Deuteronomy 17:16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 In any case, he is not to acquire many horses for himself, nor shall he make the people return to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, since the Lord has said to you, ‘You shall never again return that way.’
30 “Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And [a]make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin; 2 Who proceed down to Egypt Without consulting [b]Me, To take refuge in the safety of Pharaoh, And to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt! 3 Therefore the safety of Pharaoh will be your shame, And the shelter in the shadow of Egypt, your humiliation. 4 For their officials are at Zoan And their ambassadors arrive at Hanes. 5 Everyone will be ashamed because of a people who do not benefit them, Who arenot a help or benefit, but a source of shame and also disgrace.”
6 The pronouncement concerning the animals of the Negev:
Through a land of distress and anguish, From [c]where come lioness and lion, viper and flying serpent, They carry their riches on the [d]backs of young donkeys, And their treasures on camels’ humps, To a people who will not benefit them; 7 Even Egypt, whose help is vain and empty. Therefore, I have called [e]her “[f]Rahab who has been exterminated.”
