Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 20:5

_ _ they — the Philistine allies of Egypt who trusted in it for help against Assyria. A warning to the party among the Jews, who, though Judah was then the subordinate ally of Assyria, were looking to Egypt as a preferable ally (Isaiah 30:7). Ethiopia was their “expectation”; for Palestine had not yet obtained, but hoped for alliance with it. Egypt was their “glory,” that is, boast (Isaiah 13:19); for the alliance with it was completed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 20:1-6.
