The confusion of Egypt.
Isaiah 19:1 The oracle on Egypt: Lo! Yahweh, riding upon a swift cloud, and he will enter Egypt, And the idols of Egypt, shall shake, at his presence, And, the heart of Egypt, shall melt within him; Isaiah 19:2 And I will stir up, Egyptians, against, Egyptians, And they shall fightEvery one against his brother, and, Every one against his neighbour,City against city, and, Kingdom against kingdom. Isaiah 19:3 And the spirit of Egypt, shall vanish, within them, Yea, the sagacity thereof, will I swallow up,And they will seek, Unto the idols, and, Unto them that mutter, and, Unto them that have familiar spirits, and, Unto the wizards; Isaiah 19:4 And I will deliver the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel lord,And a fierce king shall rule over them, Declareth the Lord, Yahweh of hosts. Isaiah 19:5 And the waters shall be dried up from the great stream,And, the River, shall waste and be dry; Isaiah 19:6 And rivers, shall stink, The canals of Egypt be shallow and waste, Reed and rush, be withered; Isaiah 19:7 The meadows by the Nile, by the mouth of the Nile, And all that is sown in the Nile, Shall be dry, driven away, and not be! Isaiah 19:8 Then shall the fishers, lament, And all shall mourn, who cast in the Nile a hook,And, they who spread nets on the face of the waters shall languish; Isaiah 19:9 Then shall turn pale, The workers in combed flax,and, The weavers of white linen; Isaiah 19:10 Then shall her pillars be crushed,All who make wages, be bowed down in soul.
The foolishness of their princes.
Isaiah 19:11 Surely, foolish, are the princes of Zoan, the wisest counselors of Pharaoh, in counsel, are brutish,How can ye say unto Pharaoh, Son of the wise, am I, Son of the kings of olden time? Isaiah 19:12 Where then are, thy wise men? Pray let them tell thee! And let them know what Yahweh of hosts, hath purposed, on Egypt! Isaiah 19:13 Doting, are the princes of Zoan, Deceived, are the princes of Noph: They who are the corner-stone of her tribes, have led Egypt astray. Isaiah 19:14 Yahweh, hath infused in her midst, a spirit of perverseness,And they have led Egypt astray into all his own doings, As a drunken man staggereth, into his own vomit; Isaiah 19:15 And Egypt shall have nothing which can be done, Which head or tail, palm-top or rush, can do! Isaiah 19:16 In that day, shall Egypt be like unto women,And shall start and tremble because of the brandishing of the hand of Yahweh of hosts, which he, is about to brandish over it. Isaiah 19:17 Then shall the soil of Judah become, to Egypt, a terror; Every one to whom it is mentioned, will tremble,Because of the purpose of Yahweh of hosts, which he, is purposing against it.
The calling of Egypt to the Church.
Isaiah 19:18 In that day, shall there be five cities in the land of Egypt, Speaking the language of Canaan, And swearing unto Yahweh of hosts,The city of destruction, shall be the name of one! Isaiah 19:19 In that day, shall there be, An altar unto Yahweh, in the midst of the land of Egypt,And a pillar near the boundary thereof, unto Yahweh; Isaiah 19:20 And it shall become a sign and a witness, unto Yahweh of hosts, in the land of Egypt,For they will make outcry unto Yahweh, because of oppressors, That he would send them a saviourand a great one, Then will he deliver them. Isaiah 19:21 Then will, Yahweh, make himself known, to the Egyptians, So shall, the Egyptians, know, Yahweh, in that day,And they will offer a sacrifice and a present, And will vow a vow unto Yahweh, and will perform. Isaiah 19:22 And Yahweh, will plague, Egypt, plague and heal,And they will turn unto Yahweh, And he will be entreated of them, and will heal them.
The covenant of Egypt, Assyria, and Israel.
Isaiah 19:23 In that day, shall there be a highway, from Egypt to Assyria, And, the Assyrians, shall come, into, Egypt, And, the Egyptians, into, Assyria; And, the Egyptians, shall serve, with the Assyrians. Isaiah 19:24 In that day, shall, Israel, be, a third, with Egypt and with Assyria,A blessing in the midst of the earth: Isaiah 19:25 Whom Yahweh of hosts hath blessed, saying,Blessed, be, My peoplethe Egyptians, And the work of my handsthe Assyrians, And mine own inheritanceIsrael.
