    SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:1

    ¶ Carga del desierto del mar. Como los torbellinos que pasan por el desierto en la región del Mediodía, así vienen de la tierra horrenda.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 21:1

    Verse 1. The
    desert of the sea] This plainly means Babylon, which is the subject of the prophecy. The country about Babylon, and especially below it towards the sea, was a great flat morass, overflowed by the Euphrates and Tigris. It became habitable by being drained by the many canals that were made in it.

    Herodotus, lib. i. 184, says that "Semiramis confined the Euphrates within its channel by raising great dams against it; for before it overflowed the whole country like a sea. " And Abydenus, (quoting Megasthenes, apud Euseb. Praep. Evang. ix. 41,) speaking of the building of Babylon by Nebuchadonosor, says, "it is reported that all this part was covered with water and was called the sea; and that Belus drew off the waters, conveying them into proper receptacles, and surrounded Babylon with a wall. " When the Euphrates was turned out of its channel by Cyrus, it was suffered still to drown the neighbouring country; and, the Persian government, which did not favour the place, taking no care to remedy this inconvenience, it became in time a great barren morassy desert, which event the title of the prophecy may perhaps intimate. Such it was originally; such it became after the taking of the city by Cyrus; and such it continues to this day.

    As whirlwinds in the south "Like the southern tempests"] The most vehement storms to which Judea was subject came from the desert country to the south of it. "Out of the south cometh the whirlwind, "Job xxxvii. 9. "And there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, "Job i. 19. For the situation of Idumea, the country (as I suppose) of Job, see Lam. iv. 21 compared with Job i. 1, was the same in this respect with that of Judea:- "And JEHOVAH shall appear over them, And his arrow shall go forth as the lightning; And the Lord JEHOVAH shall sound the trumpet; And shall march in the whirlwinds of the south." Zech. ix. 14.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The taking of
    Babylon. (Is. 21:1-10) Of the Edomites. (Is. 21:11,12) O the Arabs. (Is. 21:13-17)

    Is. 21:1-10 Babylon was a flat country, abundantly watered. The destruction of Babylon, so often prophesied of by Isaiah, was typica of the destruction of the great foe of the New Testament church foretold in the Revelation. To the poor oppressed captives it would be welcome news; to the proud oppressors it would be grievous. Let thi check vain mirth and sensual pleasures, that we know not in what heaviness the mirth may end. Here is the alarm given to Babylon, when forced by Cyrus. An ass and a camel seem to be the symbols of the Mede and Persians. Babylon's idols shall be so far from protecting her, tha they shall be broken down. True believers are the corn of God's floor hypocrites are but as chaff and straw, with which the wheat is no mixed, but from which it shall be separated. The corn of God's floo must expect to be threshed by afflictions and persecutions. God' Israel of old was afflicted. Even then God owns it is his still. In all events concerning the church, past, present, and to come, we must loo to God, who has power to do any thing for his church, and grace to d every thing that is for her good.

    Is. 21:11,12 God's prophets and ministers are as watchmen in the cit in a time of peace, to see that all is safe. As watchmen in the camp i time of war, to warn of the motions of the enemy. After a long sleep i sin and security, it is time to rise, to awake out of sleep. We have great deal of work to do, a long journey to go; it is time to be stirring. After a long dark night is there any hope of the day dawning What tidings of the night? What happens to-night? We must never be secure. But many make curious inquiries of the watchmen. They woul willingly have nice questions solved, or difficult prophecie interpreted; but they do not seek into the state of their own souls about the way of salvation, and the path of duty. The watchman answer by way of prophecy. There comes first a morning of light, and peace and opportunity; but afterward comes a night of trouble and calamity If there be a morning of youth and health, there will come a night of sickness and old age; if a morning of prosperity in the family, in the public, yet we must look for changes. It is our wisdom to improve the present morning, in preparation for the night that is coming after it Inquire, return, come. We are urged to do it quickly, for there is n time to trifle. Those that return and come to God, will find they have a great deal of work to do, and but little time to do it in.

    Is. 21:13-17 The Arabians lived in tents, and kept cattle. A destroying army shall be brought upon them, and make them an easy prey. We know not what straits we may be brought into before we die. Those may know the want of necessary food who now eat bread to the full. Neither the skill of archers, nor the courage of mighty men, can protect from the judgments of God. That is poor glory, which will thus quickly come to nothing. Thus hath the Lord said to me; and no word of his shall fal to the ground. We may be sure the Strength of Israel will not lie Happy are those only whose riches and glory are out of the reach of invaders; all other prosperity will speedily pass away __________________________________________________________________
