 “A Prophecy About Egypt,” cont’d, Isaiah 19:5) And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.  Jeremiah 51:36.  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.  2 Kings 19:24.  7) The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing 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 (sliding gates) and ponds for fish.

Quest Study Bible – v5-10, “What happened to the Egyptians?”  In addition to being invaded by Sargon ll, the Egyptians had most likely experienced a drought.  The so-called gods of Egypt had failed.  The Nile had fried up and caused economic collapse throughout the country.

Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v5-10, The disruption of the waters and all that is related to them mark’s God’s Attack On The Nation.  The foundations and those who make wages together may be a figure for the whole economic spectrum.

  Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v1-17, God Shall Come Into Egypt With His Judgments.  He Will Raise Up The Causes Of Their Destruction From Among (or, In The Midst Of) Themselves.  When ungodly men escape danger, they are apt to think themselves secure; But Evil Pursues Sinners, And Will Speedily Overtake Them, Except They Repent.  The Egyptians will be given over into the hand of one who shall rule them with rigor, as was shortly after fulfilled.  The Egyptians were renowned for wisdom and science; Yet The Lord Would Give Them Up To Their Own Perverse Schemes, and to quarrel, till their land would be brought by their contests (for supremacy) to an object of contempt and pity.  He Renders sinners afraid of those whom they have despised and oppressed and The Lord Of Hosts, Will Make the workers of iniquity a terror to themselves, and to each other; and every object around a terror to them.
