Isaiah 23

Verses 1-18


The Burden of Tyre

1. Tyre’s great disaster (Isaiah 23:1-5 ) 2. The complete overthrow (Isaiah 23:6-14 ) 3. Tyre’s future restoration and degradation (Isaiah 23:15-18 ) Tyre typifies the commercial expansion and glory of the world. Behind this commercial glory stands Satan, the god of this age. Read Ezekiel 28:11-19 . Nebuchadnezzar carried out judgment upon Tyre Ezekiel 29:17-21 . A revival of Tyre is also predicted. We call attention to a statement in the beautiful Forty-fifth Psalm, a millennial Psalm. When the King appears, surrounded by His own, “The daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift” Psalms 45:12 . It is what is indicated in Isaiah’s vision, “And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the Lord.”
