Isaiah 20

Prophecy about Egypt and Ethiopia

1In the year that the
Heb Tartan
b  commander came to c  Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him and he fought against Ashdod and captured it,
2at that time the  Lord spoke through d  Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, “Go and loosen the e  sackcloth from your hips and take your f  shoes off your feet.” And he did so, going g  naked and barefoot. 3And the  Lord said, “Even as My servant Isaiah has gone naked and barefoot three years as a
Or wonder
i  sign and token against Egypt and
Or Ethiopia, so in vv 4, 5
k  Cush,
4so the l  king of Assyria will lead away the captives of Egypt and the exiles of Cush m  young and old, naked and barefoot with buttocks uncovered, to the
Lit nakedness
shame of Egypt.
5“Then they will be o  dismayed and ashamed because of Cush their hope and Egypt their p  boast. 6So the inhabitants of this coastland will say in that day, ‘Behold, such is our hope, where we fled q  for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria; and we, r  how shall we escape?’”
