Read Isaiah Chapter 19 – The Burden Against Egypt

3. Who will Egypt be afraid of? Why?

4. What is foretold in Isaiah 19:18-25 about the future for Egypt?

5. What three nations will worship the Lord together in the future?

This prophecy was probably fulfilled in 670 B.C. when Egypt was conquered by Esar-haddon, king of Assyria. The Assyrian conquest proved that the many gods of Egypt were powerless to help (19:1) and that the mediums and wizards were unable to give counsel (v.3). . .

But that is not all. The forty-two provinces of Egypt, called “nomes,” would be thrown into disarray and start fighting each other (Isaiah 19:2). The Nile River, the source of Egypt’s economy, and the streams and canals of the land would all dry up; and this would put farmers, fishermen, and cloth manufacturers out of business (vv.5-10). For centuries, the Egyptians were respected for their wisdom; but now the princes and counselors would not know what to do (vv.11-13). Instead of walking a straight path, the nation was led astray by leaders who were ad dizzy as a drunken man staggering around in his vomit (vv.14-15).

Isaiah 18 – Message to Ethiopia

Read Isaiah chapter 18
The Ethiopians had sent ambassadors to the Jews asking them to join an alliance against the Assyrians. The Lord, however, said, “Refuse their invitation. I’ll take care of the Assyrians in my own time.”

That’s the point the Lord makes over and over again. “When will the nations look to Me, wait on Me, trust in Me?” He asks. “How long will they try to succeed in their own abilities only to fail miserable?”

Not only is this a word for nations–but for each of us in our own situations.
