Isaiah 19Names of God Bible (NOG)
Egypt Will Be Punished
19 This is the divine revelation about Egypt.
Yahweh is riding on a fast-moving cloud and is coming to Egypt.
2 “I will turn one Egyptian against another.
5 The water in the Nile River will be dried up,[a]
11 The leaders of Zoan are nothing but fools.
16 At that time Egyptians will act like women. They will tremble and be terrified because Yahweh Tsebaoth will shake his fist at them. 17 The land of Judah will terrify the Egyptians. Whenever they are reminded of Judah, they will be terrified of it because of what Yahweh Tsebaoth is planning against it.
18 When that day comes, five cities in Egypt will have people that speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to Yahweh Tsebaoth. One of the cities will be called Heliopolis.[b]
19 When that day comes, an altar for Yahweh will be in the middle of Egypt, and a stone marker for Yahweh will be near its border. 20 These objects will be a sign and a witness that Yahweh Tsebaoth is in Egypt. When the people cry to Yahweh because of those who oppress them, he will send a savior and defender to rescue them. 21 So Yahweh will make himself known to the Egyptians. The Egyptians will know Yahweh when that day comes. They will worship with sacrifices and food offerings. They will make vows to Yahweh and carry them out. 22 Yahweh will strike Egypt with a plague. When he strikes them, he will also heal them. Then they will come back to Yahweh. And he will respond to their prayers and heal them.
23 When that day comes, a highway will run from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will come to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. 24 When that day comes, Israel will be one-third of God’s people, along with Egypt and Assyria. They will be a blessing on the earth. 25 Yahweh Tsebaoth will bless them, saying, “My people Egypt, the work of my hands Assyria, and my possession Israel are blessed.”
