"Look! You are trusting in the e 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 f trust in him.
New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
Then all the inhabitants of Egypt Shall know that I am the LORD, Because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.
Therefore the strength of Pharaoh Shall be your shame, And trust in the shadow of Egypt Shall be your humiliation.
They were all ashamed of a people who could not benefit them, Or be help or benefit, But a shame and also a reproach.
For the Egyptians shall help in vain and to no purpose. Therefore I have called her RahabHemShe'beth.
