Prophecy about Egypt and Ethiopia

1 In the year that the a1commander came to 2Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him and he fought against Ashdod and captured it, 2 at that time the LORD spoke through 3Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, "Go and loosen the 4sackcloth from your hips and take your 5shoes off your feet." And he did so, going 6naked and barefoot. 3 And the LORD said, "Even as My servant Isaiah has gone naked and barefoot three years as a b7sign and token against Egypt and c8Cush, 4 so the 9king of Assyria will lead away the captives of Egypt and the exiles of Cush, 10young and old, naked and barefoot with buttocks uncovered, to the dshame of Egypt. 5 "Then they will be 11dismayed and ashamed because of Cush their hope and Egypt their 12boast. 6 "So the inhabitants of this coastland will say in that day, 'Behold, such is our hope, where we fled 13for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria ; and we, 14how shall we escape ?'
