The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 20, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 20


   1 In anno quo ingressus est Tharthan in Azotum, cum misisset eum Sargon rex Assyriorum, et pugnasset contra Azotum et cepisset eam,
   2 in tempore illo locutus est Dominus in manu Isaiae filii Amos dicens: "Vade et solve saccum de lumbis tuis et calceamenta tua tolle de pedibus tuis". Et fecit sic, vadens nudus et discalceatus.
   3 Et dixit Dominus: "Sicut ambulavit servus meus Isaias nudus et discalceatus tribus annis signum et portentum super Aegyptum et super Aethiopiam,
   4 sic minabit rex Assyriorum captivos Aegypti et exsules Aethiopiae, iuvenes et senes, nudos et discalceatos, discoopertis natibus ad ignominiam Aegypti.
   5 Et timebunt et confundentur ab Aethiopia spe sua et ab Aegypto gloria sua.
   6 Et dicet habitator maritimae regionis huius in die illa: "Ecce, haec erat spes nostra, quo confugimus in auxilium, ut liberaremur a facie regis Assyriorum; et quomodo effugere poterimus nos?" ".

King James Version

   1 In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it;
   2 At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
   3 And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;
   4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.
   5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.
   6 And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?
