A type prefiguring the shameful captivity of Egypt and Ethiopia.
Isaiah 20:1 In the yeare that Tharthan came vnto Asdod (whan Sargon þe kyng of Assyria had sent him) and had foughte agaynst Asdod and taken it. Isaiah 20:2 At the same tyme spake the Lorde by the hande of Esay the sonne of Amos, sayeng: Go and take of the sacke clothe from thy loynes, & put of thy shooe from thy foote. And he dyd so, walkynge naked and bare foote. Isaiah 20:3 And the Lord sayde: lyke as my seruaunt Esay hath walked naked, and bare fote for a signe and wonder thre yeares vpon Egypte, and Ethiopia: Isaiah 20:4 Euen so shall the kynge of Assyria take awaye out of Egypte and out of Ethiopia, chyldren and olde men, naked and bare fote wyth their loynes vncouered, to the greate shame of Egypte. Isaiah 20:5 They shalbe brought in feare also, & asshamed one of another: Ethiopia of Egypte, and Egypte of Ethiopia, considerynge what glory they were in a fore. Isaiah 20:6 And they þt dwell in þe same yle, shal saye in that daye: Beholde, thus are we regarded. Whither shall we flye for helpe, that we maye be delyuered from the kyng of Assyria? And howe shall we escape?
