Isaiah 14 - AMP

2 And the peoples shall This prophecy (Isa. 14:1, 2) was fulfilled literally and in detail under King Cyrus of Persia and Babylonia. (Ezra 1.)take them and bring them to their own country and help restore them. And the house of Israel will possess them in the land of the Lord as male and female servants; and they will take captive those whose captives they have been, and they will rule over their oppressors. 3 When the Lord has given you rest from your sorrow and pain and from your trouble and unrest and from the hard service with which you were made to serve, 4 You shall take up this parable against the king of Babylon and say, How the oppressor has stilled ! The golden and exacting city has ceased! 5 The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers, 6 Who smote the peoples in anger with incessant blows and trod down the nations in wrath with unrelenting persecution-- he who smote is persecuted and no one hinders any more. 7 The whole earth is at rest and is quiet; they break forth into singing. 8 Yes, the fir trees and cypresses rejoice at you , even the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you have been laid low, no woodcutter comes up against us. 9 Sheol (Hades, the place of the dead) below is stirred up to meet you at your coming ; it stirs up the shades of the dead to greet you--even all the chief ones of the earth; it raises from their thrones all the kings of the nations. 10 All of them will say to you, Have you also become weak as we are? Have you become like us? 11 Your pomp and magnificence are brought down to Sheol (the underworld), along with the sound of your harps; the maggots are spread out under you and worms cover you . 12 How have you fallen from heaven, O The Hebrew for this expression--``light-bringer" or ``shining one"--is translated ``Lucifer" in The Latin Vulgate, and is thus translated in the King James Version. But because of the association of that name with Satan, it is not now used in this and other translations. Some students feel that the application of the name Lucifer to Satan, in spite of the long and confident teaching to that effect, is erroneous. The application of the name to Satan has existed since the third century \A.D.,/ and is based on the supposition that Luke 10:18 is an explanation of Isa. 14:12, which many authorities believe is not true. ``Lucifer," the light-bringer, is the Latin equivalent of the Greek word ``Phosphoros," which is used as a title of Christ in II Pet. 1:19 and corresponds to the name ``radiant and brilliant Morning Star" in Rev. 22:16, a name Jesus called Himself. This passage here in Isa. 14:13 clearly applies to the king of Babylon.light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations 13 And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north. 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. 15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol (Hades), to the innermost recesses of the pit (the region of the dead). 16 Those who see you will gaze at you and consider you, saying, Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms?-- 17 Who made the world like a wilderness and overthrew its cities, who would not permit his prisoners to return home? 18 All the kings of the nations, all of them lie sleeping in glorious array, each one in his own sepulcher. 19 But you are cast away from your tomb like a loathed growth or premature birth or an abominable branch and like the raiment of the slain; and you are clothed with the slain, those thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit , like a dead body trodden underfoot. 20 You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land and have slain your people. May the descendants of evildoers nevermore be named! 21 Prepare a slaughtering place for his sons because of the guilt and iniquity of their fathers, so that they may not rise, possess the earth, and fill the face of the world with cities. 22 And I will rise up against them, says the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son's son, says the Lord. 23 I will also make it a possession of the hedgehog and porcupine, and of The city of Babylon was in the midst of a very fertile area, and it would have seemed reasonable to suppose that, regardless of what happened to the population, the region would always furnish pasturage for flocks. But Isaiah said it would become the possession of wild animals and would be covered with ``marshes and pools of water." This is how that prophecy was literally fulfilled: after Babylon was taken, the whole area around the city was put under water from neglect of the canals and dikes of the Euphrates River. It became stagnant ``marshes and pools of water" among ruins haunted by wild animals, proclaiming to any who might see it that ``surely, as thought and planned, so shall it come to pass" (Isa. 14:24).marshes and pools of water, and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says the Lord of hosts. 24 The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought and planned, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand-- 25 That I will break the Assyrian in My land, and upon My mountains I will tread him underfoot. Then shall the The prophecy against Assyria had actually by this time already been fulfilled, but Isaiah attached it to the as yet unfulfilled prophecy against Babylon as a pledge or guarantee of the fulfillment of the latter.yoke depart from , and his burden depart from their shoulders. 26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth ; and this is hand that is stretched out over all the nations. 27 For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who can annul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back? 28 In the year that King Ahaz died there came this mournful, inspired prediction (a burden to be lifted up): 29 Rejoice not, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that smote you is broken; for out of the serpent's root shall come forth an adder , and its offspring will be a fiery, flying serpent. 30 And the firstborn of the poor and the poorest of the poor shall feed on My meadows, and the needy will lie down in safety; but I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant shall be slain. 31 Howl, O gate! Cry, O city! Melt away, O Philistia, all of you! For there is coming a smoke out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks and none stands aloof . 32 What then shall one answer the messengers of the nation? That the Lord has founded Zion, and in her shall the poor and afflicted of His people trust and find refuge.
