- the Naked Prophet}
In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod
Sargon the king of Assyria sent him)
fought against Ashdod, and took it . . . 2
the same time
Jehovah/God by Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saying,
and loose the sackcloth from off your loins,
put off your shoe from your foot."
he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
And Jehovah/God said,
as My servant Isaiah
walked naked and barefoot three years
a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia . . . 4
shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners,
the Ethiopians captives, young and old,
with their buttocks uncovered,
the shame of Egypt. 5
they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation,
of Egypt their glory. 6
the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day,
such is our expectation,
we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria . . .
how shall we escape?"
