SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:7 Â¿No era ésta vuestra ciudad alegre, su antigí¼edad de muchos días? Sus pies la llevarán a peregrinar lejos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 23:7 Verse 7. Whose antiquity is of ancient days "Whose antiquity is of the earliest date"] Justin, in the passage above quoted, had dated the building of Tyre at a certain number of years before the taking of Troy; but the number is lost in the present copies. Tyre, though not so old as Sidon, was yet of very high antiquity: it was a strong city even in the time of Joshua.
It is called rx rxbm ry[ ir mibtsar tsor, "the city of the fortress of Sor, "Josh. xix. 29. Interpreters raise difficulties in regard to this passage, and will not allow it to have been so ancient; with what good reason I do not see, for it is called by the same name, "the fortress of Sor, "in the history of David, 2 Sam. xxiv. 7, and the circumstances of the history determine the place to be the very same. See on ver. 1.
Whose antiquity is of ancient days, may refer to Palaetyrus, or Old Tyre.
Her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.] This may belong to the new or insular Tyre; her own feet, that is, her own inhabitants, shall carry her-shall transport the city, from the continent to the island. "But the text says it shall be carried far off, and the new city was founded only half a mile distant from the other. " I answer, qwjrm merachok does not always signify a great distance, but distance or interval in general; for in Josh. iii. 4 qwjr rachok is used to express the space between the camp and the ark, which we know to have been only two thousand cubits. Some refer the sojourning afar off to the extent of the commercial voyages undertaken by the Tyrians and their foreign connexions.
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 __________________________________________________________________
