But Pharaoh’s protection will become your shame,
and refuge in Egypt’s shadow your humiliation.(A)
For though his[a] princes are at Zoan(B)
and his messengers reach as far as Hanes,
everyone will be ashamed
because of a people who can’t help.
They are of no benefit, they are no help;
they are good for nothing but shame and disgrace.(C)

A pronouncement(D) concerning the animals of the Negev:[b]

Through a land of trouble and distress,
of lioness and lion,
of viper and flying serpent,(E)
they carry their wealth on the backs of donkeys
and their treasures on the humps of camels,
to a people who will not help them.
Egypt’s help is completely worthless;
therefore, I call her:
Rahab Who Just Sits.(F)
