Isaiah 20

20
XX
1In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod and took it; 2at that time Jehovah spake by Isaiab the son of Amoz, saying: Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoes from thy feet. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot. 3And Jehovah said: Like as my servant Isaiab hath walked naked and barefoot three years, a sign and wonder for Egypt and for Cush; 4so shall the king of Assyria lead the captives of Egypt and the exiles of Cush, the young and the old, naked and barefoot with their hind-parts uncovered, to the shame of the Egyptians. 5And they shall be terrified, and ashamed of Cush their expectation; and of Egypt their glory. 6And the inhabitant of this region shall say in that day: Behold, such is our expectation, whither we fled for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?

A Sign regarding Egypt and Cush
1In the year the commander-in-chief came#Literally “of the coming of the commander in chief” to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and he took it, 2at that time, Yahweh had spoken by the hand of Isaiah son of Amoz, saying,
“Go and loosen the sackcloth from your loins,
and take off your sandals#Hebrew “sandal” from your feet,”
and he had done so, walking naked and barefoot.
3Then#Or “And” Yahweh said, “Just as my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years as a sign and a portent against Egypt and Cush, 4so shall the king of Assyria lead the captives#Hebrew “captive” of Egypt and the exiles of Cush, young and old, naked and barefoot, with bared buttocks,#Literally “and bare of buttocks” the shame of Egypt.
5And they shall be dismayed,
and they shall be ashamed
because of Cush, their hope,
and because of Egypt, their pride.
6And the inhabitant#Hebrew “inhabitant” of the coastland will say this on that day:
‘Look! This is our hope to whom we fled for help, to be delivered from#Literally “from the face of” the king of Assyria, and how shall we escape?’ ”
