Isaiah 20


Isaiah Goes Barefoot and Naked

1The year that Tartan entered unto Ashdod, when he was sent by Sargon king of the Assyrians, and he waged war against Ashdod, and overtook it, 2Then the  lord spoke to Isaiah son of Amoz, saying, Go and remove the sackcloth from your loin, and [2your sandals 1untie] from your feet! And he did thus, going naked and barefoot. 3And the  lord said, In which manner [3goes 1Isaiah 2my servant] naked and barefoot -- three years shall be signs and miracles to the Egyptians and Ethiopians; 4for thus [3shall lead 1the king 2of the Assyrians] the captivity of Egypt and Ethiopia, young men and old men, naked and barefoot, uncovering the shame of Egypt. 5And they shall be ashamed being vanquished upon the Ethiopians of whom [3were 4relying 1the 2Egyptians], for they were their glory. 6And [6shall say 1the 2ones dwelling 3in 4the 5island] this in that day, Behold, we were relying to flee to them for help, to the ones who were not able to be delivered from the king of the Assyrians; and how shall we be delivered?
