Isaiah Chapter 31
1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

Verse 3 shows the limitations that the Egyptians and horses have in offering security to the Israelites. From a human standpoint it would seem like a good idea to go to Egypt for assistance, but in comparison to turning to God this proved to be futile.

Vs 6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. Jesus Christ our Lord and savoir is whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted and the Lord gave this prophecy unto Isaiah as warning. Turn be unto him Jesus Christ amen.
