Isaiah 20

1. In the year that Tartan came to Ashdad,
as Sargon, king of Ashur, sent him;
he fought against Ashdad and captured it.
2. In it, in that season,
Maryah* spoke through Isaiah* the Prophet, son of Amoz,
and said to him,
"Go and untie the sackcloth from your backs
and the sandals from your feet,
and do likewise yourself,
and walk naked and barefoot."
3. And Maryah* said, "Just as my servant Isaiah walked naked and barefoot,
thus will be the signs and wonders for three years,
upon Missrin and upon Kush."
4. Thus will the king of Ashur carry off the captives of Missrin and the captives of Kush,
the young and old, naked and barefoot,
and the shame of Missrin shall be exposed.
5. And they shall be broken and ashamed,
[regarding] their reliance on Kush and their glory [days] in Missrin.
6. And the inhabitant of this island* shall say on that Day,
"Thus in our reliance,
that we fled to be helped and delivered by the king of Ashur,
and yet we, how have we been delivered?"
