Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 23:4 Verse 4. Be thou ashamed, O Zidon] Tyre is called ver. 12, the daughter of Sidon. "The Sidonians, "says Justin, xviii. 3, "when their city was taken by the king of Ascalon, betook themselves to their ships, and landed, and built by Tyre. " Sidon, as the mother city is supposed to be deeply affected with the calamity of her daughter.

Matthew Henry Commentary
The overthrow of Tyre. (Is. 23:1-14) It is established again. (Is 23:15-18)
Is. 23:1-14 Tyre was the mart of the nations. She was noted for mirt and diversions; and this made her loth to consider the warnings God gave by his servants. Her merchants were princes, and lived lik princes. Tyre being destroyed and laid waste, the merchants shoul abandon her. Flee to shift for thine own safety; but those that ar uneasy in one place, will be so in another; for when God's judgment pursue sinners, they will overtake them. Whence shall all this troubl come? It is a destruction from the Almighty. God designed to convinc men of the vanity and uncertainty of all earthly glory. Let the ruin of Tyre warn all places and persons to take heed of pride; for he wh exalts himself shall be abased. God will do it, who has all power in his hand; but the Chaldeans shall be the instruments.
Is. 23:15-18 The desolations of Tyre were not to be for ever. The Lor will visit Tyre in mercy. But when set at liberty, she will use her ol arts of temptation. The love of worldly wealth is spiritual idolatry and covetousness is spiritual idolatry. This directs those that have wealth, to use it in the service of God. When we abide with God in ou worldly callings, when we do all in our power to further the gospel then our merchandise and hire are holiness to the Lord, if we look to his glory. Christians should carry on business as God's servants, an use riches as his stewards __________________________________________________________________
