Isaiah 36:6

NET ©

Look, you must be trusting in Egypt, that splintered reed staff. If someone leans on it for support, it punctures his hand and wounds him. That is what Pharaoh king of Egypt does to all who trust in him!

NIV ©

Look now, you are depending on Egypt, that splintered reed of a staff, which pierces a man’s hand and wounds him if he leans on it! Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who depend on him.

NASB ©

"Behold, you rely on the staff of this crushed reed, even on Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who rely on him.

NLT ©

Will Egypt? If you lean on Egypt, you will find it to be a stick that breaks beneath your weight and pierces your hand. The Pharaoh of Egypt is completely unreliable!

MSG ©

Egypt? Don't make me laugh. Egypt is a rubber crutch. Lean on Egypt and you'll end up flat on your face. That's all Pharaoh king of Egypt is to anyone who leans on him.

BBE ©

See, you are basing your hope on that broken rod of Egypt, which will go into a man’s hand if he makes use of it for a support; for so is Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to all who put their faith in him.

NRSV ©

See, you are relying on Egypt, that broken reed of a staff, which will pierce the hand of anyone who leans on it. Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who rely on him.

NKJV ©

"Look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him.

KJV

<0982> (8804)
in the staff
<04938>
of this broken
<07533> (8803)
reed
<07070>_,
on Egypt
<04714>_;
whereon if a man
<0376>
lean
<05564> (8735)_,
it will go
<0935> (8804)
into his hand
<03709>_,

it: so [is] Pharaoh
<06547>
