A type prefiguring the shameful captivity of Egypt and Ethiopia.
Isaiah 20:1 In the same yeare that Tharthan came to Asdod, where Sargon the kynge of the Assirians sent him, what tyme as he also beseged Asdod, and wanne it the same season. Isaiah 20:2 Then spake the Lorde vnto Esai the sonne of Amos, sayinge: go and louse of that sacke clothe from thy loynes: and put of thy shoes from thy fete. And so he did, going naked and barefote. Isaiah 20:3 Then sayde the Lorde: where as my seruaunt Esai goeth naked and barefote, it is a token and signifyenge of the thinge, that after thre yeare shall come vpon Egipt and Ethiopia. Isaiah 20:4 For euen thus shall the kinge of the Assirians dryue bothe younge & olde, as presonners naked and barefote, oute of Egipte and Ethiopia. And shall discouer the shame of Egipt. Isaiah 20:5 They shalbe also at their wittes ende, and ashamed one of another: the Egipcians of the Morians, and the Morians of the Egipcians, at the syght of their glorye. Isaiah 20:6 Moreouer they that dwell in the Iles shall se euen the same daye: behold, this is our hope to whom we fled to seke helpe, that we might be delyuered from the kynge of the Assirians. How wil we escape?
