Isaiah 20

1Sargon was the king of Assyria. Sargon sent Tarton to Ashdod to fight against that city. Tarton went there and captured the city. 2At that time, the Lord spoke through Isaiah son of Amoz. The Lord said, “Go, take the cloth of sadness off your waist. Take your shoes off your feet.” Isaiah obeyed the Lord. And Isaiah walked around without clothes and without shoes. 3Then the Lord said, “Isaiah has walked around without clothes and without shoes for three years. This is a sign for Egypt and Ethiopia. 4The king of Assyria will defeat Egypt and Ethiopia. Assyria will take prisoners and lead them away from their countries. The old people and young people will be led without clothes and without shoes. They will be completely naked. The people from Egypt will be shamed. 5People looked to Ethiopia for help. Those people will be broken. People were amazed by Egypt’s glory. Those people will be shamed.” 6Those people living near the sea will say, “We trusted those countries to help us. We ran to them so they would rescue us from the king of Assyria. But look at them. Those countries have been captured, so how will we be able to escape?”
