SEV Biblia, Chapter 47:11 Vendrá, pues, sobre ti mal, cuyo nacimiento no sabrás; caerá sobre ti quebrantamiento, el cual no podrás remediar; y vendrá de repente sobre ti destrucción, la cual tú no conocerás.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 47:11 Verse 11. Thou shalt not know from whence it riseth "Thou shalt not know how to deprecate"] hrj shachrah; so the Chaldee renders it, which is approved by Jarchi on the place; and Michaelis Epim. in Praelect. xix.; see Psa. lxxviii. 34.
Videtur in fine hujus commatis deese verbum, ut hoc membrum prioribus respondeat. "A rord appears to be wanting at the end of this clause to connect it properly with the two preceding. - SECKER.
In order to set in a proper light this judicious remark, it is necessary to give the reader an exact verbal translation of the whole verse:- "And evil shall come upon thee, thou shalt not know how to deprecate it; And mischief shall fall upon thee, thou shalt not be able to expiate it; And destruction shall come suddenly upon thee, thou shalt not know "] What? how to escape, to avoid it, to be delivered from it? perhaps hnmm tax tseth mimmennah, "they could not go out from it, "Jer. xi. 11. I am persuaded that a phrase is here lost out of the text. But as the ancient versions retain no traces of it, and a wide field lies open to uncertain conjecture, I have not attempted to fill up the chasm, but have in the translation, as others have done before me, palliated and disguised the defect, which I cannot with any assurance pretend to supply. - L.
Matthew Henry Commentary
God's judgments on Babylon. (Is. 47:1-6) Carelessness and confidenc shall not prevent the evil. (Is. 47:7-15)
Is. 47:1-6 Babylon is represented under the emblem of a female in dee distress. She was to be degraded and endure sufferings; and i represented sitting on the ground, grinding at the handmill, the lowes and most laborious service. God was righteous in his vengeance, an none should interpose. The prophet exults in the Lord of hosts, as the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel. God often permits wicked men to prevail against his people; but those who cruelly oppress them will be punished.
Is. 47:7-15 Let us beware of acting and speaking as Babylon did; of trusting in tyranny and oppression; of boasting as to our abilities relying on ourselves, and ascribing success to our own prudence an wisdom; lest we partake of her plagues. Those in the height of prosperity, are apt to fancy themselves out of the reach of adversity It is also common for sinners to think they shall be safe, because the think to be secret in wicked ways. But their security shall be their ruin. Let us draw from such passages as the foregoing, those lessons of humility and trust in God which they convey. If we believe the word of God, we may know how it will be with the righteous and the wicked to all eternity. We may learn how to escape the wrath to come, to glorif God, to have peace through life, hope in death, and everlastin happiness. Let us then stand aloof from all delusions __________________________________________________________________
