Bible Commentary for Isaiah 14:10

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 14:10


14:8 The trees - Which were felled for the service of her pride and luxury, but now are suffered to stand.

14:9 Thrones - From their graves, which he seems to call their thrones by way of irony: the only thrones now left to them. Thrones both paved and covered with worms, instead of their former thrones, adorned with gold and precious stones.

14:11 Thy pomp - All thy glory is buried with thee. Viols - All thy musical instruments, which were much used in Babylon, and were doubtless used in Belshazzar's solemn feasts, #Dan 5:1|, at which time the city was taken; to which possibly the prophet here alludes. The worm - Instead of those stately carpets upon which thou didst frequently tread.

14:12 Fallen - From the height of thy glory. Lucifer - Which properly is a bright star, that ushers in the morning; but is here metaphorically taken for the mighty king of Babylon. Son - The title of son is given in scripture not only to a person or thing begotten or produced by another, but also to any thing which is related, to it, in which sense we read of the son of a night, #Jonah 4:10|, a son of perdition, #John 17:12|, and, which is more agreeable, to the present case, the sons of Arcturus, #Job 38:32|.
