The Scofield Bible Commentary, by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, [1917], at

Isaiah Chapter 14

Isaiah 14:9

isa 14:9


Hebrew, "Sheol," Also; 15

(See Scofield) - (Hab 2:5).

Isaiah 14:11

isa 14:11


Hebrew, "Sheol,"

(See Scofield) - (Hab 2:5).

Isaiah 14:12

isa 14:12

son of the morning

Verses 12-14 (Isa 14:12-14) evidently refer to Satan, who, as prince of this world-system (see "World," (Joh 7:7).

(See Scofield) - (Rev 13:8)

is the real unseen ruler of the successive world-powers. Tyre, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, etc. (see (Eze 28:12-14) Lucifer, "day-star," can be none other that Satan. This tremendous passage marks the beginning of sin in the universe. When Lucifer said, "I will," sin began. See

(See Scofield) - (Rev 20:10).

See other instances of addressing Satan through another, (Gen 3:15); (Mat 16:22); (Mat 16:23).

Isaiah 14:15

isa 14:15


Hebrew, "Sheol," Also; (Isa 14:9).

(See Scofield) - (Hab 2:5).

Isaiah 14:22

isa 14:22


See note 2;

(See Scofield) - (Isa 13:1).

Isaiah 14:26

isa 14:26

whole earth

This universality is significant and marks the whole passage as referring, not merely to a near judgment upon Assyria, but in a yet larger sense to the final crash of the present world-system at the end of the age. (See "Times of the Gentiles," (Luk 21:24); (Rev 16:14); (Dan 2:44); (Dan 2:45) "Armageddon,"; (Rev 16:14); (Rev 19:17). No other such universal catastrophe on the nations is known to Scripture.

Isaiah 14:28

isa 14:28


See note 1;

(See Scofield) - (Isa 13:1).

Isaiah 14:29

isa 14:29

come forth

The descendants of Ahaz.

Isaiah 14:32

isa 14:32


(See Scofield) - (Psa 2:12).)
