A Prophecy Against Egypt and Cush...
In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the sovereign of Ashshur sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and took it,

And YHWH said, 'As My servant Yeshayahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Mitsrayim and Kush,
so does the sovereign of Ashshur lead away the captives of Mitsrayim and the exiles of Kush, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered - the shame of Mitsrayim.

'And the inhabitant of this coastland shall say in that day, 'See, such is our expectation, wherever we flee for help to be delivered from the sovereign of Ashshur. And how do we escape?''
