“A Prophecy About Egypt,” lll, Isaiah 19:11) 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 Lord Of Hosts Hath Purposed Upon Egypt.  Acts 7:22.  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 (cornerstones) of the tribes thereof.  14) The Lord 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 (reed), may do.

Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v11, Zoan was the capital of Egypt at this time.  Son here refers to a member of a guild.  v12, Where are your wise men:  The Lord Taunts those that consider themselves wise and learned.  True Knowledge Comes From The Fear Of The Lord.  v13-17, Noph or Memphis was Egypt’s ancient capital.

  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.
