Isaiah 30:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Oracle on the Futility of an Alliance with Egypt
1 Ah! Rebellious children,
oracle of the Lord,
Who carry out a plan that is not mine,
who make an alliance I did not inspire,
thus adding sin upon sin;
2 They go down to Egypt,
without asking my counsel,
To seek strength in Pharaoh’s protection
and take refuge in Egypt’s shadow.
