Isaiah 19:11-15. “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? 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. The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived: they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof. 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. Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.
Zoan and Noph are two of the most ancient cities in the world. Zoan was a residence of the rulers of ancient Egypt, and where Moses wrought his miracles. These verses are covering both the ancient and the future. Egypt has heard the Words of God many times over its long history; they have had many opportunities to turn to God and avoid the dire straits they will be in. However, they have chosen over and over to listen to false prophets; to vain counselors; to foolish men. The end result is that no one, neither the high and mighty nor the poor and needy, will escape the judgment of God.
No other nation has any cause to look down on Egypt. All nations who have rejected God will suffer the results of their foolishness. No one gets to escape.
