New International Version
The workers in cloth will be dejected, and all the wage earners will be sick at heart.
King James Bible
And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.
Darby Bible Translation
And her pillars shall be broken in pieces, and all workers for hire shall be sad of soul.
World English Bible
The pillars will be broken in pieces. All those who work for hire will be grieved in soul.
Young's Literal Translation
And its foundations have been smitten, All making wages are afflicted in soul.
Isaiah 19:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And they shall be broken, etc. "Her stores" - שתתיה shathotheyha, αποθηκαι, granaries. - Aquila.
All that make sluices and ponds for fish "All that make a gain of pools for fish" - This obscure line is rendered by different interpreters in very different manners. Kimchi explains אגמי agmey as if it were the same with אגמה agemah, from Job 30:25, in which he is followed by some of the rabbins, and supported by the Septuagint: and שכר secher, which I translate gain, and which some take for nets or enclosures, the Septuagint render by ζυθον, strong drink or beer, which it is well known was much used in Egypt; and so likewise the Syriac, retaining the Hebrew word שכרא sekra. I submit these very different interpretations to the reader's judgment. The Version of the Septuagint is as follows:
Και παντες οἱ ποιουντες τον ζυθον λυπηθησονται, και τας ψυχας πονεσουσι· "And all they that make barley wine shall mourn, and be grieved in soul."

In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it all be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a Saviour, and a great one, and he shall …
