Isaiah 15

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-9

In this section we have three prophecies: concerning Assyria ( Isa 14:24-27 ), concerning Philistia ( Isa 14:28-32 ), and the commencement of one concerning Moab (15). This fragment concerning Assyria consists of the reaffirmation of Jehovah's intention to break its power. The oath of Jehovah is declared, and its irrevocable certainty affirmed.

The fragment concerning Philistia is of the nature of a warning spoken to her. Although she oppresses the people of God, she is herself in peril. She is not to rejoice because the rod that smote her is broken, for there are other forces at the disposal of Jehovah, and they threaten Philistia.

The prophecy concerning Moab commences by describing her desolation. A catastrophe will overtake her in a night, the result of which will be the mourning of her people, and their scattering far and wide. In this chapter, moreover, we have an incidental record of the death of Ahaz.
