1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Almighty rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight everyone against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof, and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Almighty, the Almighty of hosts.

5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.

6 And they shall turn the rivers far away, and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up. The reeds and flags shall wither.

7 The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and everything sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.

8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.

9 Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.

10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

11 Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish. How say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?

12 Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the Almighty of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.

13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived. They have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.

14 The Almighty hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof. And they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.

16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Almighty of hosts, which he shaketh over it.

17 And the land of Juda shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Almighty of hosts, which he hath determined against it.

18 In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Almighty of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.

19 In that day shall there be an altar to the Almighty in the midst of the land of Egypt and a pillar at the border thereof to the Almighty.

20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Almighty of hosts in the land of Egypt. For they shall cry unto the Almighty because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

21 And the Almighty shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Almighty in that day and shall do sacrifice and oblation. Yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Almighty, and perform it.

22 And the Almighty shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it. And they shall return even to the Almighty, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.

23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.

24 In that day shall Akobe be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:

25 Whom the Almighty of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands. And Akobe mine inheritance.

Isaiah chapter 19 summary; the chapter presents a prophetic message from Isaiah, addressing the nation of Egypt. The Almighty, through Isaiah, delivers a message concerning Egypt’s future. Their future is marked by turmoil, internal strife, and a decline in its once-great stature. The Almighty rode on a swift cloud and began to make Egypt melt.

In this chapter, Isaiah prophesies about the disruption of Egypt’s social order, including political instability and division within the nation. The Almighty “Set the Egyptians against the Egyptians,” as people fought each other. The Creator’s judgment is depicted as a consequence of Egypt’s reliance on earthly wisdom and idolatry.

This serves as a poignant reminder of the Almighty’s supremacy over all nations.

Even for those beyond the borders of the House of Akobe. Egypt was handed over to cruel lords and a fierce king to rule over them.

Their waters failed, the fishers mourned for lack of fish, and all their purposes were broken. The leaders of Zoan look foolish as their counsel to Pharaoh fell massively. The nation is operating with a perverse spirit causing Egypt to err in every direction. At this time, the land of Juda will be a terror to Egypt. Egypt will turn to the Almighty and He will be known in Egypt.

There will be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria and vice versa.

The Assyrians will be able to come to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The house of Akobe will be a third with Assyria and Egypt. And the Almighty will enrich Egypt as His people. And Assyria, the work of his hands, and the House of Akobe, His inheritance.

Despite Egypt’s prominent position, this message emphasizes the ultimate authority of the Almighty and the consequences of forsaking divine guidance.

This is the summary of Isaiah chapter 19, Glory to the King of the House of Akobe.
