Isaiah 31:1

Egypt Will Disappoint

31:1 Those who go down to Egypt for help are as good as dead,

those who rely on war horses,

and trust in Egypt’s many chariots

and in their many, many horsemen.

But they do not rely on the Holy One of Israel

and do not seek help from the Lord.

tn Heb “Woe [to] those who go down to Egypt for help.”

tn Heb “and trust in chariots for they are many.”

tn Heb “and in horsemen for they are very strong [or “numerous”].”

sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.
