Assyria will Conquer Egypt
1 In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and took it,
2 at the same time the LORD spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, "Go, and remove the sackcloth from your body, and take your sandals off your feet." And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
3 Then the LORD said, "Just as My servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Egypt and Ethiopia,
4 so shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians as prisoners and the Ethiopians as captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.
5 Then they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation and Egypt their glory.
6 And the inhabitant of this territory will say in that day, 'Surely such is our expectation, wherever we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria; and how shall we escape?'"
• Tartan was a title for general or commander-in-chief of Sennacherib’s army.
• Ashdod was a Philistine seaport city.
• This is the only known mention of Sargon’s name until recent archaeology revealed him as a might Assyrian monarch.
• Isaiah warns about Egypt’s coming defeat and captivity.
• This prophecy was a warning against Judah for looking to the land of Egypt for help against Assyria (713 B.C.).
• This prophecy was fulfilled in 701 B.C. when Sennacherib conquered Egypt. The Assyrian records say: "I fought with the kings of Egypt, accompanying their overthrow, and captured alive charioteers and sons of the king."

"Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My
indignation. I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the
people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the
prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets. Yet he does not
mean so, Nor does his heart think so; But it is in his heart to destroy, And
cut off not a few nations." - Isaiah 10:5-7
