Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 14:29


14:29 Of him - Most understand this of Uzziah, who did then much mischief, #2Chron 26:3|,6. But he was dead thirty - two years before this time, and therefore their joy for his death was long since past. Others understand it of Ahaz: but he was so far from smiting them, that he was smitten by them. We may understand this of the royal race of Judah, who had been a terrible scourge to them, whose rod might be said to be broken, because that scepter was come into the hands of slothful princes. A serpent - From the root of David shall come Hezekiah, who, like a serpent, shall sting thee to death, as he did, #2Kings 18:8|.

    TO GAIL CARELTON - ZION; ISA. WASO.T.; ALL THE O.T. WAS A SHADOW TO BRING US TO CHRIST. ZION IS NOW THE HLY GHOST - USE CONCORDANCE TO LOOK UP N.T. SCRIPTURES ON HOLY GHOST AND HOLY SPIRIT.

    Gail, put all your trust in JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOUR as He is the way, the truth and the life. Spiritual Zion is not of this world just as Israel is not a spot on a map, but is instead a people. Be blessed in Christ Jesus. Amen. Psalms 125:1 A Song of degrees. They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. Isaiah 51:16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

    If Zion is prepaired as a refuge how do we as American Christians find Zion?
  • Will G
    verses 12-15 How different Satans desire from that of our Lord who said, Thy will be done, even when it meant being crucified on a cross for our sins. God has a plan for your day today. He also has a plan for your life. So, what will it be, I will or Thy will?
  • JCs
    12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Son of the morning- Not morning star Damian Rivas- Jesus was called the Bright and morning star not just morning star

    The word star means angels ( why we must think about who is in hollywood ) but that is for another discussion- But-Job 38:7
