It was the year that the Tartan f An Assyrian title meaning “General”; cf. 2 Kings 18.17 and note. came to Ashdod—being sent by King Sargon of Assyria—and attacked Ashdod and took it. 2 Previously, g Lit. “At that time.” the LORD had spoken to Isaiah son of Amoz, saying, “Go, untie the sackcloth from your loins and take your sandals off your feet,” which he had done, going naked and barefoot. 3 And now the LORD said, “It is a sign and a portent for Egypt and Nubia. Just as My servant Isaiah has gone naked and barefoot for three years, 4 so shall the king of Assyria drive off the captives of Egypt and the exiles of Nubia, young and old, naked and barefoot and with bared buttocks—to the shame of Egypt! 5 And they shall be dismayed and chagrined because of Nubia their hope and Egypt their boast. 6 In that day, the dwellers of this coastland shall say, ‘If thiscould happen to those we looked to, to whom we fled for help and rescue from the king of Assyria, how can we ourselves escape?’”
