CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lydia - This place is not well known. The Ludim were contiguous to Egypt, Genesis 11:13.
Chub - The Cubians, placed by Ptolemy in the Mareotis. But probably instead of וכוב vechub, "and Chub," we should read וכל vechol, "and All the men of the land," etc. The Septuagint adds "the Persians and the Cretans."

Then the LORD said, "Just as my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot for three years, as a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush,
See, they will come from afar-- some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan."
I will make the land a desolate waste, and her proud strength will come to an end, and the mountains of Israel will become desolate so that no one will cross them.
