Isaiah 19:1-4 The Voice (VOICE)

19 A message about Egypt:
The Eternal One will come winging in to Egypt
On a swiftly moving cloud, making her idols quake.
    The Egyptians themselves will lose heart in the face of God.

2, 4 The Lord, the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, says,

Eternal One: I will subject the Egyptians to oppressive forces
        and heartless leadership of a dictator-king.
    I will make them turn against each other,
        Egyptian against Egyptian, a civil war,
    Right down to the houses within a neighborhood—
        city against city, district against district.[a]
    They’ll lose all courage and I’ll frustrate their plans.
        They’ll seek the advice of long dead ancestors and empty idols,
        mediums and fortune-tellers.
    But it is I who determine their fate.


  1. 19:4 Verse 4 has been moved forward to help in the comprehension of the passage.
