A type prefiguring the shameful captivity of Egypt and Ethiopia.
Isaiah 20:1 In the yeere that Tartan came vnto Ashdod (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him) and fought against Ashdod and tooke it: Isaiah 20:2 At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the sonne of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loynes, and put off thy shooe from thy foot: and he did so, walking naked and bare foot. Isaiah 20:3 And the LORD said, Like as my seruant Isaiah hath walked naked and bare foote three yeeres [for] a signe and wonder vpon Egypt and vpon Ethiopia: Isaiah 20:4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captiues, yong and old, naked and bare foote, euen with their buttocks vncouered, to the shame of Egypt. Isaiah 20:5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory. Isaiah 20:6 And the inhabitant of this yle shall say in that day; Behold, such [is] our expectation whither we flee for helpe to be deliuered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?
