Isaiah continues his rants against other nations. I imagine him as a Ted Kaczynski type loner living in a cave, making empty threats against all those he thinks have wronged him/Israel in the past. Damascus and Egypt are the focus for this reading.
Women are insulted when they are portrayed as weak creatures;
19:16 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 LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it.
He seems to think that Egypt will become friendly with Israel and Assyria or possibly become a jewish (or christian?) nation. Better hurry up the end of times is coming fast! oh, and Assyria no longer exists according to Wikipedia.
That's the problem with prophesies. Those of us living here in the future have actual history to judge them against. The key is to make a prophesy of a past event in private without dating it, wait several decades for it to be released, and then let the world think you're a freaking great prophet.
Here are some examples from my personal, handwritten journal that will be released on my 100th birthday in the year 2061;
1. In the autumn, those who follow the prophet Mohamed will cause the towers of the great city to erupt in flame. America, the Great Satan will run in fear and confusion. But, their wrath shall be swift and bring death and destruction to the innocent in the land of Allah.
2. The dictator of Babylon shall thump his chest and proclaim to be invincible, but the great army of the west shall drive him into a hole. He shall find final justice at the wrong end of an asp. (see what I did there? I used a metaphor!)
3. God shall exact revenge on the great island nation for the false worship of Hello Kitty. The earth shall open up under their feet, the sea shall wash away the sinful and God's wrath shall glow and spew from their places of great power. Microchip production maybe affected and God will cause longer then usual shipping times for the iPad.
