”
