Isaiah 19
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The burden of Egypt: behold LORD JEHOVAH rides on swift clouds and enters Egypt, and the idols of Egypt shall be moved from before him and the heart of the Egyptian shall melt within him

2And I shall provoke Egyptian against Egyptian, and a man shall fight with his brother and a man with his neighbor, city with city and kingdom with kingdom

3And the spirit of the Egyptian shall be cut off within him, and I shall drown his counsel, and they shall inquire of idols, and of the Magi, and of necromancers and of soothsayers

4And I shall deliver the Egyptians into the hands of hard Masters, and strong Kings will be authorized over them, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts

5And they shall cut off the waters from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and shall dry up

6And they shall cut off the rivers and they shall diminish, and strong rivers shall lay waste the reeds and papyrus reed, and the papyri shall dry up

7And pond weed that is on the river and on the mouth of the river and everything that is sown on the side of the river shall dry up and shall be blighted and shall not be found

8And the fishermen shall weep and they who cast fish hooks in the river shall dwell in mourning, and they who spread nets on the face of the waters shall despair

9And the makers of fine linen who comb and who weave for joy shall be frustrated

10And all who make liquor for a soul’s drinking shall be humiliated

11The Princes of Zoan became insane! The wise men who counsel Pharaoh the King of Kings are mad men! How will you say to Pharaoh: ”We are wise and the sons of the first Kings?”

12Where are your wise men? They shall show you and they shall know what LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts has purposed against Egypt.

13The Princes of Zoan became insane! The Princes of Mephes were lifted up and they have led Egypt astray in the corners of its tribes

14LORD JEHOVAH has mixed within it a deceiving spirit and has led astray the Egyptian in all his works as a drunkard who staggers in his vomit

15And the Egyptian shall not have a man who will make head or tail or tail or head

16In that day the Egyptian shall be like a woman and he shall be afraid, and he shall shake before the size of the hand of LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts which he lifts against him 17And the land of Judea shall be for the Egyptian for a terror, and everyone who will make mention of it to him shall be terrified from before the counsel of LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts which he counseled against him

18In that day there shall be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak in the Canaanite language, and they swear by LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, and one of them shall be called Heress

19In that day there shall be an altar for LORD JEHOVAH within the land of Egypt and a pillar to LORD JEHOVAH on the side of her border 20And it shall be for a sign and for a witness to LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts in the land of Egypt, because they shall cry out before LORD JEHOVAH from before the oppressor, and he shall send them The Savior and The Judge, and he shall save them 21And LORD JEHOVAH will be made known to the Egyptians and the Egyptians shall know LORD JEHOVAH in that day, and they shall bring sacrifices and fine wheat flour and they shall vow vows to LORD JEHOVAH and they shall fulfill them 22And LORD JEHOVAH will strike the Egyptians a blow and he shall heal them, and they shall be converted to LORD JEHOVAH and he shall answer them and he shall heal them

23In that day there shall be a road from Egypt to Assyria and from Assyria to Egypt, and the Assyrians will enter Egypt and Egypt into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve the Assyrians

24In that day Israel shall be third to the Egyptians and a blessing to the Assyrians within the Earth 25him whom LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts blesses and says, “Blessed are my people in Egypt, and the work of my hands who are in Assyria and my inheritance Israel"
