The highway between Egypt and Assyria (Isa 19:23-19:23)

“On that day,

There will be a highway

From Egypt to Assyria.

The Assyrians

Will come into Egypt.

The Egyptians

Will come into Assyria.

The Egyptians will worship

With the Assyrians.”

Here is some kind of utopian vision where Egypt and Assyria having a highway built in between them. Not only that, they would also worship together. This is one of the few ecumenical biblical moments. The Egyptians have just converted to Yahweh. Apparently, the Assyrians were going to do the same. This is the special day of the Lord in the future that never comes.
