Deuteronomy 17:16; Isaiah 31:1; Isaiah 31:3; Isaiah 36:6; Isaiah 36:9

16 Only he must not acquire many chorses for himself or cause the people dto return to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, since the Lord has said to you, eYou shall never return that way again.


Woe to Those Who Go Down to Egypt

31  Woe1 to vthose who go down to Egypt for help

and rely on horses,

who wtrust in chariots because they are many

and in horsemen because they are very strong,

but xdo not look to the Holy One of Israel

or consult the Lord!


The Egyptians are man, and not God,

and their horses care flesh, and not spirit.

When the Lord stretches out his hand,

the helper will stumble, and he who is helped will fall,

and they will all perish together.


qBehold, you are trusting in Egypt, that broken reed of a staff, which will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it. Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him.


How then can you repulse sa single captain among the least of my master's servants, when tyou trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?
