Isaiah 19:1-24
1. An oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, the LORD is riding on a swift cloud and comes to Egypt; and the idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence, and the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them.
2. And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight, each against another and each against his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom;
3. and the spirit of the Egyptians within them will be emptied out, and I will confound their counsel; and they will inquire of the idols and the sorcerers, and the mediums and the necromancers;
4. and I will give over the Egyptians into the hand of a hard master, and a fierce king will rule over them, declares the Lord GOD of hosts.
5. And the waters of the sea will be dried up, and the river will be dry and parched,
6. and its canals will become foul, and the branches of Egypt's Nile will diminish and dry up, reeds and rushes will rot away.
7. There will be bare places by the Nile, on the brink of the Nile, and all that is sown by the Nile will be parched, will be driven away, and will be no more.
8. The fishermen will mourn and lament, all who cast a hook in the Nile; and they will languish who spread nets on the water.
9. The workers in combed flax will be in despair, and the weavers of white cotton.
10. Those who are the pillars of the land will be crushed, and all who work for pay will be grieved.
11. The princes of Zoan are utterly foolish; the wisest counselors of Pharaoh give stupid counsel. How can you say to Pharaoh, "I am a son of the wise, a son of ancient kings"?
12. Where then are your wise men? Let them tell you that they might know what the LORD of hosts has purposed against Egypt.
13. The princes of Zoan have become fools, and the princes of Memphis are deluded; those who are the cornerstones of her tribes have made Egypt stagger.
14. The LORD has mingled within her a spirit of confusion, and they will make Egypt stagger in all its deeds, as a drunken man staggers in his vomit.
15. And there will be nothing for Egypt that head or tail, palm branch or reed, may do.
16. In that day the Egyptians will be like women, and tremble with fear before the hand that the LORD of hosts shakes over them.
17. And the land of Judah will become a terror to the Egyptians. Everyone to whom it is mentioned will fear because of the purpose that the LORD of hosts has purposed against them.
18. In that day there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to the LORD of hosts. One of these will be called the City of Destruction.
19. In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border.
20. It will be a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt. When they cry to the LORD because of oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and deliver them.
21. And the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day and worship with sacrifice and offering, and they will make vows to the LORD and perform them.
22. And the LORD will strike Egypt, striking and healing, and they will return to the LORD, and he will listen to their pleas for mercy and heal them.
23. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and Assyria will come into Egypt, and Egypt into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
24. In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth,

Isaiah 20:1-6
1. In the year that the commander in chief, who was sent by Sargon the king of Assyria, came to Ashdod and fought against it and captured it-
2. at that time the LORD spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, "Go, and loose the sackcloth from your waist and take off your sandals from your feet," and he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
3. Then the LORD said, "As my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot for three years as a sign and a portent against Egypt and Cush,
4. so shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptian captives and the Cushite exiles, both the young and the old, naked and barefoot, with buttocks uncovered, the nakedness of Egypt.
5. Then they shall be dismayed and ashamed because of Cush their hope and of Egypt their boast.
6. And the inhabitants of this coastland will say in that day, 'Behold, this is what has happened to those in whom we hoped and to whom we fled for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria! And we, how shall we escape?'"

Psalms 106:40-48
40. Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage;
41. he gave them into the hand of the nations, so that those who hated them ruled over them.
42. Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their power.
43. Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes and were brought low through their iniquity.
44. Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress, when he heard their cry.
45. For their sake he remembered his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
46. He caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive.
47. Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.
48. Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD!

Proverbs 25:13-13
13. Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the soul of his masters.

2 Corinthians 6:1-18
1. Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
2. For he says, "In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
3. We put no obstacle in anyone's way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry,
4. but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities,
5. beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger;
6. by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love,
7. by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left;
8. through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true;
9. as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and yet not killed;
10. as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.
11. We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians; our heart is wide open.
12. You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted in your own affections.
13. In return (I speak as to children) widen your hearts also.
14. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15. What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?
16. What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,
18. and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."
