What should I learn from this chapter?
- The willful workings of Lucifer.
Mercy on Jacob
Isaiah 14:1 For the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land (May 15,1948 Israel becomes a nation). (Then, jumping ahead, at the end of the tribulation, at the return of Jesus, and at the following 1,000 year Millennium….) the strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob.
Isaiah 14:2 Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ); they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors.
- Fall of the King of Babylon
Isaiah 14:3 It shall come to pass in the day the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve,
Isaiah 14:4 that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon (When the Antichrist reigns in Jerusalem during the seven year tribulation and sets up the spirit of a Babylonian kingdom in Jerusalem with a global government, currency, religion, and language), and say:
“How the oppressor has ceased,
The golden city (Or insolent) (Jerusalem) ceased!
Isaiah 14:5 The Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) has broken the staff of the wicked,
The scepter of the rulers;
Isaiah 14:6 He (The Antichrist) who struck the people in wrath with a continual (unrelenting) stroke (beating), He who ruled the nations in anger, Is persecuted and no one hinders.
Isaiah 14:7 The whole earth is at rest and quiet; They break forth into singing.
Isaiah 14:8 Indeed the cypress trees (leaders) rejoice over you,
And the cedars (leaders) of Lebanon,
Saying, ‘Since you (Satan as the King of Babylon governing the Antichrist and False Prophet) were cut down (Or: have lain down),
No woodsman has come up against us.’ (No More will other nations come against you).
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell (Sheol) from beneath is excited about you,
To meet you at your coming;
It stirs up the dead for you, (it makes a cocktail of death for you)
All the chief ones of the earth
It has raised up from their thrones
All the kings of the nations.
Isaiah 14:10 They all shall speak and say to you (the Antichrist):
‘Have you also become as weak as we?
Have you become like us?
Isaiah 14:11 Your pomp (arrogance and entitlement) is brought down to Sheol,
And the sound of your stringed instruments (those who flatter you);
The maggot is spread under you, and worms cover you.’ (A bedspread of maggots and worms)
The Fall of Lucifer
Isaiah 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning! (Lit. Day Star)
How you are cut down to the ground (See v8),
You who weakened the nations!
- Literally and figuratively: Lucifer falls from his original high position and he, as Satan, falls from heaven to the earth.
Isaiah 14:13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God (‘ēl);
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
- The mount of the congregation: The location of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem and God’s Sanhedrin in the heavens
Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High (ʿelyôn).’
|1||‘I will ascend into heaven,|
|2||I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;|
|3||I will also sit on the mount of the congregation|
|4||I will ascend above the heights of the clouds|
|5||I will be like the Most High|

Isaiah 14:15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths (Lit. recesses) of the Pit.

Isaiah 14:16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms, (the Antichrist)

And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’ (Would not release his prisoners)
Isaiah 14:18 “All the kings of the nations,
All of them, sleep in glory, Everyone in his own house;
Isaiah 14:19 But you are cast out (puked up out) of your grave Like an abominable (despised) branch,
- To be cast out of a grave for the Antichrist is an “unholy” resurrection.
Like the garment of those who are slain,
Thrust (Pierced) through with a sword,
Who go down to the stones of the pit,
Like a corpse trodden underfoot.
Isaiah 14:20 You will not be joined with them in burial (a resurrection by technology),
Because you (Antichrist) have destroyed your land (the Antichrist is part of the tribes in the land)
And slain your people (those tribes who surround Israel as their enemy).
The brood of evildoers shall never be named.
Isaiah 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children
Because of the iniquity of their fathers,
Lest they rise up and possess the land,
And fill the face of the world with cities.”
Isaiah 14:22 “For I will rise up against them,” says the Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’),
“And cut off from Babylon the name and remnant,
And offspring and posterity,” says the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ).
Isaiah 14:23 “I will also make it a possession for the porcupine,
And marshes of muddy water;
I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” says the Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’).
Isaiah 14:24 The Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’) has sworn, saying,
“Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
And as I have purposed, so it shall stand:
- It is decided and it is done.
Isaiah 14:25 That I will break the Assyrian (The Antichrist with the spirit of Babylon) in My land (Jerusalem),
And on My mountains (Jerusalem) tread him (The Antichrist) underfoot.
Then his yoke shall be removed from them,
And his burden removed from their (Jewish) shoulders.
- During the seven year tribulation the Antichrist, a descendant of Syria, rules in Jerusalem.
Isaiah 14:26 This is the purpose that is purposed against the whole earth (global), And this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.
Isaiah 14:27 For the Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’) has purposed,
And who will annul it?
His hand is stretched out,
And who will turn it back?”
Isaiah 14:28 This is the burden (oracle, prophecy) which came in the year that King Ahaz died.
- This is a literal and metaphoric prophecy: Like Assyria…So the Antichrist. The Antichrist with his coalition will strike Jerusalem in the middle of the tribulation.
Isaiah 14:29 “Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia (Palestine),
Because the rod (Assyria) that struck you is broken;
For out of the serpent’s roots will come forth a viper,
And its offspring will be a fiery flying serpent.
- Serpent (Assyria-Sennacherib)> Viper (Syria-Antiochus IV Ephiphenes) > Fiery Flying Serpent (The Syrian Antichrist).
