0 SAB Isaiah 20

The liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand. 32:8

Trivia: According to Isaiah 66, what is like cutting off a dog's neck?



Isaiah walks naked and barefoot for three years
(as a sign and a wonder)

1 In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it;

2At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

God said to Isaiah,

Take off the sackcloth from your loins, and your shoes from your feet.

So Isaiah did that, walking naked and barefoot. [1]

3And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;

God said,

Isaiah walked naked and barefoot for three years as a sign and a wonder.

4So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

6 And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?

So will the king of Assyria lead Egyptian and Ethiopian prisoners naked and barefoot (with their buttocks uncovered).
